More Evidence on Youth E-cigarette Use

Friday, 20th April 2018

Would you look at us. We’re all about the ongoing series (serieses?). This is a follow-up on a post from a few weeks ago where we questioned whether e-cigarettes are encouraging kids to smoke, which was, itself, a follow-up to two other myths busted. Or semi-busted. In the intervening time, a bit more evidence has […]

The 2018 VApril Challenge

Friday, 06th April 2018

Well it’s April already. It feels like only yesterday we were writing our post about your vaping new year’s resolution, and here we are, a third of the way through the year already. If you’re feeling like your resolution is flagging and you’re drifting back towards tobacco, maybe it’s time to get involved with VApril. […]

Vaping Studies and the Value of Good News

Tuesday, 03rd April 2018

Late last week, the Daily Mail, not known for being particularly friendly to the e-cigarette industry (and a dubious source for science in general1), published a short article, not available online, on the recent guidance update published by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE (that’s their name, not a comment on how […]

Do e-cigarettes encourage kids to smoke?

Tuesday, 27th March 2018

Welcome back to the Vapour Mythbusting Power Hour, part 3. If you haven’t read our first part, (toxic metals in vape coils???) or our second part, (formaldehyde production in eliquid???), then go do so. It’s informative and it really helps out our SEO. Today we’re going to take on the oft-cited claim that children are […]

Your vape isn’t producing formaldehyde, either

Tuesday, 20th March 2018

The claim that eliquid contains formaldehyde is about as old as vaping itself. It’s echoed by tabloids and aspiring investigative journalists looking for a big scoop about something gaining popularity in modern society. It’s echoed by a few regulators, and a couple of mothers who worry that their kids are vaping out behind the estate, […]

Your vape isn’t leaching toxic metals

Thursday, 15th March 2018

You may have read, sometime last week, about vaping coils leaching toxic metals into eliquid. It was pretty big news in certain circles, and everyone from The Sun to Mashable decided to run with the story. And why wouldn’t they? It’s an easy story to write and it’s ostensibly for the public good. It also […]

We’re starting up a new campaign we’re calling Flash Sale.

What is Nicotine Salt?

Tuesday, 20th February 2018

It’s likely that you’ve heard about nicotine salt eliquid lately. It’s exploding in popularity in the United States, and making its way to the UK, though regulation is slowing its uptake here. Most discussions of nicotine salt will focus on the fact that it’s the form of nicotine that you’ll find in tobacco, which means […]

Is Vaping Technology Going Backwards?

Tuesday, 13th February 2018

It’s clear even from a cursory glance around the vaping industry in 2018 that the choice that a quitting smoker has is more varied now than ever before. And despite controversially strong regulation in many countries, trade is thriving. And all this despite the industry only being about a decade old in the west, and […]

Vapes in Hospitals

Wednesday, 07th February 2018

The government's public health body, Public Health England (PHE), has just released their latest review of the e-cigarettes and heated tobacco industry, and it paints an ugly picture for tobacco use in the UK. Let's start at the beginning. The good news: a little over ten years ago, almost one out of every four adults […]

How’s the New Year’s Resolution Going?

Monday, 15th January 2018

Well, it's been two weeks since the New Year came around and we all laid out our resolutions and hopes for the new year. Maybe it'll have been three weeks by the time this post gets published. How's 2018 going for you so far? If you decided to quit smoking in the new year, maybe […]

A Primer on Shortfills

Monday, 11th December 2017

It's no secret that the dictionary of vaping is full of terms you find almost nowhere else—PG/VG, coils and sub-ohming, mods and nicshots. But one word you're going to start hearing a lot more of—if you haven't yet—is shortfill. What is a shortfill? Have you seen those big bottles of 0mg eliquid on the shelf? […]

Is ‘Smokeless Tobacco’ the same as ‘Vaping’?

Wednesday, 15th November 2017

You may have seen the Daily Mail’s recent coverage of a study claiming that smokeless tobacco products are just as bad for the heart as cigarettes are. The study is absolutely right. But vaping—inhaling (nicotine-optional) vaporised liquids—contains no tobacco at all. So is vaping as bad as cigarettes? Let’s skip the hassle: NO. Vaping is […]

Cigarettes: a pain in the butt for the environment.

Wednesday, 18th October 2017

Environmental organisation Keep Britain Tidy has revealed that cigarette butts are the most littered item in England. In fact, cigarette litter can be found in 99% of streets in town centres, highlighting the endemic nature of the problem.  Public Health England has stated that over 7 million adults in England smoke, which represents 16.9% of […]

BPS encourages the use of e-cigarettes as quit smoking method

Wednesday, 11th October 2017

The British Psychological Society (BPS) has urged a widespread promotion for e-cigarettes to be encouraged as a cessation aid for quitting smoking. Their report Changing Behaviour: Electronic Cigarettes’ recently published goes into great detail as to why e-cigarettes should be endorsed to help smokers switch to vaping and quit cigarettes altogether. E-cigarettes were the most […]

Vapourlites welcomes a change of name to Vapour.com

Wednesday, 04th October 2017

Vapourlites are absolutely thrilled to announce our new re-brand, changing our name from Vapourlites, to vapour.com (VAPOUR), dropping the ‘lites’. The move comes as the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) 2014, questions the use of the term ‘light’ or ‘lites’ which describes cigarettes or e-cigarettes by retailers. It is therefore to be replaced or removed and […]

Friday, 22nd September 2017

Just over one week until the annual Stoptober 2017 campaign begins, an initiative run by the NHS, where almost 1 million people have quit smoking cigarettes.

Wednesday, 13th September 2017

Following from World Suicide Prevention on Sunday 10th September, Vapourlites sought to find out the relationship between smoking and mental health problems in the UK, particularly depression.
