Take ‘Charge’ of Your E-Cigarette Safety

Take ‘Charge’ of Your E-Cigarette Safety

We’ve had a few recent examples of electronic cigarette dangers highlighted once again in the media.

It seems that as the health benefits of switching to vaping and e-cigarettes are becoming more apparent and researched the media are scouring the land looking for stories to highlight other dangers to put a dampener of the proverbial vaping spirits.

The most recent stories focus on ‘exploding chargers’. It should be fairly obvious that using an unsuitable charger with a device is a recipe for potential disaster. So purplebox vapours urge all e-cigarette users to only use the correct charger with their device. This may mean that, instead of buying from an unknown online source, you do a little research on the company you want to buy from. Ideally they will have a store you can visit first and ensure they have genuine models and can offer advice on using your chosen vaping device properly. You can then buy future supplies online from your trusted source. At the very least, give them a call before you buy.

We would also encourage people not to leave charging devices unattended for any long period of time. For example – overnight, in the car, left in the house for the day, and certainly not near anything flammable such as an oxygen tank.

purplebox vapours advise getting the right green light on chargers

Vaping devices, electronic cigarettes and e-liquids are adult products and should be treated with care and attention. There are warnings on the packaging so please follow them. Use and store your electronic cigarettes and e-liquids correctly and you will avoid any associated problems.

There are many other examples of incorrect chargers ‘exploding’ or ‘melting’ when being used with mobile phones, iPads, electric shavers etc. but they are not newsy enough for a media story. Vaping and electronic cigarettes are changing people’s lives for the better so let’s not give the media any more opportunities to be pejorative towards vaping – just use your common sense.

If you need any information on your electronic cigarette or vaping kit then please call purplebox vapours and we’ll be happy to help.

The Vaping Effect - Smoking Rates Fall to Lowest Level Ever
The Vaping Effect - Smoking Rates Fall to Lowest Level Ever

by Steve Barrett

‘Smoking rates in England fall to lowest on record’ isn’t much of a headline in itself. Smoking rates have been in long-term decline for decades, so any given year is likely to have the fewest smokers on record.

What Deborah Arnott, of ASH, cannot quite bring herself to say is that it is the e-cigarette, not big government interference, that has been the game-changer. As Public Health England has acknowledged, e-cigarettes are the most popular stop-smoking aid.
