Frequently Asked Questions about E-Cigs

An E-cigarette is a devise used to simulate the experience of smoking. The simulated smoke is a vapor mist that evaporates into the air. Below you will find FAQs about smoking and information on our E-Cigarette Stores in Michigan.

How do Electronic Cigarettes work?

When you use A Clean Cigarette, the act of inhaling (smoking) triggers a vaporizing process that releases simulated smoke. This is actually a vapor mist that evaporates into the air within a few seconds. An easy-to-replace battery is all it takes to continually power these e-Cigs. Michigan owners of our products save money and receive multiple benefits.

What are the leading reasons people use Electronic Cigarettes?

Most people who smoke do so because they enjoy the tactile, emotional and physical sensations. The leading reasons people use A Clean Cigarette include:

How do the ingredients compare to those found in other products?

The primary cartridge ingredient is propylene glycol, and the secondary ingredients are water, nicotine and flavoring to replicate the taste of traditional smoking. Ethanol is used to extract the nicotine from tobacco.  

What is propylene glycol?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has determined propylene glycol to be "generally recognized as safe" for use in food, cosmetics, and medicines. It is used in food coloring, and flavoring, as an additive to keep food, medicines and cosmetics moist, and in machines that simulate smoke, although usage in simulating smoking devices is not currently included in the list of uses generally recognized as safe by the FDA. In the best E-Cigs, propylene glycol functions to provide the vapor mist that looks like smoke and to suspend flavor.

What do Electronic Cigarettes taste and smell like?

Most users of Electronic Cigarettes will tell you the flavor or taste of our products closely replicate cigarettes. A Clean Cigarette cartridges are available in popular smoking flavors like regular "tobacco" and menthol flavors. The odor from Electronic Cigarettes is barely noticeable and does not linger, unlike traditional smoking products that create lasting, difficult-to-neutralize smells in rooms, cars and clothing.

If you experience little or no vapor when using A Clean Cigarette, please ensure that your battery is fully charged and properly connected to the cartridge. It may also help to replace your cartridge with a newer one. Always store cartridges in a cool and dry place.

How long does the battery charge last?
An Electronic Cigarette battery should last most of the day before needing re-charging, depending on the intensity and quantity of puffs. The indicator light tip will blink multiple times when the battery is getting low on power. We encourage you to carry with you an extra, charged battery. Charge a new battery initially for about 3 hours. Subsequent recharges should take about 2 hours. A battery can be recharged in excess of 300 times before reaching its useful life. A Clean Cigarette also offers a car charger for your convenience. A Clean Cigarette uses a 3.6V special lithium battery and charger, which cannot be replaced by other lithium batteries or chargers. The input supply voltage of the charger is AC100-240V, 50/60Hz, or DC 12-24V. When traveling, ensure that the local electrical supply is in accordance with these specifications.

Do Electronic Cigarettes cost more or less than traditional smoking products?

With ever-increasing taxes and price hikes on tobacco products in Michigan and across the country, Electronic Cigarettes can save you money and is more affordable than traditional tobacco smoking. If you average smoking one pack of tobacco cigarettes per day, at an average cost of $6 per pack, you would spend $2,190 per year. After the initial cost of your Electronic Cigarette kit, filters (cartridges) cost $3.50 each. Depending on how you inhale, each filter should equal 20-30 cigarettes, or a pack to a pack and a half. This is about half the cost of traditional cigarettes.

Where does the "smoke" go?
Electronic Cigarettes emit what appears to be smoke but is actually a virtually odorless mist that evaporates into the air within seconds, similar to the functioning of a humidifier. E-cigs leave no visual residue in the air or lingering smell in clothes, a home, a car, or other places.

How do you use Electronic Cigarettes?

A Clean Cigarette products are very easy-to-use and convenient. Each A Clean Cigarette product is rigid, doesn't easily crush and can be stored in a purse, pocket, drawer and any other handy location. Electronic Cigarettes are similar in size and color to a traditional cigarette. When you are ready to use the Electronic Cigarette, screw a cartridge onto a fully charged battery. Now, you are ready to draw on the Electronic Cigarette.

Are there any maintenance issues with Electronic Cigarettes?

Michigan residents across the state have learned that A Clean Cigarette products are very easy to use. In general, the only maintenance required is charging and replacing batteries and cartridges.
