Also, their batteries are a little glitchy, so keep extras charged and on hand if you chose this product. Luckily, there are vape juice brands that are safer and do not use diacetyl as an ingredient for e-liquid flavoring. Corinna July 22, Author.
In , there was a study carried out by German researchers to compare the health risks of vaping and tobacco smoking. The side-by-side study concluded that e-cigarettes are much safer than smoking. The only point raised by the study was the presence of formaldehyde in some of the e-cigs tested. Researchers concluded that this chemical was formed during the manufacturing process by the heating of propylene glycol.
There is little to choose between the major brands of e-liquid. The major differences appear only in the flavourings some are better than others and the proportions of blended ingredients. In some flavours, the volume of propylene glycol is higher than in others.
One of the few companies who have committed themselves to clear labelling of all ingredients is Pure Eliquids. You can view a full breakdown of ingredients of a V2 e-liquid by visiting their site and you can view the batch report on the specific batch of liquid you have purchased. V2 tests every single batch and publishes its findings on Data Safety Sheets to prove that each batch is the same quality as the first one and all their liquids are pure.
Vapemate only uses the highest pharmaceutical and food-grade ingredients manufactured in the UK, EU or US in our e-liquid. The company also tests its e-liquid randomly and periodically using full GCMS analysis. The company uses fewer chemical ingredients than others and any research they undertake centres on the health of the consumer. While some experts believe that replacing any amount of cigarette smoking with vaping is a good thing, some research suggests that dual use may be riskier than either smoking or vaping alone.
An August study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine found that both daily smoking and vaping are associated with a higher risk of heart attack, and that doing the two concurrently compounds those risks. E-cigarettes may also have a large impact on lung cancer. Compared with cigarettes, they contain far fewer of the ingredients known to cause cancer, and the ones they do contain are present at lower levels. There is also no evidence proving that e-cigarettes cause cancer.
Plus, comparisons with cigarettes go only so far, since e-cigarettes are a radically different product, says Silvia Balbo, assistant professor of environmental health sciences at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health. Though studies in this area are preliminary, some research suggests that e-cigs may carry health risks. In a small study this year , Balbo and her colleagues found that 15 minutes of vaping produces compounds that can damage DNA in the mouths of e-cigarette users.
The study involved only five people and did not track their health over time. But Balbo says the kind of DNA changes they observed could be related to multiple types of cancer, including oral and lung. Other early studies have reached similar conclusions. Another, published in Scientific Reports in May, found that e-cigarettes contain more of the potential carcinogen formaldehyde than previously estimated.
There are other potential lung concerns. Diacetyl , a chemical commonly found in flavored e-liquids, has been linked to respiratory disease. In an ideal world, of course, a smoker who wants to quit would ditch nicotine entirely. Teen use of e-cigs is sharply rising, according to federal data; they are now more popular than cigarettes among high school students. I notice that sometimes the vapor can irritate the back of my throat much more than real cigarettes.
The taste is quite diffrent and at first I thought no way is this gonna work for me. I smoked two real cigs on the day that I first got my safe cig. The safecig does actually eliminate cravings. The second day I was becoming use to the safe cig and had figured out how to draw properly. I smoked one real marlboro medium that day and to me it did not taste any better than the ecig I was becoming accoustom to.
I actually like the classic tobacco flavor ecig. So easy to use, the case is great to carry the bits. So far so good. Their product is bulletproof. Excellent design, the battery and cartridge just screw together. Their shipping is excellent. Arrival dates are easy to track, they use the USPS and send e-mail.
I still have a traditional cigarette. I do it in the morning with coffee. I do it with some friends and co-workers. The HUGE issue is when you are private and on your computer or on the phone or any time you need a butt, Safecig just makes the nicotine thing fine. I hope this helped. I was a two pack a day. I bet it lasts me two months. I thought the safe cig was a good product. I bought the 24mg strength and it was too much. It gave me a sore throat. I switched to mediums and it was better.
I wish they had more flavors though. They only have traditional, tobacco and menthol. The menthol tastes like spearmint gum. The other two just taste bad. Overall, the safe cig is good, but I still use my Blu Cigs for other flavors like vanilla and java. Overall, good value. A little heavy feeling for my taste, but the battery charge and cartridges last a LONG time!! And I USE it!! After many months of reviewing every site availbe regarding ECigs, I finally decided on the Safe Cig.
