I woke this morning to find a BBC article forwarded by our MD, relaying the sad tale of a man from Florida who was killed by an exploding e-cigarette. This is of course a highly tragic story, and our condolences go to the loved ones he left behind.
In terms of the reporting, there was definitely a change in tone from usual media reports: the BBC openly acknowledged that the user had tampered with the device to allow it to put out more power, rather than demonising e-cigarettes as a whole. They made clear that it was user intervention, and not the device as originally sold, that lead to the unfortunate outcome.
This article is here to serve as an important reminder, to all users, how important it is to understand battery safety. But before jumping into it, a little context:
Facts and statistics
It is estimated that one in ten US citizens
For most vapers, these products are commonplace. New vapers, however, always ask the same questions… so here’s the low-down on short fill.
What are short fill liquids
As the name suggests, the idea is that you buy a part filled bottle of e-liquid. The bottle leaves enough room for you to add a half, a full, or multiple nicotine shots. That’s all there is to it!
Originally, the vast majority of short fills were 50ml in a 60ml bottle. Adding a 10ml 18mg nicotine shot then gives you a full bottle of 3mg e-liquid. Then came 80ml in a 100ml bottle. For this, adding 2x10ml 15mg nicotine shots gives you 100ml of 3mg. Then came brands like The Big Tasty. These give you 100ml in a 120ml bottle, so you add 2x10ml 18mg shots for a whopping 120ml of 3mg e-liquid.
The lastest incarnation is 25ml in a 30ml bottle. Add half of an 18mg nicotine shot and you’ll end up with 30ml of 3mg.
We’re really surprised nobody has done 20ml in a
The buzzwords of today are the wallpaper phrases of tomorrow. In marketing, the dustbins are full of overused phrases, such as “putting the customer first” or “save time and money”. In clickbait circles, the terms go outy of vogue quicker still. Back in the day just marking a video title with ‘Hilarious’ would guarantee some views. When lots of people with unfunny pranks also used the word “hilarious” in their videos, all of a sudden, it took more to compel action.
In the e-liquid field, it is difficult to think of a term that has been more overused and abused than ‘Premium e-liquid’. There are a few runners up, such as ‘only the best quality ingredients’, but there’s simply too many ‘premium e-liquids’ out there that blatantly are not. The poor brands stealing the phrase are ruining it for everyone… sorry… there’s a rant coming on.
Why does it annoy?
Quite simply, when you get companies who sell a 10ml e-liquid for a pound and still have the nerve to put
