  Parliamentary Bill To Scrap The TPD
Posted by: Vapeoholic - 03-16-2018, 11:50 PM - Forum: E-cigarette News and Regulations - Replies (5)

A Bill is slowly making its way through Parliament that aims to remove the restrictions placed on the electronic cigarette market. The Tobacco Products Directive brought in limits on tank size, bottle size and nicotine content – Christopher Chope MP’s Private Member’s Bill has passed its first reading, but still faces an uphill journey and little chance of success.


It is a fact that only 4% of bills ever make it without failing, the Electronic Cigarettes (Regulation) Bill 2017-19 may succeed by virtue of the fact that it will be tied to Brexit.

The bill proposes that electronic cigarettes are removed from requirements laid down by the Tobacco Products Directive, and that they are considered separate to tobacco cigarette legislation.

The plan is for stipulations regarding advertising, tank capacity, bottle size, contents and packaging to be revoked on 30 March 2019, the day following the date Britain is set to leave the European Union.

Planet of the Vapes supports any move that reverses the illogical restriction of tank and bottle capacities. We believe that the limit placed on juice bottles simply leads to a greater production of packaging waste, including plastics, without any direct benefit to health.

No mention is made of the concentration limit applied to nicotine in eliquids. We hope that this will be addressed during further stages as the arbitrary maximum strength is illogical and poses a barrier to current smokers successfully switching.

Christopher Chope MP has previously voted against smoking bans


The Second Reading will occur on the Friday 16 March 2018.

Christopher Chope MP’s office has been approached for comment.

  Public Health England Boosts its Support for Vaping
Posted by: Vapeoholic - 03-16-2018, 12:47 AM - Forum: E-cigarette News and Regulations - No Replies

Almost three years after its first report that said vaping is 95 percent safer than smoking, PHE isn’t backing down.

By Jim McDonald - February 6, 2018

[Image: Public-Health-England-Boosts-its-Support-for-Vaping.jpg]

Once again, public health authorities in the United States and the United Kingdom are looking at the same information on vaping, but seeing two different things. And, as usual, it’s the British researchers who see mostly benefits.

Less than two weeks ago, the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine issued a 600-page report that grudgingly admitted vaping is safer than smoking — and then went on to focus on a supposedly proven gateway from teen vaping to smoking.

But the new e-cigarette report from Public Health England (PHE) says that the gateway evidence for British teens is poor, and goes on to suggest that the evidence is equally inconclusive in North America — practically trolling the American authors.

“Although these surveys in Canada and the US cannot be directly compared with data from the UK, they suggest similar patterns,” says the PHE report. “First, that ever or recently using an EC [e-cigarette] is not unusual among young people overall. However, both ever and recent use is far more common among young people who smoke than young people who have never smoked.”

“Concern has been expressed that e-cigarette use will lead young people into smoking,” Prof. Linda Bauld, author and Professor of Health Policy, University of Stirling, said in the PHE press release. “But in the UK, research clearly shows that regular use of e-cigarettes among young people who have never smoked remains negligible, less than 1%, and youth smoking continues to decline at an encouraging rate.”

The first PHE report became the trump card thrown on the table to end arguments with vaping skeptics.
That’s just a small part of the 243-page report, which lays out evidence on e-cigarettes that has emerged since PHE’s last look at the subject in 2015. The report also briefly addresses evidence on heat-not-burn tobacco products.

“Based on current knowledge,” the report concludes, “stating that vaping is at least 95% less harmful than smoking remains a good way to communicate the large difference in relative risk unambiguously so that more smokers are encouraged to make the switch from smoking to vaping.”

Key findings in the new PHE report include:

“Vaping poses only a small fraction of the risks of smoking and switching completely from smoking to vaping conveys substantial health benefits;
“E-cigarettes could be contributing to at least 20,000 successful new quits [in the U.K.] per year and possibly many more;
“E-cigarette use is associated with improved quit success rates over the last year and an accelerated drop in smoking rates across the country;
“Many thousands of smokers incorrectly believe that vaping is as harmful as smoking; around 40% of smokers have not even tried an e-cigarette;
“There is much public misunderstanding about nicotine. Less than 10% of adults understand that most of the harms to health from smoking are not caused by nicotine;
“The use of e-cigarettes in the UK has plateaued over the last few years at just under 3 million;
“The evidence does not support the concern that e-cigarettes are a route into smoking among young people. Youth smoking rates in the UK continue to decline. Regular use is rare and is almost entirely confined to those who have smoked.”
Notably, the report includes a section on misreporting of scientific studies that calls out both academics and the news media for irresponsibly frightening smokers away from e-cigarettes.