Their customer service was great phone and email. Apparently not awake at on New Years Eve. I called customer service and the the woman was extremely nice but did not know anything about the discount, yet suggested I wait a bit and then try it again. She did NOT try to bully me into placing an order! I email the site and within a few hours I received a response email stating that the site had not yet been set up to take the orders, but they would honor the discount if I had already purchased.
Very cool. The draw is great and the only problem I have is trying to remember where I put the darn thing! This is the fifth brand that I am trying and it is the only brand I will be buying from now on!! Outstanding product and my cravings for tobacco cigarettes is not even there!!
YAY This is the only brand out of the five that I feel is worth the money!! I ordered a SafeCig deluxe kit after reading so many positive reviews and realizing they are one of a very few that offer a 30 day money back guarantee AND lifetime warranty on their product. Sometimes closer to two and have smoked for over 30 years.
SafeCigs batteries last me roughly hours and they charge back up in only about 90 minutes. Another great feature is the charger shuts off when the battery is charged so you can plug it in and go to bed. Many of the other brands, you have to watch the time and unplug after the specified time or risk damaging the batteries.
The cartridges come in 6 different nicotine levels, the highest being 24mg. The draw is easy and a long slow draw will produce a considerable cloud. One question I never had answered before ordering was does the nicotine level translate to harshness. Apparently not. The higher nicotine level cartridges do not seem to me to be any harsher. So if you think you might need 24 mg. To me at least, the taste and throat hit is the same regardless of nicotine level.
Customer service and shipping are second to none. I received my starter kit in three days. Of the three batteries in the kit, two worked flawlessly but the third while it did work sometimes took a very hard draw to activate. I filled out a support ticket on their web site one evening and the next day they responded with apologies and were shipping out a brand new, tested replacement immediately. Bottom line, I could not be more impressed and we are ordering another kit for my wife.
I would highly recommend going with the deluxe kit as the extras you get for the price are a good deal and I wanted the security of a third battery. The carrying case is really nice as well to keep everything together and protected. SafeCig is obviously at the head of the game with a product that I believe is second to none and have proven they stand behind their product as well. Well done SafeCig. Keep up the good work, and thanks for getting me off tobacco.
I absolutely love the SafeCig. I have been smoking since high school about 10 years and have been able to give up regular cigarettes immediately. The draw is great, the vapor is great and the menthol 18mg is minty-delicious much better than the Newports I have been hooked on for years. I decided to purchase the SafeCig after realizing the damage smoking has been doing to my body, mostly due to cold weather asthma. I feel great. I started with South Beach and had no complaints other then the feel of the cigarette.
I smoke Capri Lights which are very narrow and long. The hard feel bothered me. I only ordered Safe Cig to compare the two cigarettes. I got my Safe today, and it is a much better response then the South Beach. It is more like a real cigarette. I am extremely impressed with The Safe Cig. I have some friends who vape and they all have different brands. We have all let each other try them out and The Safe Cig was the best at taste and vapor production.
I wish they had a better case to carry with though. Their e-cigs are larger that alot and do not fit in alot of traditional cigarette cases. But the quality of the product is amazing. The shipping was fast and the tracking actually worked with USPS to my astonishment. I would highly recommend this brand to anyone wishing to try Vaping. Its the closest to real cigs ive found. Just make sure you do research before ordering online. Some e-cigs out there may look great but be horrible.
Thank god The Safe Cig wasnt. Spent two days researching personal reviews of different e-cig brands, eliminated many brands by reading review sites. Only ordered the Safe Cig kit to try it out, not to quit smoking. In the first few days of use my tobacco cigarette smoking has been nearly eliminated!
Good fortune with your e-cigarette purchase decision. I tried Electronic Cigarette Inc first about 1 year ago. Their ecigs did not work very well but their support was great. Their ecigs worked a bit better but still were not satisfactory and the cartridges that did work did not last very long. I tried to get a refund and they refused.
I gave up on ecigs until later this year when my cough from regular cigarettes got so bad I had to quit. So, I quit for a few days and delt with the cravings. For fear I would cave and smoke regular cigarettes again, I researched reviews of ecigs for hours and narrowed things down to safe cig and green smoke. I have been free of regular cigs since. Every cartridge works and lasts. Some work slightly better than others but on average they work great. Even if I only had 2 batteries, I would still be OK.
