These days, we as a society seem to always be thinking about which decisions will make our lives both healthier and happier. Quitting smoking is usually a top priority for most smokers when it comes to decisions concerning their health and I have been very curious about some of the new electronic cigarettes on the market today.
While smoking a traditional tobacco cigarette is definitely detrimental to your own health and possibly even those around you, it also has other side effects such as yellowing of the hair, teeth and nails. If you smoke inside your home, you'll also find that your home's walls and possessions will become sticky and yellow over time too. I should know.
Both of my parents smoked the entire time I was growing up and I was a social smoker myself, until I finally quit almost five years ago. E-Lites generously allowed me to review their E80 E-Cigarette Starter Kit as well as the 2X E-Tips Cartridge Refills in Menthol. Keep reading to find out how this electronic cigarette could definitely make you healthier and happier in the new year!
First, let me explain what an electronic cigarette is. It's a way for smokers, both regular and casual, to enjoy the pleasures of smoking, without experiencing the harmful additives and second-hand smoke found in traditional cigarettes.
E-cigarettes give you all the nicotine and flavor you want, but because they contain no tobacco or odor and aren't lit with a flame, you can smoke them anywhere. Another major benefit is that e-cigarettes won't pass on second-hand smoke to those around you and they won't make your clothes, skin and breath smell bad either.
E-cigarettes don't burn the same way that traditional cigarettes do. Rather, they have an atomization chamber that contains nicotine, flavoring, water and propylene glycol, a food additive commonly found in mouthwash. When you take a drag on an e-cigarette, a heating vapor coil is automatically activated, while liquid from the atomization chamber passes over it. This causes the liquid to be flash heated, which produces a smoke-like vapor that you inhale and exhale like a traditional cigarette.
Being a casual smoker several years ago, I can testify to the fact that I wasn't addicted to the nicotine itself, just the habit of being in a social setting and smoking. The act of smoking was the part that was so hard for me to break and now e-cigarettes can help make this process much easier.
This revolutionary new smoking alternative, not only simulates cigarette smoke but also the temperature associated with dragging off a common cigarette (50-60 degrees Celsius), thus adding to the psychological habit without adding the hazardous substances which have been proven to cause cancer, including carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, hydrocyanic acid, acrolein, arsenic, lead and hydragyrum.
The low cost E-Lites E80 E-Cigarettes Starter Kit contains everything you’ll need to start enjoying the many benefits offered by smoking electronic cigarettes. This starter kit includes:
- The equivalent of 80 tobacco cigarettes
- A rechargeable G9 battery
- A USB charger
E-Lites starter kits come in three styles: Reds (regular strength E-Lites), Golds (light strength) or Greens (menthol flavor).
E-Lites are the perfect choice if you’d like to smoke indoors or in places where conventional smoking would otherwise be frowned upon, such as hospitals or airports. They feature a green LED light at their tip so that they are less likely to be confused with conventional cigarettes in a public place.
E-Lites cigarette boxes are identical in size to conventional tobacco cigarette packaging.

Once I got the e-cigarette completely assembled, I took about a 3-4 second drag off of the it and the next thing I knew, I received a big throat hit that felt just like I was smoking! I even felt this hit down into my lungs too. This sensation lingered for quite a while just as it does when smoking a traditional cigarette. The flavor was harder to experience for me, since I didn't really taste it in my mouth.
I considered this a benefit though, since I always hated the way that smoking made my breath smell and my mouth taste afterwards. With the E-Lites cigarettes, I didn't get any of the residual aftertaste of smoking a traditional cigarette. The vapor also came out of my mouth and nose just like real smoke and I definitely felt like I was smoking the real thing!
An E-Lites e-cigarette cartridge, also known as an E-Tip, is the main component of your electronic cigarette. E-Lites E-Tips provide you with a full flavor vapor for an authentic vaping experience. E-Lites offer a large range of electronic cigarette cartridges available in regular strength (Reds), light nicotine strength (Golds), menthol (Greens) and their latest e-cigarette cartridge, nicotine free. The different strength and flavor electronic cigarette refills are fully interchangable with the new G9 electronic cigarette.
The great thing is if you are a regular smoker, you could reduce the cost of smoking by up to 70% by using E-Lites. One E-Lite e-cigarette refill cartridge is equivalent to approximately 40 tobacco cigarettes. Buying your refills in bulk will save you even more, bringing your cost down to as little as $1.99 per pack.
I really liked the overall e-cigarette smoking experience and would love to be able to smoke outside with my friends again at parties. The only difference is that now I will be enjoying my e-cigarette without nicotine, tobacco or any harmful carcinogens whatsoever! What a neat way to still be able to enjoy the act of smoking without all of the downsides and health risks associated with smoking a traditional cigarette.
