V4L Hosts 3rd Annual Great American Smokeout Trade-A-Pack event

The Great American Smokeout was created on November 18, 1976 by the California Division of the American Cancer Society. It takes place on the third Thursday of November. This year is our third hosting a free “trade-a-pack” event in our Smokeless Lounge. On Thursday, November 21, smokers are welcome to trade their pack of smokes for an ecigarette kit any time between 9:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. The kit includes a Vapor King battery, a cartomizer, and a USB Charger. Our Lounge will be open for one extra hour to accommodate those who can’t come until after work.

Please let me vape on the job!

Nope, not smoke, it’s vapor!

Are you allowed to vape at work? If you can, good for you! That’s great that your employer is smart enough to realize that he/she’s saving time and money by allowing you to use your ecig. If you’re not as fortunate, I hope that you’ll be able to change your employer’s mind after giving him/her some info.

Sweet or sour e-liquid contest

With a new proposed cigarette tax, it’s time for you to start “vaping”

[Pic from our party: http://on.fb.me/1ab0rLf]

If there was ever a time to switch to ecigs, it’s now. Today Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel presented his new 2014 budget to the Chicago City Council. If approved, cigarettes will cost 75 cents more per pack! Chicago would have the highest cigarette tax in the country. This would give the city an extra $10 million in revenue. Are you willing to shell out more dough for your cigarettes?

Should I get the Dial-A-Volt or Vapor Zeus?

A lot of people ask me, “should I get the Vapor Zeus or Dial-A-Volt?” I usually say both, because they are totally different and both revolutionary in their own way. If you have to choose one, then I hope when you’re done reading this you’ll have enough info to decide. Both our Vapor Zeus and Dial-A-Volt batteries come in two versions – manual and auto. Actually the Vapor Zeus Dual Mode – get this – has BOTH options. Very cool. These batteries have a soft touch, just like our Vapor Titan stick batts. They come in 5 colors (black, blue, cigar, green, and magenta). Both the Zeus and DAV are KR808D-threaded and will work with Smileomizers, 808 tanks, CoolCarts and WOW Vapor cartomizers. The main differences between the Zeus and Dial-A-Volt is that the Zeus can be used as a passthrough, and the DAV’s voltage can be adjusted.

Update on Evanston’s potential ecig ban

Evanston City Council

Last night, BHam, Brian, and I attended an Evanston City Council meeting. We were there to show our opposition to their potential ordinance that would prohibit vaping in any place that now prohibits smoking. We were happy to see that our friend Stephanie (“Loveridden” on the forums), several Vapor4Life customers, a Wicker Park vapor shop owner, Michael Cozy – a CASAA rep, and a few other vapers were also there in support of ecigs.

Vapers, we need your help! The Evanston City Council (Chicago suburb) will hear testimony and likely vote on a vaping ban this coming Monday, October 14. The hearing will take place around 7:30 p.m. at the Lorraine H. Morton Civic Center at 2100 Ridge Ave. in Evanston, IL. The Ordinance No. 80-0-13 would prohibit the sale of ecigs and e-liquid to minors, but ALSO ban vaping wherever smoking is banned in the city.

Ecigs and Bloody Marys

Any Bloody Mary fans in the house? Vapor4Life recently attended Highwood’s Bloody Mary Festival. Bright and early Saturday morning I arrived with my car full of equipment and ecig products. At 8 a.m. there were a handful of other vendors getting their booths set up. After figuring out where our booth would be, I got to work setting up the tent and tables. Luckily Joey from our tech team was there to help.