I also no longer have the embarrassing weeze that occurs from time to time when smoking regular cigarettes. My teeth which were only slightly discolored before are almost completely white now. My only remaining concern is whether they are completely benign or if there is some sort of minor harm being done. OK…to get nitpicky. I wish there were a white cartridge option. I also wish there were a volume discount for buying several boxes of cartridges at once.
I gave 4 stars for speed of shipment because I had to wait about a week from the time of my order for the shipment to arrive. If it had been 3 days or less, I would have given 5 stars. There are times I really enjoy smoking, like the first cigarette of the day with a strong cup of morning coffee. There are other times and these times are increasing that I absolutely hate being a smoker.
E-cigs do seem to take care of the oral fixation of a smoker and remove the harmful chemicals and byproducts that come with smoking real cigarettes. Also unlike chewing nicotine gum you can drink a cup of coffee or have a beer while you get a dose of nicotine. I decided to get the Safe Cig and I have to say that it is very impressive. Each cartridge lasts at least as long as two packs of regular cigarettes.
There are three flavors to choose from and many levels of nicotine as well. Think of cigarette smoke that tastes better. But it does give a good punch for the most part and no second hand smoke. I have been using the 14mg units and feel I need a bit more to get me off the real thing.
I tried the classic tobacco and I feel like it is a bit harsh on my throat. It has helped me at least cut back on smoking, but the harshness on the back of my throat keeps me from wanting to completely switch over. Cigarettes on the other hand seem to be more harsh on the lungs although… One easy thing I wish they would change is the BRIGHT red light at the tip when you take a drag; its kind of annoying to be in a dark bar and everyone notices a bright light shining, kind of embarrassing really.
I have smoked analog cigs for nearlly 50 years, up to three packs a day. During that time I have smoked analogs only when I ran out of refills. It takes about five or six days for delivery after ordering, which is my only problem with this product. Now being able to guage my usage, I will not likely ever smoke another stinky analog again. I recommend it to any smoker who is ready to make the switch. I bought SafeCig for my 2 pack-a-day husband, who was cynical about the whole thing at first.
We started with 14mg nicotine, classic flavor and it was nice but the draw takes a little more effort. We absolutely love the 18mg, traditional flavor. I am a social smoker and tried it myself; the draw is definitely so easy with the 18mg, and there is a lot of vapor upon inhale and exhale. He has not touched a tobacco cigarette since and I was finally able to throw away all his stinky ashtrays.
A pure miracle for me! All I have to say is that i have never experienced better customer service in my life from any company. I wish all companies had the same level of standards as the Safe Cig does. For once in my life I was treated like a human being, not a dollar sign.
Thank you for the review, I am eternally grateful. Debbie Sanders, Rising Sun, Maryland. I really liked my original SafeCig and got several of my friends to switch! I was surprised to see that they had changed the design to a 2-piece rather than the 3-piece version I have. I am really happy with this product. Just wish the draw was a little easier. I guess I just want it to be exactly like a cigarette.
Anyway, so far it has served the purpose. I have not smoked a real cigarette since I got this one in the mail. Service was great, arrived in 4 days. The Safe Cig far surpasses the other. I have been trying different e cigs and have just been frustrated. I got tired of dead cartridges and messy e juice. Or cartridges that last only 6 or 7 puffs! They delivered quickly and I am happy with the product so far. Taste good, no smell they are great. Tried many times to quit but could not.
Hate the health issues, cost, smell, butts, and worse of all the addiction. I did a ton of research on the e -cigs before deciding upon the Safe Cig. Just got them today and tried them. Just like the real thing but without the horrible smell and all that goes with analog cigs. The plan is to step down the amount of nicotine until I can quit all together but without the misery!
These are a Godsend. The look, feel, vapor production and taste is amazing. Shipping was fast — 3 days and I just went online to order more refills. Glad I chose this company and thanks to all for the honest reviews. So helpful. I look forward to some time in the future being totally nicotine free, but for now I feel like I have a big part of my life back!
This is my first time trying an E-cigerette. I would have to say the flavor is a little odd. It took quite a few drags for me to acquire the taste. The customer service responded quickly, and the speed of shipment is about right. After some research, and this web-site, I ordered Safe-Cig.
