Could EU regulation change the way you vape?

Worried about how the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) could affect the way you want to vape?
Don’t panic. We’ve got it covered.

If you haven't heard of it already, the TPD is a set of new rules about how we sell, package, test and advertise e‑cigs and e‑liquids – even though they contain no tobacco!

The rules that directly affect how you vape are:

  • E-liquids can only be sold in 10ml bottles.
  • E-liquid nicotine strength is limited to a lower legal maximum of 1.8%.
  • Cartomisers and tanks must have a max. capacity of 2ml.

It’s business as usual – for the time being

Although the rules come into effect on 20 May 2016, we’re allowed to continue to sell our normal range right up until May 2017.

So the good news is that the rules won’t affect you for a while, because we have sufficient supplies of 25ml and 50ml bottles of V2 Platinum E-liquid, plus 2.4% nicotine in both e-liquid and prefilled cartridges.

And if you want a tank with greater capacity than 2ml, consider buying a V2 PRO Series 7 sooner rather than later.

In short, you can trust V2 to make sure you don’t go without the vaping kit you want.

Welsh reject plan to ban
vaping in public

An attempt to ban the use of e-cigs in public places in Wales was defeated by just one vote on 16 March in the Welsh Assembly.

Conservative Shadow Health Minister, Darren Millar, said a ban would have been a huge step backwards for smoking cessation and efforts to improve public health.

"Labour ministers are totally misguided in their war on e-cigarettes” he explained. “There is no evidence supporting their plans and they should have been ditched months ago. Ultimately, we should be giving people a helping hand to quit smoking – not placing obstacles in their way."

Vaping encouraged by enlightened council

On 9 March, National No Smoking Day, a team from Bristol City Council were offering free carbon monoxide tests outside the city’s e-cig shops.

Why? To demonstrate that carbon monoxide is found in cigarettes but not e-cigs.

A council spokesperson explained that “e-cigarettes still provide nicotine, which is what people smoke for, but without the damaging tar, toxic substances and carbon monoxide which cause serious health problems.”

Vaping word of the month:

Which is short for ‘Anti Nicotine Tobacco Zealot’.

We all know an Antz: the reformed smoker who preaches the dangers of nicotine and tobacco, gets their facts horribly wrong and has an unreasonable determination to undermine the rights of vapers.

We must – using intelligent, reasoned argument – ‘step on the Antz’. Metaphorically, of course!
