My New Favorite Menthol Electronic Cigarette

I give the Smoketip Menthol E-cig a solid, “A.”
Here are the most important criteria I used to evaluate this menthol smokeless cigarette.

Flavor: robust, but most importantly, this e-cig actually tastes like a traditional menthol cigarette. I thought all menthol e-cigs would come close, but I was dead wrong. Alot of the e-cigs out there have a tin or metal taste which is annoying.  Smoketip gets a solid “A” here for true-to-life flavor.

Great Alternative To:

  • Newport
  • Kool
  • Marlboro
  • other menthol brands.

Aftertaste: Wait, didn’t we just evaluate flavor and taste? well aftertaste means the flavor that is in your mouth after you exhale a drag. The Smoketip Menthol Ecigarette, has very little noticeable aftertaste but there is a pleasant and subtle menthol flavor present.

My experiences with a new flavor technology

In the past, I had tried on several occasions to quit smoking for a number of different reasons. The first, and most important one, was related to health concerns. But it really went far beyond that. I was talking to a friend of mine who told me that he was doing his best to get rid of his cigarette habit since he and his wife just had a new baby. That made a lot of sense. You certainly don’t want to expose your new baby to the toxic stuff that you’ll find in cigarette smoke. In my case, my wife and I don’t have any infants in the house, but that really doesn’t matter at this point.

Seriously, it’s enough that I have a family to look after. I don’t want my teenage kids or my wife to be at risk just because I had developed a cigarette habit over the years. But, after discussing the details of this dilemma with my buddy, I realized that going through the process of quitting might just be something that I was unable to do. This was when I stumbled onto a great solution to the problem. Are you trying to get past a smoking habit, yourself? Then read on and see what I came up with.

It pretty much all started when I hit the Internet and began looking for a solution to this issue. When I found out what I needed to know, I made sure to share this info with my friend. And let me tell you, he was glad to try it out and get away from the super tough effort of trying to “white knuckle” it with the cigs.  The answer was so simple, that I couldn’t believe that I hadn’t run into it before! That answer was in a cigarette-sized device that I could take just about anywhere.

It’s called an e-cig and it does away with the toxic smoke of a “regular” cigarette. But it’s got the nicotine that you need. No kidding. Instead of smoke, you get a water vapor mist without the bad stuff that makes up your old cigarette smoke. You can use them just about anywhere. My favorite places are in restaurants (after a good meal) and (this is a riot), in front of no smoking signs. My bud laughed out loud when I told him that. Now he can also satisfy his cigarette habit without putting his family, and others, at risk.

Do You Know Your E-Cig Recharging Options?

One of the major advantages with ecigs is the fact that you can recharge an ecig battery in more than one way. This means that the portability factor of an ecig is quite significant and thus you can take them just about anywhere you need to go! Let’s take a look at some of these options, shall we? The first thing that you should know is that when you purchase an ecig kit, you will get the connections to have these ecig recharging options. This is why I suggest that you get the whole ecig kit when buying an ecig for the very first time.

The first (and most obvious way) way to recharge an ecig is connecting the ecig battery to a wall socket. This will recharge the battery in the amount of time that is specified with your ecig instructions and the amount of time will depend on the battery type. But the time that it takes is not all that long. The only disadvantage is that you usually don’t have a wall socket everywhere that you go. This is especially true if you travel by car or truck. So you can use one of the other charging options we will point out here.

One of my favorite ways to recharge my ecig is by using the USB port on my laptop. Recharging ecigs with a USB port is ultra convenient, since I use my laptop (I’m in sales) just about everywhere that I go. This includes hanging out at the airport, waiting for my flight or sitting in a hotel lobby, waiting for my check-in time. You see, I have more than one ecig battery and I can use my laptop to charge one ecig battery while using the other one. You can’t beat that for convenience.

The final method that I like to use when charging my ecig battery is right in my own car. When I’m on the road, either in my own car or a rental vehicle, I can recharge my ecig battery by using the adapter that fits into my electric cigarette lighter – right in the car that I’m driving. This way, I can recharge my battery without running my laptop’s charge down. So, while I’m on my way to my next appointment, I can recharge the battery and give my laptop a rest. As you can see, eigs represent the epitome of potability and convenience.

Have You Found the Perfect Smoking Substitute?

I know this may seem to be a bit odd, but I recently found the perfect smoking substitute available today! And, no, it’s not a patch, pills or a box of chocolates. It even looks like a standard cigarette. The only thing is that when you see me “smoking” and you stand next to me – you’ll notice something a bit strange. You won’t smell any cigarette smoke! That’s right. That’s because my “cigs” only give off a bit of water vapor in the form of a smoky mist. And the mist that you inhale contains all the nicotine that your body craves.

