Along with sub-ohm atomizers and high wattage devices,┬áTemperature Control is one of the hottest (pardon the pun) new vaping technologies this year. ┬áBut,┬áif controlling the wattage sent to the atomizer is controlling the heat, then why do we need temperature control? ┬áThe answer is that temperature control does a much better job of regulating the […]

Help Defeat an Anti-Vapor Politician

The upcoming election in New Mexico pits Conrad James against incumbent New Mexico State House Rep. Elizabeth ÔÇťLizÔÇŁ Thomson. ┬á“Why does it matter to me,” you may ask? ┬áBecause Liz Thompson has demonstrated that she will not let facts get in the way of┬áintroducing bills to tax e-cigarettes, restrict flavors, ban usage, and classify devices […]

“I continue to think that there are ample good reasons to treat e-cigs as a class of products that are much less dangerous to health than are cigarettes and that smokers should be encouraged to use them instead of cigarettes as soon as possible.” ┬áThat’s not me talking, it’s┬áLynn T.