It arrived on time as promised. One battery was fully charged, the other was not which is normal I assume. Some of the cartridges were easy draw, others were a little tougher for the first few puffs. Sucking on marbles low vapor and the final nail in the coffin is when they changed their Cartridge manufacturer.
Classic tasted like Vanilla and no throat hit whatsoever. I sent them emails and called they never bothered to even respond. I almost gave up but on a hunch tried Safe Cig, what a difference. The battery last a lot lot longer the cartridge lasts as promised and trust me if you do the math it is cheaper than the Blu crap. Bottom line I am glad I made a good choice. I am extremely impressed with the Safe Cig. We normally smoked Marlboro Menthols and we purchased the 18 mg strength Menthol cartridges, which is perfect.
We started on a Wednesday and had our last real cigarette on the very next day Thrusday. It just takes a little getting used to the difference in flavor from the real cig. My main reason for trying this out was to benefit my kids. Now, we are going into our 3rd week and my sense of smell is getting quite strong. I can still smell the old cigarette smoke in my car and will be taking it to get detailed as soon as the rain stops lol. Just be willing and give yourself at least a week to get used to the difference from a real cigarette.
This is my fourth try at an ecig and this is by far the best brand hands down. Most like a real cigarette. Great taste and smoke amount every draw instead of just the first couple like the others. Battery life is good and two piece is great. I recommend you give it a try, you will be pleased. I ordered cause compared to other companies the cartridges last longer than other brands. Also there is a lifetime warranty on the products other than the refill cartridges. Oh and there is free shipping on all orders!
Anyways, as of right now my only complaint is the taste, it just plainly is not what I was hoping for. I am going to give it a few more days and just see what happens and if I change my mind I will come back if allowed and let you know.
As of right now I would not suggest buying this product unless a different taste than you are used to is ok with you. I have not had any problems with the product and shipping of refills is quick. I have friends that still smoke and they are amazed when I tell them they can smoke around me and it will not bother me.
Well cigarette smoke does stink now thats for sure. Then I took it to library and was told the same thing. Each time I log times and take notes. My first experience with an e-cig are already a few years back, was a gift from vacation. What has become of it, you can imagine! After only a few days away goes my frustration for real cigarette. I go back to same library and they let me use it! Maybe they change the policy or maybe they not like other model with green light!
Whether I get along so I know at the moment yet, somehow I have united all sorts of problems described in one or two xpower, Pure frustration. However, I am currently at 17 with only 2 real cigarette since I try safe cig full time. Anyway, I love the Special Bundle Package but am wondering how long I charge a new ecig right out of the box to ensure hte longet battery life possible.
Order a kit from Green smoke and the batteries arrived defective, ordered blu cigs kit and it was absolute junk. I later found out that Blu cigs kit cost about 2 dollars to make and they buy them from some crappy manufacture in China. Almost gave up on ecigs and then I tried the safe cig…. Hands down the best Electronic Cigarette on the market. The batteries charge every time and the refills are by far the best tasting and the amount of vapor that comes out of my safe cig is insane!!
Very happy I decided to give them a try!! After careful research, I made the leap and ordered The Safe Cig starter. That was about a week ago…. Within the first 24 hrs. There are a few things that it does take some getting used to — how to draw on it for example. However, they left out the difference in weight. I was somewhat taken aback by how heavy it is compared to a tobacco one. The only thing I wish The Safe Cig would do however is address the issue of diethylene glycol.
The more the is in the news, the more it is going to be a question that should, IMHO, be tackled head-on. This was and will be my last e-cigg to try. This one is the best of the best. I tryed Blu first and safe cigg beats Blu hands down. The refills last a long time,also the battery life.
Very happy with The Safe Cig and no need to look else where. Will be a loyal cutomer. Top Draw! I hear these guys were the first people to sell e-cigs in the US and you can tell that, like most things, the originators are usually the best! It sure does. I quit smoking about 10 years ago, but I am asking this question on behalf of my wife.
I have just recently discovered the e-cig alternative to smoking and I bought my first e-cig starter kit at a local Smoker Friendly store. Their starter kit came with all the components that a usual starter kit comes with but I could tell that the refill carts that came with kit were very old compared to the refill kits that I purchased after I bought the starter kit.
