Vaping related FAQs
Vaping (using an e-cigarette) is an alternative to smoking, which doesn’t involve the tar or combustion involved in smoking tobacco.
A vaping device contains three main components:
- The battery device. Some vaping devices have built-in batteries that are charged via USB, others have batteries which can be removed and recharged with a specialist charger.
- The clearomiser or tank (which holds the e-liquid). This is usually made of glass or plastic and holds the e-liquid, and a coil that heats up the e-liquid that sits inside it.
- The e-liquid
The battery heats up the coil inside the tank, which causes the e-liquid to turn into a vapour which is then inhaled.
The set up costs for a starter kit will vary depending on the type you chose. After that, the running costs would be for e-liquid to refill your tank, and replacement coils. Coils will usually last approximately two weeks, depending on the type, and cost just a few pounds each.We will be able to help you choose the best type of device for your needs, and guide you through choosing the best liquids to get you started.
Switching from a 20-cigarette-per-day smoking habit to vaping could save up to £3350 per year.
Yes. There is never a situation where it is better to smoke than it is to vape. According to independent studies by Public Health England and The Royal College of Physicians vaping is recognised as being at least 95 per cent less harmful than smoking. This position is also supported by The Royal College of General Practitioners and many other independent medical and public health bodies.
Yes. Vaping is recognised by the Government as being the number one tool used by smokers to help them quit. A recent study funded by the (UK) National Institute of Health Research and Cancer Research UK, found that vaping was almost twice as effective as the ‘gold standard’ combination of NRT products in helping smokers quit.
Some people will use their electronic cigarette very regularly, taking a couple of puffs every hour, whilst others may use it in the same way as if they were smoking cigarettes. If you would normally smoke a cigarette then you can use your vape instead in the same pattern as smoking.
Our E-liquid contains: propylene glycol, glycerine, flavourings and nicotine (when specified),. What goes into e-liquids made in the UK is heavily regulated, and we only sell products of the highest quality which comply with current regulations.
There are two types of vaping - Mouth to lung (MTL) and direct lung (DL). MTL is similar to how you would smoke a cigarette whilst DL resembles smoking shisha.
All the products sold on the Dr. Vapes website are 100% authentic. If your E-liquid bottle has a scratch and check label on it, it can be checked here.
For hardware, most brands that we distribute also have a scratch-off verification code (sometimes called "Scratch & Verify") which you can use to verify that products from our website are genuine. It's not a legal requirement, therefore not all products have the code.
If the coil is over saturated the excess e-liquid within the atomiser may flood the tank and you could end up with droplets of liquid on your lips / in your mouth. If you get e-liquid in your mouth, it is advised to rinse your mouth out with plenty of water.
Yes, the vapour can leave a small amount of smell depending on the e-liquid and type of device. Some smells can be pleasant to you but not to others, so please take this into consideration if you are using the electronic cigarette in confined spaces.
