Electronic cigarettes: Still not good for you but puts two fingers up to the smoking ban

Smoker_smoker_Gamucci.jpgRemember the good ole' days when you could just pull out a fag and smoke where-ever you damn well pleased? God I *really* miss those days (can you tell I'm a smoker)!! If you haven't heard about them already, there are two smoking devices currently out, that not only allow you to smoke indoors, but won't kill you as quickly coz they only have ten per cent nicotine in them and no tobacco. I'm talking about the Super Smoker and the Gamucci electronic cigarettes.

They look like ciggarettes, they even smoke like one and light up at the end when you take a drag. But they're not actually cigarettes. So you're essentially smoking without actually smoking (in the traditional sense). See over the jump to find out more.

Both electronic cigarettes are basically the same with only a few minor differences. For example, they both use the same mechanism to operate. The smoke coming out of the e-cigarettes is just vapour created by micro-electronic technology and they're both rechargable.

The Super SuperSchmoker (that's how the Super Smoker rep pronounced it) is available in various concentrations of nicotine, and even a zero nictone version (I guess for people who want to give up or look cool?). The Gamucci is available with five high-strength, tobacco flavoured cartridges. The cartridge is the bit you change when you've puffed the equivalent of 20 fags (Gammucci) or six hours (Super Smoker).

Contrary to what a lot of people have said they don't taste like cigarettes. However when you're cooped up indoors or don't want to be unsociable and smoke outside, they'll definitely do the trick. I'm just a bit concerned about public awareness. *A lot* of non-smokers will be completely oblivious to this break-through in smoking, so I can predict getting a lot of hassle for puffing away inside a public building. That's partly why I haven't smoked mine anywhere else apart from my desk and my house. I can't be arsed with the confrontation!

If you want to see it in action, check out Zara sampling the Super Smoker for herself. It really is *must-see* TV.

  • I think this is the right time to quit tobacco smoking and to choose e cigarette. As per my knowledge many researches have done on e cigarette and all researches have only one conclusion that e cigarette is safe for health and do not posses any health problems.

  • You know you should be really careful of what c-ecigs to buy. some of them tastes really nasty.

    Well maybe that's the reason why many people categorize ecigarettes as a harm reduction rather than an aid. But considering the topic that goes by cigar smoking, I think e-cigs are in the right track. I mean personally, I realized that nothing has ever come close to imitating smoking than this.

  • Disappointed

    Hasn't ANYONE been disappointed? I am not a smoker myself, but I bought electronic cigs for two of my smoker friends, thought I was doing them a favor, but BOTH said they were extremely disappointed, didn't think they were remotely similar to a real cig, couldn't stand them, etc. and NEITHER is using electronic cigs THAT I BOUGHT THEM today. I have NOT seen a similar post.

  • Electronic cigarette is a tobacco free product and it is look like real cigarette. With e-cigarette, you can also gets E Cigarette kits. Atomizer,batteries,different flavors of e-liquid etc.. are in the e cigarette kits. Electronic cigarette is realy wonderful product for regular smokers and it is reduce the monthly cost.
