    Electronic cigarettes are now appearing on shopping sites

    I've seen 2 of these types of ads on bargain-aggregating sites in the last month:

    E-Shisha Pipes

    Savour the Flavour! Only $19 for Two E-Shisha Pipes Delivered to Your Door.
    Free From Tar, Nicotine and Other Harmful Chemicals, They're Great for Socialising.
    Available in Seven Delicious Flavours. Valued at $58

    Only $19


    Interesting visuals:

    not to mention the spin in the ad-copy:

    - delicious flavours
    - Safer than standard electronic cigarettes
    - free from nicotine, tar and other harmful toxins
    - perfect for smoking socially
    - fruity flavours make them enjoyable for both smokers and non-smokers

    Its good to see vaping getting more exposure but I'm not sure I like the way it's being portrayed.

    This is the reason people are generally turned off e-cigs. Cig alike throw away e-cigs with no nic. Stupid!

    The last person that asked me about my Vape - "how many puffs does it do?" I asked him wtf are you on about with "puffs". This is rechargeable so I can puff this for the rest of my life.

    Yep, in the past I've had family members who we're adament that ecigs were not for them as they had bought crappy useless ones, much like these:

    Buy Electronic Cigarettes with Chargers and 10-Refills Set (110V~240V AC)

    from dodgy markets like laverton market (if you're in melbourne) or smoke shops and came to the conclusion that they would not satisfy their needs mostly due to how poorly they performed and how they had no nicotine in them. Since then I've given some of them a hit on my simple ego/clearo setups and when I explained that they can technically charge an ego battery, fill a clearo up with decent eliquid that has nic in and they're good to go for the entire day. The instant realization that this particular setup could actually work for them is amazing to see.

    It kinda saddens me to know that the majority of those who don't actively look into the subject further have no choice but to discount their potential to help them quit smoking due to what is being pedalled out there with very little knowledge by such vendors.
