Were you aware that the electronic cigarette was invented back in the 1960′s? Yep, I’m just as shocked. I had no idea it was that long ago. It really didn’t take off until just a decade ago— I’m guessing that was due to the influx of health risks and banning of nicotine cigarettes in public places.
I, myself am not a smoker (though I did back in the 80′s) but my daughter Gina is. Yes, she knows how I feel about it and wants to quit but as we all know, habits can be hard to break. I’m all for her quitting but until then she was in search of a better alternative. One of the main reasons is because hubby and I grew tired of smelling the awful aroma of cigarettes coming from our garage (where she sits to smoke during the colder months).
We don’t allow smoking in our home. I honestly detest the smell— it gives me an instant headache and causes my nose to get stuffy and irritates my eyes. Blah! Plus, we disliked finding an ashtray overflowing with cigarette butts in the garage. ICK!
Lucky for Gina, her search for a healthier alternative was over when out of the blue, NuvoCig contacted me about reviewing their products. I can’t honestly say that the idea of Gina using vapor e-cigarettes puts me at ease (since the medical field is still unsure about their health risks) but because they contain less chemical additives (toxins), and eliminate secondhand smoke and ashes, not to mention stinky leftover butts, I am more for that than their counterparts.
The NuvoCig e-cig uses electronic cigarette cartomizers that contain a liquid that turns into an odorless vapor when smoked. This act is also called “vaping”. One of the benefits of e-cigarettes is that they’re virtually smoke-free. With traditional tobacco cigarettes everyone around them breathes in health-damaging smoke which is associated with asthma, emphysema, upper respiratory infections and other health problems. With NuvoCig’s e-cig, the only one “smoking” is the person who’s “vaping”. That’s a huge plus!
NuvoCig offers a wide variety of e-cig kits, cartomizers and accessories for beginners and those who are experienced. Not to mention for anyone who enjoys a smoke or someone who wants to quit altogether. The advantage of using an e-cig is that you have the option of gradually tapering down from high nicotine to low— eventually reaching zero. You can’t do that with traditional tobacco cigarettes!
For Gina’s review, she received a Deluxe E-Cig Kit Plus ($77.99) customized to her taste.
Each kit contains:
HOW MANY TRADITIONAL CIGARETTES IS THIS EQUAL TO? 10 cartomizers equal out to 20 boxes of traditional tobacco cigarettes. Wow!
1.) NuvoCig E-Cig 2.) LED end
3.) Battery charger/ Cartomizer 4.) Cartomizer 5.) NuvoCig Deluxe Kit Plus
I was shocked to find NuvoCig offers 35 different flavors including Apple, Watermelon, Mango, Spearmint, Blueberry, Atomic Fireball and many more, including traditional tobacco flavor. You’re sure to find at least one you enjoy!
Cartomizers can be purchased separately in convenient multi-packs so you can get a taste of each flavor, if you wish.
Using a NuvoCig e-cigarette is really simple, first you remove a cartomizer from it’s packaging, attach it to the Nuvo standard battery (the end of the “cigarette”) and it’s ready for vaping. To vape, you put the cartomizer end of the e-cigarette in your mouth and inhale— simulating the act of smoking. Then exhale, blowing out.
The e-cigarette does not put off a smoke from the tip (LED “ash” area) like a traditional cigarette and you don’t smell any odors. But it does light up, letting you know that the product is being activated. If the indicator light flashes 10 times simultaneously, it’s time to recharge.
Since Gina started using her new NuvoCig e-cigarette kit we have not been able to smell when she’s “smoking”. I really LOVE that! And because there are no “leftovers”, we’re not finding butts, ashes or even bits of nicotine anywhere. The e-cig is much more sanitary, not to mention convenient for her to use.
I really like that we’re not exposed to the toxins and stench that traditional cigarettes contain and Gina likes that she can smoke more freely out in public. Her favorite flavor so far? It’s the spearmint.