So, how is all of this possible? The mechanics of all of this are relatively simple. You have an item that looks like a standard cigarette. Add to that a small ecig battery and a bit of “ecig juice” that not only contains your selected flavor (from chocolate to menthol – my favorite is menthol), but contains a bit of nicotine. This adds up to a satisfying experience that won’t pollute the air around you with second hand smoke. This means that the folks around you (who don’t smoke) won’t be put off by the smell or be adverse to any harmful toxins that you give off.

You might think that this type of technology would be expensive and hard to come by. But, in essence, this new form of “smoking” is relatively cheap and is very easy to come by an order. I do my ordering online and I have my supplies delivered directly to my home. This saves me the trouble of having to drive to the store to get the supplies that I need in order to get my ecig juice and other items that I need. This, to me, is the ultimate convenience when it comes to enjoying my smoke breaks.

So, in the long run, I’ve discovered a new cigarette smoking method that has provided me with a way to have my own private smoking haven. Away from all the worries of the day. And the best part is that it’s my own space and it doesn’t intrude on anyone’s space and doesn’t compromise anyone’s health. This is pretty much all that I can ask for. Especially considering the fact that we’re looking at a very reasonable price and super portability. If you’re looking for the same thing – all you have to do is look ecigs online!

How Can You Get Your Cigarette Freedom Back?

In this day and age, a lot of people are wondering; “How  can I get my smoking freedom back?” And that makes sense, since, at one time, you could smoke just about anywhere. I used to love having a good meal in a restaurant and then lighting up a cigarette. Try that these days! The same holds true in my workplace. I have worked for my company for over 30 years, and at one time I could relax with a cigarette at any time. Now, I have to go all the way outside to a designated smoking area to have a smoke.

I just assumed that smoking bans would just go on forever and take away the freedom that I once had to smoke. Well, part of that is true. Smoking bans will go on forever. But what’s not true is the part about my lack of freedom. That’s because a friend of mine tipped me off about a way to address my nicotine cravings and not have to go searching for a designated smoking area – sometimes in the dead of winter, out in the cold! I all hinges around with a technological breakthrough that gives me the nicotine that I want, without having to “light up”.

It all starts with a small cigarette-like item that I can take with me wherever I go. All I have to do is to charge the battery and keep the “juice” reservoir filled with my favorite menthol flavor liquid. That flavored juice also contains the nicotine that I crave several times a day.The battery turns the juice into a flavorful vapor that I can inhale, just like my old cigarette smoke.But here’s the thing – I don’t breathe out harmful second hand smoke that others near me had to put up with in the past.

This means that I can enjoy my cig breaks just about anywhere. I’m no longer out in the cold in winter time or standing out in the heat, in the summer. Best of all, with the price of standard cigarettes going up, I’m saving a lot of money. This is one of the best inventions that I have ever come across. I’m now more productive at work and more relaxed at home. I’m also not harming the health of anyone around me and I suspect that I’m doing something beneficial for my own health as well. If you’re a smoker, you may want to try e-cigs too.

How to Avoid Smoking Bans

As time went on, it seemed that the locations where I could enjoy a cool smoke were getting less and less. Now, don’t misunderstand me, I understood the reasons for this and I couldn’t disagree with them. But even so, it was making my life a bit more stressful when I couldn’t just light up whenever I wanted to, or had the chance.I thought that this was going to be the story of the rest of my life, until a friend of mine offered an interesting solution. i had to admit, I was skeptical, at first. But i really wanted to avoid smoking bans.

It appeared that my friend’s secret to being able to smoke when he wanted to was to not really “smoke” at all. He had decided to try electronic cigarettes and see if they could help him out. Sure enough, they did! When he told he that he could now “smoke” in his own home, without disturbing his family, he immediately had my attention. It seems that he could relax and get the nicotine that he craved without giving off harmful second hand smoke for his children to inhale. This was something that I was certainly going to check out.

The first thing that I did was to look up ecig information on the Internet, so I would know what this was all about. As it turns out, instead of a potentially toxic smoke, the ecig gives off a controlled puff of water vapor. The water vapor not only contains the nicotine that a smoker’s body craves, but it also contains a selected flavor, as well. You can get any flavor that you want from chocolate to menthol (menthol being my favorite). The only thing that you need to remember is to keep the battery charged and you can smoke just about anywhere.

