Research

Vaping technology and terminology can get a bit confusing. But we have taken a deep-dive into the subjects and technologies that impact adult vapers everywhere.

  1. Strict E-Cig Laws Punish Marginalized Groups

    Strict E-Cig Laws Punish Marginalized Groups

    There are plenty of hobbyists who enjoy zero nicotine e-juice, but the vast majority of e-cig users are former smokers. For those of us in this group, access to a nicotine delivery platform that is free of smoke and ash has been a game changer. Society as a whole is gradually moving away puritanical strictures regarding marijuana use. Alcohol prohibition was discredited nearly a century ago. Why does vaping alone face ramped up legal pressure and ever more stringent FDA regulations?

    The Wealthy Don't Vape

    The answer can be found in smoking trends. A Washington Post report in 2015 outlined in detail how the wealthy have almost entirely stopped smoking cigarettes. It is among marginalized groups that cigarettes remain most prevalent. The same trends

  2. World's First UL Certified Vape Pen

    World's First UL Certified Vape Pen

    Vaping Safety

    The Joyetech eGo AIO, an acronym that stands for All-In-One, is a graceful design that has stood the test of time. It has also withstood the rigors of safety certification testing at Underwriters Laboratories (UL). As the world's first UL certified vape pen, it brings the issue of vaping safety back into the forefront. Vape pens have an enviable safety track record. The London Fire Brigade recommended smokers switch to e-cigs because vaping prevents house fires. This is just another example of the UK being light years ahead of the US in regards to the benefits of vaping. Perhaps because of this record of safety, the occasional vape battery injury almost always goes viral and results in plenty of hand-wringing from vaping critics.The truth behind the headlines is far different. There has been one recorded vape battery fatality. In the US alone, house fires caused by cigarettes have killed

  3. Juul Strikes Back With Study on E-Juice Flavors

    Juul Strikes Back With Study on E-Juice Flavors

    Confronting the Fruit Flavor Fallacy

    The myth that sweet flavors were created in order to hook minors is a zombie vaping myth and refuses to die. No matter how many times it has been debunked, this fruit flavor fallacy remains an existential threat to the e-cig industry. It has been tenuously linked to the teen vaping epidemic by extremists and drives their proposed e-cig flavor bans. The vape pod giant Juul is finally pushing back against this false narrative. Last week they released a pair of studies which demonstrated how sweet flavors can help adults successfully transition from combustible cigarettes to electronic alternatives. These studies add to the existing evidence, which shows that the majority of adult vapers prefer fruit

  4. Battery Comparison: 18650 vs. 21700 In Vape Mods

    Battery Comparison: 18650 vs. 21700 In Vape Mods

    The Long History of the 18650

     The rechargeable 18650 lithium ion battery has long been the standard issue power pack for vape mods. The 18650 name is derived from the battery’s dimensions: 18 mm in diameter and 65 mm in length.  Designed in the 1990s, this redoubtable design has found its way into laptops, flashlights, electric bikes and even the original Tesla roadster. You read that correctly, the industry disrupting Tesla electric roadster is powered by the same batteries that you use in your favorite mod. Tesla made a smart move picking the 18650 for their first car. Literally billions of 18650s are manufactured each year and any bugs or subpar manufacturers have long since been identified. Vapor4Life only purchases batteries from reputable manufacturers such as Samsung, LG, Aspire and VRK. Lithium ion batteries are not inherently dangerous, but common sense is required. We recommend that you check out this article on 18650 battery safety. T

  5. The Teen Vaping Epidemic

    The Teen Vaping Epidemic

    In 2018, twice as many high school students used e-cigarettes as the year before. This disturbing trend, and the resultant political fallout, threatens the future of the vaping industry.

    The Truth Behind the Headlines

    It has been impossible to miss the surge in press coverage on teen vaping. And it is not only media wags who are sounding off. In an FDA press release in September, the word “epidemic” was used 10 times. This alarmist document was followed 2 months later by restrictive new FDA regulations on e-cigarettes. Until the use of e-cigs by minors is resolved, it will continue to drive the narrative on vaping and keep e-cigarettes firmly in the crosshairs of regulators. Worse still, the recent spike in teen vaping has given anti-vapers additional leverage to promote punitive restrictions on e-cigarettes and jui

  6. Debunked: Toxic Metals In E-Cig Vapor Study

    Debunked: Toxic Metals In E-Cig Vapor Study

    Fear Based Content and Vaping

    From heart medicine, to breakfast cereal, shampoo, sandwiches, vitamins and everything between, the presence of chemicals or toxic heavy metals in a product will always alarm consumers. It is reasonable to expect safety standards to be rigorously enforced, but the fact is that sensational headlines about “hidden dangers” also make great click bait. Critics of vaping did not pause to consider the validity of the research when trumpeting the discovery of toxic metals in e-cig vapor last February. In a case of classic confirmation bias, it told critics what they wanted to hear and was promptly accepted as gospel. E-cigarettes and vaporizers are an easy target for this sort of attack. The concept of harm reduction is an anathema to a significant percentage of the population and there is an all too human tendency to disapprove of any act

  7. Iowa Attorney General Blasts New FDA E-Cig Regulations

    Iowa Attorney General Blasts New FDA E-Cig Regulations

    Concerns About New FDA Regulations

    Federal and state regulators are facing a high stakes issue: How to protect the interests of adults who use e-cigarettes while also preventing minors from accessing these products. The FDA’s new e-cig regulations represent an extreme approach. Is there a better approach that protects children without harming both the adults who use e-cigs and the convenience stores that sell them.

    Iowa Attorney General Embraces Evidence and Harm Reduction

    In a tautly reasoned letter to the FDA, Iowa’s Attorney General (AG) Thomas Miller adopted a humane and rational stance: “Young people suffer significant harm when a parent or other significant people in their lives die or are incapacitated by smoking-related disease.” The Iowa AG’s letter debunked a number of popula

  8. Health effects in COPD smokers who switch to e Cigarettes

    Vaping and COPD Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is one of the nastier side effects of smoking. While not unique to smokers alone, COPD is known to occur at much higher rates in those who smoke and is currently the third leading cause of death in the United States. The most effective way to prevent COPD from getting exponentially worse is to quit smoking traditional cigarettes, a tall order to a lifelong smoker with an addiction. But what about vaping? The effects of switching in whole or in part to vaping nicotine e-juice rather than smoking traditional tobacco products is largely unexplored in COPD patients. However, one of the first peer-reviewed

  9. FDA Puts Hold On Terrifying Torture Of Monkeys For Nicotine Research  

      FDA-monkey-torture-nicotine-research The FDA recently put a stop to its ongoing torture of monkeys for the sake of nicotine research after a personal appeal from primatologist and animal advocate Jane Goodall. Among the cruel experiments, the monkeys were forced to undergo was one test in which they were able to dose themselves with nicotine.   In a September letter addressed to FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, Goodall wrote, “I have been told that FDA researchers implant squirrel monkeys as young as one-year-old with devices to deliver nicotine directly into their bloodstreams. The young primates are then placed in restraint devices and trained to press l

  10. Study Suggests Vaping Could Save 6.6 Million Lives In U.S.

      study-vaping-saves-lives The next time someone gives you a hard time about vaping, you’ll have scientific data on your side. The Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center just released results of a study that shows nearly 6.6 million lives could be saved by vaping within the next decade. The researchers stress that this critical number should encourage health experts to rethink their approach to vaping.   The study, which was published in Tobacco Control journal, takes a hypothetical approach to the consequences that would happen if the majority of smokers switched to vaping. On the other side of the coin, it examines the outcome of vaping becoming obsolete.
