Why e-Cigarettes? - e-Cig FAQs

What is an electronic cigarette and how does it work?

People are always looking for alternatives to smoking, well, we have the BEST one. The Brew City Vape e-cig or e-cigarette is a unique and trendy smoking alternative and is a great way to quit smoking. Some people refer to e-cigs as the electric cigarette. Besides being called electric cigarettes, some people call them smokeless cigarettes. Brew City Vape's e-cig will allow you to experience the realistic feeling of smoking without the smoke, tar, ash and odor that comes along with traditional cigarettes. These are 100% tobacco-free cigarettes.

E-cigarettes are smokeless cigarettes, they do not produce smoke because they do not burn like traditional cigarettes, they only produce vapor which looks like real smoke. Our batteries are premium lithium ion rechargeable batteries and they power the electric circuit that heats up the nicotine. The nicotine liquid is atomized into a steam-like vapor that feels, looks and satisfies like smoke, but is free of smoke, tar, ash, carbon monoxide and odor! The whole process simulates the look and feel of smoking. An e-cig concentrates on fulfilling the smokers need for nicotine, while eliminating all of the harmful chemicals and the health issues that come along with tobacco inhalation. E-cigarettes are the next revolutionary step to quitting smoking and unlike traditional quitting methods - you will get the comfort of holding a cig and smoking it, satisfying the hand-to-mouth fixation that many of us have a hard time giving up.

How do you know when you need to charge your e-cig?

The light will begin to flash when the battery is running low and needs to be recharged. The light may also flash if you are taking a really long drag, but in that case, the battery does not need to be charged, that is only caused by the way you are vaping. That is a safety mechanism in our battery to keep your e-cig from overheating. A sure-fire way to know if your e-cig needs to be charged is when you no longer get any vapor off of your e-cig and you have a flashing light.

Who can use a Brew City Vape e-cig?

Brew City Vape's e-cig products are intended for use by people of legal smoking age. E-cigs should not be used by anyone under the age of 18, pregnant or breast-feeding women, people with heart conditions, high blood pressure, diabetes or people taking medication for asthma or depression. Consult your physician before using any nicotine products.

Where can I use my Brew City Vape e-cigarette?

You can use electronic cigarettes in most places where traditional cigarettes are banned. Certain privately owned companies may have their own policies on e-cigs. Electronic cigarettes don't burn and don't give off smoke or ash; they do give off vapor which may look like smoke to people. We found that by letting a business owner or employee know (mostly in restaurants) that they are electronic and not real, we have had no issues vaping in public places thus far. U.S. commercial airlines do not allow the use of electronic cigarettes, but so far, that is the only place that we know of where you cannot smoke your e-cig.

How do I use my Brew City Vape e-cig?

We recommend that you read your User's Manual fully prior to use. You have to vape an e-cig differently than smoking a traditional cigarette. You have to take slower drags, to allow the atomizer to heat up and produce the vapor. You may hear air flow or whistling as you draw off of the e-cig, this is normal and should go away as you break in your cig and learn to vape correctly. If you draw too fast, all you are doing is sucking air through the cartomizer, and it will not have time to heat up. If you are taking slower drags, you should hear less air or whistling. The atomizer uses the direct air flow through the e- cigarette and the power supply to heat the contents of the nicotine cartridge, which in turn causes the nicotine and propylene glycol/vegetable glycerine to vaporize. You are then able to inhale the nicotine through the mouthpiece. Completely chemical free, odorless vapor is produced.

Are all electronic cigarettes the same?

No, we have found they are not even close to the same. Through all of our product testing many of the e-cigarettes are weak, do not produce much vapor and the batteries die quickly. We offer a premium rechargeable lithium battery to make your vaping experience more enjoyable. Also, many brands out there do not have re-fillable cartomizers/cartridges. Our cartomizers are 100% refillable with e-liquid or e-juice. Therefore, you can make one cartomizer last about as long as one carton of traditional cigarettes. This is a huge money saver! We highly recommend buying our premium e-juice to make your cartomizers last longer. Typically, you can fill a cartomizer up to approximately 15 times. After months of product testing and sampling, we truly feel that Brew City Vape is the best e-cigarette on the market. We offer a premium e-cig at a great price. And, we have EXCELLENT customer service to boot!

What is a cartomizer or cartridge?

A cartomizer is a disposable device that consists of an atomizer and cartridge all in one piece that connects to the e-cig battery. Cartomizers are often called cartridges by people-they refer to them as flavor cartridges or blank cartridges. Brew City Vape cartomizers far surpass most in quality - they hold a good amount of liquid and last a long time. They are refillable, which is something that will save a lot of $. Not all companies offer refillable cartomizers, in which case you are forced to keep buying new cartomizers constantly.