They are a one piece refill cart. No separate vaporizer. So I had a baseline to compare thesafecig. Just a battery, the 18mg tobacco refills, and usb charger. Which saved me some money. They ship out of Los Angeles Ca. I can see why they have a lifetime warranty. Compared to the SF setup, the SF setup seems like a piece of junk. Definitely quality parts. The taste is better and it hits your throat way different.
Much more like smoking an actual cigarette. Their is less vapor than the SF unit, but is much more satisfying. However my hats off to thesafecig for not targeting minors with funky flavors and they have a very good product at a very good price. I think that they have gained a user for a very long time. I use Smoketip i was 25 years smoking… completely Stopped smoking tobbacco cigs in 2 days… i feel incredible, i can breathe again.. First brand i puchased was the blu cig.
I would not recommed it to any one. It worked ok for the first three days, than the draw and vapor production sucked. The blu cig has these aweful carts that u have to take the foil out with a paper clip. Plus its a three price design that i would have to clean.
Good thing i checked out the safe cig when i came accross this web site. I ordered it on a friday night i got it by thursday. The safe cig is like a smartphone the blu is like a brick phone! It only a two priece design so i dont have clean the atomizer and the carts lasts all day and than some! The batteries last about 6 hrs but i got the bundle pack so i got three batteries!
I was quite skeptical when I first started looking into e-cigs. Well, I read many reviews and decided to try Safe Cig over the other brands. The Marl flavor really does taste like a Red and I have started to quit buying so many packs of Marbs, which has saved me quite a bit of money. Little more pricey than other starter kits but worth it!
Cant say nuff good things about Safe Cigs! I've had some better tasting e-cigs, but these actually taste like a real cigarette, which I've never thought was great. The "kick" i get in my throat is the most realistic than the other two brands I tried. Moreover electronic cigarette allows to smoke a vapor that is free of carbon monoxide. Just found an article mentioning that The Safe Cig and a couple of other brands actually test their cartridges before sending them off to customers which is nice to know.
This is the 3rd e cig I have tried. I liked it, but after a week, I would get 2 puffs off it then nothing. I would start to feel a little panicked and want to light up. This week I received the safe cig, and I love it. It is more realistic, the flavor is good, and it works when I want it to work. It is very similar to smoking a real cig. I am completely satisfied using the safe cig and am confident that with it, I will never go back to smoking real cigarettes. This may have saved my life.
Thanks safe cig!!! Seeing how I switched and have been using the SafeCig personally now for nearly a month, I too would benefit greatly from a better case. In the meantime there are OEM cases you can get that fit them as one-piece. Fill out the contact us form if you want any more details on those. I have been through 2 other e-cigs before the safe cig. My very first e-cig was Blu Cig and it really is not worth mentioning except for the fact it totaly sucked.
And my second e-cig was green smoke so I have been at the low in on cost and high end of cost. So far I am very pleased with The safe cig and plan on staying with it and so far I am 3 days traditional cig free. I will say though there classic tobaco flavor is an aquired taste thing lol but I am a camel wides smoker.
There battery life is awesome!! Hope this helps and I am glad I did not give up totaly on e-cigs before I tried The safe cig. I have been a pack-and-a-half a day smoker for over forty years. I heard about e-cigs about a month ago. I tried another brand and was really disappointed. Not much taste, not much smoke vapor, and a very expensive free trial.
Then I was told about Safe Cig. Although skeptical, I bought the starter kit. This is about as close to smoking as you can get. The menthol tastes like menthol, and the amount of smoke vapor is close to a real cigarette. I have been smoking Safe Cigs for a few weeks and have not smoked any real cigarettes.
I believe this is going to work. Customer service at Safe Cig is excellent. I sent them a few emails, and they responded right away. I re-ordered the cartriges and they arrived within a few days. I highly recommend this product. The Safe Cig has superior customer service and extremely fast shipping. I ordered the special bundle package and it came within 2 days!
My friends have other brands, and have tried my Safe Cig and enjoyed the flavor classic tobacco much more than the brand they are using and the feel of the unit. I will not go back to smoking a regular cigarette again. The only thing would be for the carrying case to allow you to carry the e-cig as one piece instead of having to break it down. Other than that, the Safe Cig rocks!!! I have heard that more teens are getting into e-cigs, especially since many companies have fruity flavors.
I have been trying to read up more on e-cigs and came across your review on SafeCig.
