Socialites e-cig are they safe?

Socialites e-cig

Are socialites e-cig safe? Well that depends on what you deem as safe I guess. There has only been a few years research into the health impact of electronic smoking. Illnesses such as cancer can take years develop. So short term research is not enough to confirm the safety of socialites e-cigs and other brands.

Socialites e-liquid

The e-liquid produced by socialites contains 3 main ingredients: Nicotine, Propylene glycol and glycerol. Nicotine is very toxic and a small amount can be fatal, Glycerol is safer – a simple sugar alcohol compound so no real worries here. There is some controversy surrounding Propylene Glycol with arguments for and against the level of its safety. It is used in many products from soaps and shampoo to foods and drugs. It is deemed safe for use by global regulatory bodies such as the MHRA and FDA.

Really wasn’t that long ago that we were told that tobacco was good for our health, with some doctors prescribed it as treatment for ailments – including sore throats! So should we be concerned about socialites e-cig? With any new technology there is an element of skepticism into its safety and feeling like we are guinea pigs for this new industry can be quite distressing.

Problems with socialites e-cigs

After using socialites now for over 6 months I have noticed a wide range of problems. I have used both the two part e-cig and the two vaporizers and encountered similar problems with both. The problems have caused me to get e-liquid in my mouth, on my skin and on my clothes. Which is extremely alarming as the safety info on the e-liquid bottles is clearly marked as toxic.

Problems I have encountered with socialites e-cig

  1. Battery over heating and causing very hot vapor entering my mouth and throat.
  2. E-liquid shooting out of the cartomiser into my mouth.
  3. Battery life drastically effected by the temperature (too cold and life is shortened)
  4. Faulty cartomiser, I screwed on a brand new cartomiser nothing came out. No vapor was produced.
  5. Too many empty cartomiser that you can’t recycle, surely any new industry should be producing goods that are 100% recyclable.

Problems that I have experienced with the socialite vaporizer

  1. Cracked inhalator, it seems every time I drop the socialites vaporizer onto a hard surface the clear plastic cracks causing juice leakage.
  2. When you take the mouth piece out to refill with e-liquid some of the juice doesn’t always go down into the chamber. So when you re-attach the mouth piece liquid comes out.
  3. E-liquid going into your mouth when you inhale; this happens way more frequently with the socialites vaporizer compared to the socialites e-cig.
  4. Sitting on the vaporizer and breaking it, often I keep the socialites vaporizer in my pocket and forget it’s there. It will break and sometimes leak if you sit on it.
  5. Unscrewing the battery, sometimes the wrong piece will become detached and if the chamber is full with juice, the contents will spill out all over my hands and clothes.

 

It is fair to say some of the problems that occur are my own fault and with more care and attention they may not happen. Nevertheless, should products that contain potentially fatal ingredients be allowed to be sold? People that smoke are often busy people like myself and whilst working I keep the e-cig or vaporizer in my pocket. If I forget that it is there and sit down it breaks and sometimes leaks. So better products should be sold that are stronger and pose no risk of leaking toxic e-juice.

Socilites e-cig and vaporizer positives.

After listing the bad points that I have found with socialites e-cigs it is only fair that I list the good points as well, so here goes.

  1. They have a range of great flavors which make the vaping experience really pleasant.
  2. The socialites e-cig is small and compact which allows for discreet vaping.
  3. The e-cig is very easy to use, this makes the transition from smoking tobacco cigarettes really easy.
  4. Health! I feel so much better now I have quit tobacco. My skin looks better, healthier and I am more vibrant. My fitness is improving I can exercise for longer without getting out of breath.
  5. The smell, I don’t stink like an old dirty ashtray any more! Which has pleased all my non smoking friends and I am happy as I am still getting all the nicotine I require. Smoking socialites has made me a lot happier in general.

 Socialites e-cig overview

All in all socialites e-cig and socialites vaporizers offer a very pleasant vaping experience. There are a variety of e-liquid/juice flavors to choose from and both vaping devices are pretty good and reliable. There are a few problems with the socilaites e-cig and the socialites vaporizer that I have outlined. This should be taken into account when choosing what brand to vape; although these problems occur among other brands as well.

Socialites e-cig is small and compact and they provide a smooth vape shot, that gives you the nicotine you need instantly, with juicy flavors and a range of traditional tobacco flavors as well. The socialites e-cig is a much better alternative to smoking tobacco, I have noticed a vast improvement in my fitness levels as I can breath a lot better. I don’t get that horrible phlegm that I would cough up every morning that is associated with tobacco smoking and I don’t stink like dirty stale smoke which my girlfriend (a non-smoker) really appreciates. So overall I would say that socialites e-cig has really improved my general well being and health as well as making my girlfriend very happy.

  • i have been using e cig since 5th july 2013. it is only that which could stop me smoking cigarettes. i have been smoking cigarettes since i was 14yrs old and I stopped in 2013 when I started with ecig. i always used socialites but now with cost of buying in sterling being so high I have had to buy another ecig in Belgium and am not as happy with it . socialites e juice are now made in england but taste has changed but efficiency hasnt. I have been .6 pc for a long time now. i do still have breathing probs but that was because I was diagnosed with COPD 5 years ago hence my reason for trying to stop but only ecigs could do it. i have also persuaded other friends to vape and they stopped smoking cigarettes too but we still like our little dab of nicotine ‘comfort’

    • Congratulations on quitting Maggie, a lot of people are having joy quitting with e-cigs. There are many ways to make things cheaper however. Did you know that you can refill the cartridges yourself? so instead of buying new tips all the time, you can just re-fill them with e-liquid. Here is a link to show you how https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fVbKMvc9bNE, if you get the hang of this then you can start making your own e-liquid, don’t worry it is very easy and so cheap. There are various sites out there that show you how. There are a few links in this article I wrote https://vaporizingtimes.com/cheap-e-liquid/ . Hope this is of some use.

  • Could you tell me if you can use any liquid in a socialite e cig. Can’t find a flavour I like but friends have nice ones but not sure if I can use them?

  • Does the e-liquid when smoke gives you a headache? I’ve been vaping for 2 yrs now after giving up tobacco smoking for which I am so pleased.
    However I have noticed of late , that I am suffering from excruciating headaches after a few puffs of vaping.
    Has there been any other reports of this happening to anyone else?

    • Ms Grant you are not alone in getting headaches when vaping, it happens to me to and to many people I have spoken to. The headaches I have found come when vaping too much of a high strength e-liquid. Try using a lower strength e-liquid and puffing less. I know it is hard to vape less when cutting out tobacco but i think it will help the headaches. I will be writing an article on headaches and vaping soon.
