DuraSmoke electronic cigarettes are the newest, best innovation in smokeless cigarettes and are fast becoming the first choice for people who want the most realistic experience with a smoking alternative. Distributed in the USA, DuraSmoke offers consumers the quality assurance of a brand name product, backed by the high standards of an American company.
An electronic cigarette is a smoking alternative that produces no ash, tar or smoke. It functions by atomizing flavored liquid (called eLiquid) that is infused with nicotine, into a vapor. This vapor dissolves in the air almost immediately upon exhalation, leaving behind no smell or particles.
Electronic cigarettes are not smoking cessation devices, nor are they regulated by the FDA (see below).
Many retail electronic cigarettes are a “one and done” type of purchase, meaning that when the flavoring runs out you simply throw them away and buy another. DuraSmoke electronic cigarettes are a one-time purchase that is refilled by buying five-packs of Dura cartomizers when vapor production or flavor becomes weak. DuraSmoke offers consumers the convenience of a product that they can use over and over again, saving you money and the frustration.
Because of DuraSmoke rechargeable batteries, the only cost to consumers after their initial purchase is the tobacco or menthol flavored Dura Refill Packs. Instead of paying high prices for an entirely new unit, DuraSmoke customers can buy a five pack of Dura Refills and replace their flavors at will.
Inhaling from an electronic cigarette is just like inhaling from a traditional cigarette. If you inhale too fast or too hard, you're not going to get the results you want. Inhaling too weakly won't deliver any vapor to your lungs. For best results, draw steadily from your DuraSmoke electronic cigarette for 3-5 seconds and exhale smoothly.
Dura cartomizers are the part of an electronic cigarette that contains the eLiquid that is atomized to be inhaled. Cartomizers are screwed onto the battery and work in conjunction with it to function like a cigarette when an inhalation motion is made. A Dura Cartomizer is included with every DuraSmoke kit and can be replaced continually by buying replacement packs.
One Dura Cartomizer = One pack of cigarettes*
*Depending on how often you use your DuraSmoke eCigarette, the intensity at which you inhale and your tolerance to nicotine this measurement could vary. One Dura Cartomizer contains a minimum equivalency of one pack of traditional cigarettes, but can reach up to two packs in many cases.
The electronic cigarette industry isn't regulated by the FDA yet. However, electronic cigarettes are considered to be a “smoking alternative,” and will eventually fall into regulation as "other tobacco products" once the FDA evaluates its current regulations. Currently, there are no special taxes on the sale of eCigarettes. eCigarettes are not available to minors: you must be 18 years of age to legally purchase an eCigarette.