The best thing about keeping a charged battery is that, with ecigs, it’s an easy thing to do. There are are different options that you can use for charging your new ecig battery. You can, of course, plug it into the wall, but that might not always be convenient. So, you’ll also have the option of using your car cigarette lighter charger. Ironic, to say the least. But my favorite option has to do with my laptop and my home computer. You see, I also have a neat adapter that fits the USB ports on my computers!

What’s the Best Way to Keep Ecigs Charged?

Several of my friends has been asking me about my ecigs, lately. They can appreciate the convenience of not having to light up a standard cigarette in places where that might not be the best thing to do. For example, at family gatherings, some of my friends have reported that parents are not always fond of having their children exposed to cigarette smoke – which I can understand. But some of the questions revolve around the mechanics of keeping an ecig charged. This was something that I had to think about, since I don’t use every charging method, myself – but I wanted to help out my friends, so I looked up the appropriate information.

First of all, it’s important to remember that there are several options that are available when it comes to charging an electronic cigarette. When I working in sales, and I found myself driving on the road for extended periods of time, I discovered that the most convenient way of charging an ecig was right in my own car!  I had an ecig charger that plugged right into my car lighter and I used that to keep my ecig batteries charged. That way, I didn’t have to worry about finding an electric outlet.

But not everyone finds themselves out on the open road as part of their job. So the question remains – what’s the best way to keep an ecig charged? Well, in some cases, an ecig user my find that they spend a lot of time working on their laptop in various locations. I have a couple of friends that find themselves either at the airport or in a hotel room while plugging away at a document on their laptops. Well, this is another opportunity to enjoy the taste of their cig substitutes and to keep them charged, as well. This can be done through the use of a usb charger that connects to their laptops!

But, in the long run, I always remember to keep an extra battery charged, just in case. My charger just plugs into the wall and I charge the batteries at night, while I’m asleep. This way, I always have a charged battery handy so I don’t really have to worry much about charging batteries in remote locations. But for those who don’t have the luxury of owning multiple batteries, there are always different charging options available. This will allow folks to have their smokeless cigarette breaks just about anywhere.

My Portable Flavor Breaks

One of the biggest hassles associate with my ecig breaks was keeping the ecigs charged on a regular basis. The reason for this had to do with the fact that my ecigs only came with a charger that was designed to plug into the wall and, needless to say, you don’t always find yourself near a wall outlet. This was especially true, since my job involved a lot of travel around the country. Of course, when hanging out in a hotel or motel room, there were plenty of outlets. But this wasn’t the case when driving to my client appointments.

Now, I eventually purchased a portable charger, but that didn’t always help, since I couldn’t carry it around with me all the time. But then a friend suggested something that solved my problem rather nicely. You see,even though I couldn’t carry my original portable charger around with me everywhere I went, I DID carry my laptop (which I needed for business). This is where the solution to my woes came in. I logged onto the website that sold ecigs and looked up an inexpensive charge that could charge my ecigs from the USB ports on my laptop! Now THAT was convenient!

I can now charge up my favorite menthol ecigs right from my laptop even if I am in the middle of a meeting or in the middle of a lecture. This then allowed me to enjoy a menthol e-cigarette break when the time was right. I was then able to focus a lot better and assimilate the information that was being disseminated a lot better, thus enhancing my overall performance. This was something that was noticed by my manager, which I was looking for as well as increase the results of my performance, sales and  business employee training lectures.

These portable flavor breaks were facilitated by my new portable ecig charger and my entire viewpoint became more laid back and focused, which was something that the other employees also eventually noticed and began asking me about. Eventually, they started to emulate me and put away their old regular cigarettes in favor of the more convenient ecigs. They also started getting ecig gifts from friends and loved ones, which was something that I don’t think they expected – but was very welcome, indeed. The began to breathe easier and the entire company benefited as a result of my example. Because of this level of leadership, I was eventually promoted!

I Have My Breaks Back!

I can’t tell you how happy I am now that I can have my nicotine cravings at work once again. I had to actually give up on my work breaks at one point. This just put a lot of extra stress on my job and everyone could feel the effects of the changes in my moods. This was not pleasant to say the least. Especially since I’m one of the supervisors! Well, that’s all a thing of the past, now. A co-worker of mine introduced me to something called an ecig. That made all the difference in the world, let me tell you!

First of all, during my regular cigarette breaks, I don’t have to consider going way outside to some remote area of the parking lot that I could never make it back in time. This is not the way to enjoy a relaxing break – trust me. So I just had to make another arrangement. In this case, it meant giving up my breaks altogether. This was a horrible solution that had begun to wear on me from the very beginning in ways that were showing up more and more each day. My mood had just gotten worse and no one liked that – seriously.

