Was 2013/14 the year e-cigarettes came of age?

It can be difficult to pinpoint exactly when something hits the mainstream and becomes a success, but future historians may look at the 2013/14 financial year (April to March) as a crucial 12 months for e-cigarettes. In many ways, it is the year that they came of age.
A wildly grandstanding statement this may be, but it could well be true. It goes without saying that the statistics on usage, sales and suchlike can back this idea up; however, there is also generally a much greater awareness – and acceptance – of e-cigarettes among people you might meet.

Where a couple of years ago you might still get some very odd looks from people if you were to vape – perfectly legally – in a public place, nowadays this is very much accepted. The e-cigarette category has entered the mainstream and it shows no signs of disappearing any time soon.

Disposable vs rechargeable: which e-cigarette should I buy?

You know you want an e-cigarette but it turns out there are two different types to consider – disposable and rechargeable. So which one should you buy?

By thinking about why you are making the purchase you should be able to work out which one is right for you. After all, this is not quantum physics – you are essentially choosing between paying more upfront for a product that will save you money in the long run or paying quite a bit less for the initial e-cigarette. For a full breakdown of pricing – and savings – check out our comparison of SKYCIG e-cig kits with the disposable equivalent and conventional tobacco.

Romeo + Juliet: can a smoker and a vaper date?

There have been many tragic pairings in the history of literature; lovers kept apart by character flaws or circumstance… But how many times have you read about a vaper and a smoker living happily ever after? Are they destined to be the Romeo and Juliet of the smoking world, with smoke and vapour representing the houses of Montague and Capulet?
This is of course an exaggeration and one that is partly shrouded in some uncertainty simply because e-cigarettes have not been a mainstream product for very long. It’s like questioning why you never see people celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary after having met over an energy drink…
And yet it is still worth pondering this: can a modern couple live in peace while one smokes cigarettes and the other is using e-cigs?

How SKYCIG ensure our products are top quality

Given that there is some concern over the quality of some of the e-cigarettes currently on the market, we wanted to just go into a bit more detail on the subject to put all of you (our lovely customers!) at ease. There are lots of reports out there talking about the “unregulated” e-cigarette industry. Officially it is unregulated but those of us who are serious about our customers’ welfare and our business self-regulate to ensure our products meet high standards of quality. We would particularly recommend that you ensure any e-cigarette brand you use is a member of the Electronic Cigarette Industry Trade Association.

To go into a bit more detail about how we work and ensure quality control, we need to start at the SKYCIG factory…