“Our new review reinforces the finding that vaping is a fraction of the risk of smoking, at least 95% less harmful, and of negligible risk to bystanders,” said Prof. John Newton, Director for Health Improvement at PHE, in the press release.

“Yet over half of smokers either falsely believe that vaping is as harmful as smoking or just don’t know,” he added. “It would be tragic if thousands of smokers who could quit with the help of an e-cigarette are being put off due to false fears about their safety.”

The new report also summarizes existing evidence on heat-not-burn (HNB) tobacco products. The PHE authors refer to HNB as “tobacco heating products,” a term also used by some of the manufacturers. Some HNB products, including Philip Morris’ IQOS, are already available in the U.K.

PHE takes a cautious approach on HNB products, noting that they “may be considerably less harmful than tobacco cigarettes and more harmful than e-cigarettes.”

The authors are among the most respected smoking, nicotine, and addiction researchers in the world.
The new report is titled, “Evidence review of e-cigarettes and heated tobacco products. A report commissioned by Public Health England.” The primary authors are Ann McNeill, Leonie S Brose, Robert Calder, Linda Bauld, and Debbie Robson.

Four of the primary authors are on the faculty of King’s College London, and four are affiliated with the UK Centre for Tobacco & Alcohol Studies (UKCTAS).

Nine others contributed to individual chapters of the report, including John Britton, Jamie Brown, Peter Hajek, Lion Shahab, and Robert West. The authors are among the most respected smoking, nicotine, and addiction researchers in the world.

The first PHE report led directly to the vape-positive environment we now see in the U.K.
The original PHE vaping report, “E-cigarettes: an evidence update,” arrived in the summer of 2015, and immediately caused a worldwide stir. It’s conclusion that vaping is “around 95 percent safer” than smoking became a mantra for vaping advocates. The first PHE report became the trump card thrown on the table to end arguments with vaping skeptics.

Vapers were relieved and thrilled to finally have backing from a major government’s public health establishment. But vaping haters made the report a target, calling the “95 percent safer” number arbitrary and accusing PHE of pulling it from thin air, although the PHE authors had already explained the number’s origin.

The first PHE report led directly to the vape-positive environment we now see in the U.K. The 2015 PHE report was followed less than a year later by the even more comprehensive one from the Royal College of Physicians. And last year, in England, vaping for the first time became part of a major government’s official tobacco control plan.

  Joyetech eGo AIO ECO - Ippolit
Posted by: Ippolit - 03-14-2018, 10:16 PM - Forum: Products Review - Replies (3)

Joyetech EGO AIO ECO Review

I received the tasteful grey & white version, suits me well; I don’t like multicoloured tech stuff. I won’t go into the specifications they are well covered elsewhere, I’ll focus on my experience instead.

Quickly unpacked, charged up within 30 minutes too using the supplied USB cable. Well constructed, as you would expect from Joyetech, a solid feel despite it’s very small size. Half filled with 40/60 zero nic double menthol, one drop in the coil to prime as advised in the brief but comprehensive instructions and then 5 minutes wait before using. Whilst waiting I cycled through the various LED illumination colours, they are not over bright and suit the discreet nature of the ECO, I settled on a blue/white that matches the grey. and white exterior finish.

I didn’t know which tip had been supplied, apparently there are two, for DL and MTL. So I had a first try with MTL; very good flavour for such a low powered device, I was very surprised! It did gurgle a lot and crackled a little. I had to pop out so stood it up in the jar that also contains my Ego AIO.

An hour later I gave it another pull, MTL - and found that the draw was very tight, suddenly there was a gurgle and I had juice in my mouth, not pleasant!

Had a look inside and saw that there was liquid in the chimney. I used a screwed up tissue to remove most of it and tried again, same problem. Drained and tried thicker liquid in case it was wicking too fast, same problem.

Next day I had the time to have a closer look, the chimney was very flooded so I drained the tank removed the coil, attached the drip tip to it and blew hard wiping off the liquid that came out of the end and the air vents on the tip, I repeated that until it stopped releasing the flood. It seemed liquid was collecting in the air vent channel concentric to the chimney, this explained the gurgles, the tight draw and the sudden nasty taste. You can see the slots in the top of the coil that form the air channel in the photo.

After refilling it now operates perfectly, so added my expensive CBD liquid to the tank. I found that it will work with my preferred DL technique now that the air channel is clear, so maybe I have a DL tip. Good vapour, intense flavour too! The battery does seem to last a very long time, ideal for a day out.

Overall, once the initial problem was overcome, I find it to be a very useful discreet vape, so tiny yet powerful. A great addition to my collection!

Many thanks Joyetech!
