    Juul e-cig

    A friend who doesn't vape sent me this Wired article on the Pax "Juul E-Cig" vapouriser.

    This Might Just Be the First Great E-Cig | WIRED

    https://www.juulvapor.com/

    In the article the owner (?) of the company says that they are building something different. They use the analogy of a NeSpresso and an iPhone. They use words like "fun". And I quote How do you make somebody look cooler? Give them a cigarette. This just makes me boil!

    Take a look at the three minute (!!) add on the vendor web site ( at your own risk of losing 5-10 IQ points). 3 minutes of dancing "cool" people to tell me that it's simple to use. Ugh!
    200 puff count battery life, juice carts (1-2ml max), and what looks like anemic vapour production. And this from the article ...

    "You wont find raw nicotine in nature, he says; its mixed in with organic acids and other substances. Its this cocktail that makes nicotine palatable. We figured out how to incorporate some of these organic acids into the juice, Atkins says, so we were able to get a very cigarette-like experience.

    "organic acids"? We are already battling to get approval for food grade flavours. Now we have a "secret sauce" that is probably a trade secret in e-juice?

    FSM help us!

    Really? So what do they call the nicotine in potatoes, tomatoes and tobacco? 'Cooked' nicotine?

    I think Mr Smarty-Pants "Pax" contends that "it’s mixed in with organic acids and other substances". Like the 4000 chemicals RJR put in the sh!t sticks <sarcasm intended> .

    Another article on the Juul: Startup behind the Lambo of vaporizers just launched an intelligent e-cigarette

    - temperature control
    - nicotine salts instead of liquid (no zero-nic offerings, maybe?)
    - 4 pack of cartridges for $16 (what, $2 per ml of liquid?)

    From what I can see the temp control is what they set it at.
    Nicotine Salts - a whole other round of FDA approval and "Anti" hysteria, good luck with that.

    "Marketing muppets" - exactly. This from that last link - "his contrarian impulse may serve Juul better when it comes to its thin, rectangular design. As Atkins put it: "I like to wear skinny jeans."" says it all.

    "They’re either small and round, designed to look and feel as much as possible like a cigarette, or they’re huge, assembled from many parts, and spectacularly complicated. Even the best of them look like you’re smoking from an oboe"
    OK a battery and a tank... Jesus Motherloving Christ that is complicated.

    "You do look a little like you plugged a USB stick into your mouth when you use it, but it’s undeniably cooler than that insipid mess of tubes and glowsticks you’re probably using now"
    What? Tubes and Glowsticks?

    Man... People Suck
