Help! Broken e-cigarette?

I finally got my refillable e-cigarette this morning..

I plugged the removable end in and the cig for REALLY hot to the point where i had to unscrew it and put it down..

So when it cooled down i tried again and breathed in this time but the end didnt light up and no smoke/vapour came out :/

I plugged the usb in as i thought maybe its low on battery but then the usb also got ridiculously hot and smelt like burning plastic O_________O

Is there anything i can do? D:

It's just my luck to get a faulty one, eh? -.-;;

  • Oh no, I wouldn't use that - I remember reading not long ago about one that exploded in a mans face & it knocked some of his teeth out & part of his tongue :eek:

    Sounds dodgy to me if it's that hot, I'm using a nicorette Inhalator & it's great :)

    Move away from the hot cig... :eek: :D

    I've emailed the company so hopefully they will send me another one!

    How many cigarettes worth do you get in an inhalator? Roughly?

    Haha!! :D

    Not sure how how many puffs you get but you use it more like a pipe so just little puffs - i've got loads of the cartridges left from one of my quits & I only use one cartridge a day & I was a chain smoker!

  • Hi Strawbs!

    This is what the blurb in my inhalator pack says...

    "Each cartridge will provide you with about 40 minutes of intense use. You can divide this time how you like, For example, you could use a cartridge for four 10 minute inhalation periods. Or you could use a cartridge for 10 minutes upon waking and then for six periods of five minutes later on in the day..."

    Or, you could do what I think most do and just use it when you've got a bad craving. A couple of puffs and the craving goes and you just get on with your quit. I've used about ten/twelve cartridges tops in the last...hang on...oooh, need me toes...that's it, 53 days.

    Hope that helps. Any other questions, just shout! :)

  • I've always been concerned by these e-cigs, I don't think they have any specific standards to comply with as they are not a medical thing.

  • Thanks for the info :) i shall look out for the inhalator next time im in the shop!

  • Worth a read if you're bored one day...

    ECigs and their Pixie Workforce.

  • great topics. I read one by one what really happen here and find out that I also used e cigarette. Well, I find it good never to mention the health effects. :)

    If you are wanting quit full stop, I wouldn't recommend these, but if you are just using them as a healthier alternative then fair enough.
