Don't Let the Dastards Get y

Smaller bottles of e-liquid delivering lower percentages of nicotine from smaller tanks... If you didn’t know better, you’d be a bit depressed by what’s about to occur on May 20th – all thanks to the dastardly Tobacco Products Directive.

But there’s no need to be sad (or, er, droopy). We have all the answers to your problems. Even the ones you didn’t know you had!

This month, we explain how the implementation of the Tobacco Products Directive will affect you in three significant ways and, most important of all, the practical steps you can take to ensure it’s ‘vaping as usual’ after May 20th. We also show you how to make a vapour ‘jellyfish’, which should cheer you up even more.

Happy Vaping.

The new V2 Trinity is the dog’s...


...Um, it's really good

Okay, so from 20 May you won’t be able to buy 2.4% nicotine strength e-liquid or cartridges anymore. But don’t worry. Even with the lower strengths demanded by the TPD, the new V2 Trinity Vaping Kit will deliver the nicotine hit you need, thanks to its sub-ohm vaping capability, variable settings and range of accessories.

Interchangeable atomisers allow you to tailor the resistance of your device for PG (propylene glycol) or VG (vegetable glycerin) e-liquid with your choice of standard or sub-ohm technology. And the Trinity tank holds up to 2ml of e-liquid and features a convenient top-fill design.

The 1.2ohm atomiser is for PG e-liquids, while the 0.8ohm one is for VG blends. You can buy a 0.5ohm atomiser separately. The Trinity also features a variable output of 5-40W.

All of which means you can customise the voltage and temperature of your device to create the optimum vaporising environment for your preferred e-liquid.

See what all the fuss is about

The V2 Trinity is the neat sub-ohm answer
to vaping legislation

The V2 Trinity Kit includes: a vaporiser in blue or black, with an e-liquid tank, standard atomiser (1.2 Ω), sub-ohm atomiser (0.8 Ω), USB charging cord and a user manual.


What’s sub-ohm vaping?


It simply means using a vape pen with an atomiser tank that can work at under 1ohm of resistance. The result is threefold:

* Impressive vapour production
* More intense flavour
* Warmer vapour

Will you become, or are you already, a sub-ohm vaper?



The results of March’s survey

Do you know what the TPD is?

Yes 22%  

Scare study debunked

The chemical Diacetyl has been linked to a serious lung disease called bronchiolitis obliterans or ‘popcorn lung’ – so named because it was prevalent among workers making butter-flavoured popcorn, the main flavouring of which was Diacetyl.

In a recent study that many believe was instigated to scare vapers, researchers from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in the USA reported finding Diacetyl in 39 of 51 flavours of e-liquids they tested. Levels ranged from below quantifiable to 239 micrograms per e-cig cartridge.

However, the study shot itself in the foot because, in layman’s terms, that actually means the average diacetyl exposure from vaping is 750 times lower than from smoking. Hurrah!
Yes Han, it's very big, but if it doesn't sub ohm it's no use to me

FACT: UK smoking hits new low thanks to vaping



* The number of smokers has reached its lowest since records began in 1974.

* More than a million people are using vaping as a way to quit smoking.

* 17.2% of the population smoked in 2015 – down from 20.1% in 2010.

Thinking out of the (smoke) box

‘There is a certain logic in confining smoking to rooms where only smokers are harmed, but it does not square well with the evidence on effective smoke-free laws.’ Says Martin Dockrell, Tobacco Control Programme Lead at Public Health England, who has shown admirable lateral thinking about the issue.

‘In practice when you allow smoke indoors, it is very hard to confine it only to the lungs of smokers. But it got me thinking. What if our smokefree parks mean that parents who smoke (often the most disadvantaged) became less likely to take their children to the park? What if making the outdoor areas of council estates smoke-free meant that more people smoked inside?

By permitting vaping in the park but not smoking, smokers might be more inclined to try vaping. Once they have started vaping, they might then feel more able to make their homes smoke-free.’

How to do ‘The Jellyfish’

* Pull a large amount of vapour into your mouth. Open your mouth wide by lowering your jaw, so you gather more smoke in your mouth instead of just your lungs.

* Make a large O shape with your mouth. Your lips should make a round opening – lowering your jaw will make the opening bigger. Don’t puff out your cheeks. And don't exhale or inhale. The vapour should remain as a dense cloud in your mouth.

* Curl the tip of your tongue to the far back of your mouth. Then flick your tongue forward, scraping the top of your mouth or just beneath it, to push smoke quickly through the O opening of your lips.

* Quickly take another hit of vapour from your device and exhale into the o-ring – and voila, one ‘Jellyfish’.