But that didn’t help at all. All that did was to make me even more tired and this was beginning to show up in my work performance. I couldn’t assist  my  subordinates like I used for and this just added to my frustration. I was beginning to take it out on them, as well, by by adding more work to their already busy schedule. This did nothing to add to my popularity. Something had to be done quickly. Well, the ecig turned out to be the answer to all of these problems. An ecig gives off no smoke! Just water vapor with the flavor and nicotine that a smoker needs.

Now, I can take my “smoke” break in my cubicle with the permission of the company CEO. Everything has since improved from my mood to my job performance. Trust me when I say that everyone can appreciate the “new me”. I can be more helpful with a sense of humor. This is the one thing that I had lost (my sense of humor). Now I have it back and all with the help of a small electronic device that has changed my life for the good!

I Found Portable Flavor and Relaxation

When it comes to relaxation on a cig break, the one thing that I don’t want is for someone to interfere with the way and location regarding that break. That just take all the fun out getting away from it all. Let’s face it, cool relaxing menthol flavor on a break is really the reward every smoker seeks. There just is no compromise and finding myself huddled outside in the cold is no way to enjoy a break from work (unless you’re in the military out on maneuvers in the Arctic). You should be able to pick the most relaxing spot for your breaks. At least, that’s what I think.

Fortunately, others have felt the same way and have devised a plan to deal with this situation. Their solution to all of this comes in the form of a cigarette substitute that benefits from rechargeable portability and truly satisfying flavor.That’s right, I’m referring to the new electronic cigarettes that are beginning to pop up everywhere. You see then in the most unlikely places, since most folk are not used to seeing people “smoking” in many buildings, these days. But here’s the thing, those people that you see are not really “smoking”.

What they’re actually doing is inhaling and exhaling nicotine infused water vapor. This gives all the satisfaction of traditional smoking but without the negative qualities. Those negative qualities include things such as messy ashes to be disposed of along with spent matches and empty lighter. But it goes far beyond that. You see, the smoke that a smoker exhales is loaded with toxic qualities that non-smokers don’t want to inhale. And who can blame them? It’s been noted that cigarette smoke can cause cancer. Is that something that you think parents want their children to inhale? Because of this, smoking has been limited to certain remote locations.

These locations tend to be somewhat secluded and as a result, not very “relaxing”. You get the feel of being ostracized and shunned by general society. That would be fine if the smoking areas were on some gorgeous beach looking at the setting sun. But that’s not the case. It’s more like huddled in the back of a building. But ecigs have changed all that with their rechargeable portability and their satisfying flavor. These days, I can relax just about anywhere and not have to worry about polluting the air around me and offending any non-smokers in the area. It’s really the perfect solution.

I Can Breathe Easier These Days

Not too long ago, having a so-called relaxing cigarette moment meant that I was sitting outside somewhere, either by myself or with some other cast out unfortunates. Seriously, that’s about the size of it. Times have changed and many parts of society no longer tolerate being around us  smokers. A far cry from the Rod Serling and “I Love Lucy” days when practically every adult had a cig dangling from their mouth. Or so it seemed. Back then, it was a cool thing to do and it made you looked sophisticated. It even controlled your appetite, to boot. Now, it just “controls” your social interactions.

I tried not to be bitter about that. After all, it’s not a good thing to expect others to be inhaling your smoke. Especially when we now know how dangerous it can be. I certainly don’t want my kids to be exposed to the carcinogenic chimney that my mouth occasionally becomes. The promise of my cool refreshing taste is no match for my children’s cleaner air. On top of that, I’ve noticed that I have a bit of trouble getting up the stairs without being out of breath. Also, I doubt that I could run and catch a bus, either.

Well, I’m happy to say that those unfortunate scenarios are in the past, now. You might ask how I managed to make things that much better. Well, it was a lot easier than you might imagine. And, believe it or not, I didn’t even have to give up that unique menthol flavor that I had enjoyed for so many years! It’s just that now I cleaner air that’s surrounding me and I can breathe easier. I accomplished all of this by switching over to a simple electronic cigarette substitute that is known as an e-cigarette (or “ecig” for short).

This simple device may look like a regular cigarette, but it’s really much more than that. Instead of inhaling toxic smoke, I get a cool whiff of water vapor that contains all of the nicotine that I crave. The benefits are many. First of all, I can smoke in my office at work – no more designated smokers areas. I can enjoy my ecig in my home without subjecting the rest of my family to cigarette smoke. But the really great part is that I feel a lot better and I can make it up the stairs without being out of breath.