Our cartomizers come in a multitude of flavors, including traditional cigarette flavors. Our e-liquids are also available in coordinating flavors for making refilling your favorite flavor a breeze. We also offer blank cartomizers for our customers who like to fill their own without any pre-filled flavoring already present.

What flavor is most similar to my brand?

With our standard starter kit, we include a variety 6-pack of cartomizers with different flavors. We recommend trying all the flavors before choosing your e-liquid. We offer a wide-range of flavors, including traditional cigarette flavors.

What strength should I buy?

Brew City Vape cartomizers and liquids are available in 2 strengths. The comparison below gives you a guide for choosing the right strength. Certain flavors we carry are only offered in medium strength.

18 Full Strength = Unfiltered
11 Medium Strength = Full Flavored

We offer blank cartomizers or pre-filled.

The higher the nicotine content, the stronger the vapor taste and feel.

How long does one flavor cartridge last?

One Brew City Vape pre-filled cartridge is comparable to about 1 pack of tobacco cigarettes. How long a cartridge lasts depends on your smoking style. You will know when a cartomizer needs to be replaced when the vapor diminishes and begins to taste slightly burnt in flavor. Simply screw off the old cartridge and replace it with a fresh one. We recommend not letting your cartomizer get too dry, if you are diligent in filling it, it will last a lot longer and in turn save you more money. We offer flavored and blank cartomizers.

How do I use e-liquid?

The liquid that contains the flavor, nicotine and propylene glycol (PG) /vegetable glycerin (VG) which makes the vapor... is called e-liquid. It is also referred to as e-juice or just juice. E-liquid can be used to refill cartomizers and is ideal for people who use e-cigs frequently. It also saves you money by allowing you to refill your cartomizers up to approximately 15 times, which allows one cartomizer to last approximately as long as one whole carton of regular cigs. When you start to lose vapor or the flavor is lessening, it is always a good idea to fill your cartomizer. If you get a burnt taste, your cartomizer should be thrown out... we recommend not letting it get that dry. You can tell how dry it is by the amount of vapor you are getting, you can also pop the tip off and look at the filling inside to see how dry it looks. When you have been filling your cartomizer for some time, and notice that the liquid is dripping out of the bottom when you are refilling it, you need to throw it out, it is no longer able to hold the liquid. Liquid dripping out of the cartomizer can cause you to burn out your battery. NEVER fill your cartomizer while it is still on the battery - always unscrew it from the battery and fill it. We can walk you through filling the cartomizer if you need further help.

How long does a battery last?

Depending on how much you puff on your e-cig it should last anywhere from 3-6 hours before it needs a charge. Brew City Vape's starter kits come with 2 batteries, so you can always have one charging while puffing on the other.

Do I need to charge the battery the first time?

The batteries come almost fully charged, but we do recommend charging before your first use.

Why do you sell automatic and not manual batteries?

Since Brew City Vape is a new company, we only offer a limited supply for now. As we grow, we will be testing many more products to carry. It has been our experience, that more problems can arise with the manual batteries, so for now, we will only be offering automatic.

How do I know my battery is charging?

When the battery on your e-cig gets low, you will lose some vaping power, when the battery is dead, the lighted tip will flash. Place it on the charger. The lighted end of your e-cig will glow when charging and turn off when charging is complete.

What flavors can I get?

Brew City Vape offers 8 flavors in pre-filled cartridges/cartomizers all in different colors. The flavors, strengths and colors of the cartomizers are listed below. We also carry all of the coordinating e-cig juice flavors:

How should I store my cartomizers and liquids?

Cartomizers should be stored in a cool, dry place. We do not recommend putting them in the refrigerator. We just keep ours in a shoe box in our cupboard. Keep them out of the reach of children.

What are the benefits of electronic cigarettes?

Electronic cigarettes are a wonderful smoking alternative. They are tar-free, ash-free smoke-free and odor-free. No longer will you have to worry about "smoker's" breath and a smell on your clothes. Electronic cigarettes are significantly cheaper than regular tobacco cigarettes; they will help you save a lot of money! In addition, they do not pollute the environment with ash and butts and have no fire risk. Since there is no smoke with e-cigs, you can eliminate the second-hand smoke that may be affecting your loved ones. Because of that, you can vape almost anywhere. And, a bonus - you can now get lower insurance rates - you are no longer considered a tobacco user.

What are the laws about e-cigarettes?

Electronic cigarettes are legal in the United States and most countries throughout the world. Some counties and/or states have laws banning e-cig usage in public areas, just like cigarettes. We suggest that you familiarize yourself with the laws in your area.

Where to buy e-cigarettes?

Electronic cigarettes are sold at some gas stations and select stores, however, the quality is often times not there for the money.
