FlavourArt, the Made in Italy flavours tailor that changed the game

Today we have the pleasure to sit down and chat with Mr. Massimiliano Mancini, CEO and Co-Founder of FlavourArt, the Italian flavour manufacturer who changed the vaping game and contributed to shape the industry we all love, one aromatic flavour at a time.

FlavorArt CEO, Mr. Massimiliano Mancini
FlavorArt CEO, Mr. Massimiliano Mancini

FlavourArt is a brand that everybody in the vaping universe associate to quality and values, variety and reliability, and plays a key role in the development of e-liquid recipes worldwide.

It’s not that unlikely the e-liquid you are vaping carries a FlavourArt flavour in its ingredient formulation!

A true pioneer in the vaping industry, the Italian flavour company FlavourArt discusses his humble origin, the outstanding present and what the future will holds.

Who is FlavourArt?

FlavourArt is an Italian company headquartered in Oleggio, a small township nearby Milan, Italy. We are a manufacturer of concentrated flavours and e-liquids, we supply food grade aromas for thousands of top-notch brands and e-liquid makers worldwide, and we also cater for players in the ordinary food and beverage industry.

During the past 14 years we have further expanded our reach with the incorporation of subsidiaries in EU countries and in Canada to better serve our North American side of business, as well as setting up partnership programmes with local companies and distributors worldwide.

We have now set a strategical step in Hong Kong and have a dedicated resident Business Development Manager, to further develop our existing fairly good business in the Asia Pacific region. Our plan is to gain a major foothold in a market area we consider the fastest-growing in the industry, and critical for the future of the industry as a whole.

We are ready to serve the APAC region even better than before with our Made in Italy quality product, especially Mainland Chinese flavour and e-liquid producers, e-cig manufacturers, distributors as well as individual vapers.

Currently we are considered amongst the top 3 flavour producers for vaping application, respected by our peers, highly regarded by users, and very beloved also in the DIY community.

We proud ourselves to have a wide portfolio of around 250 proprietary flavours and 50 ready to vape e-liquids. The majority of our products are DAAP-free, TPD-registered and compliant, and developed in our 5,000 sqm duly certified ISO9001 and ISO14001 facility where HACCP and GMP systems are applied in all production processes to ensure quality and safety.

How everything started?

When me and my wife, Ms. Anna Facchino, established FlavourArt back in 2006 we had a simple and unpretentious plan in mind: entertain a small scale and family run business dedicated to the production of food grade concentrated flavours and aromas.

Vaping was not an option. Not at all.

We have been involved in the food industry for 20 years, holding positions at the top-management level in multinational enterprises, and we were willing to continue such path in this business sector by offering our high quality Made in Italy aromatic creations directly to consumers and culinary enthusiast.

We setup an online shop in our website www.flavourart.com pretty much at the very beginning of our venture, and that proved to be key to our success from a revenue point of view but also from a marketing standpoint: we were just one of the very few flavour companies who offered an online store purchase experience to end users, and people started talking about us in forums, newsgroups and online bulletin boards.

Can you introduce us when FlavourArt stepped up and embraced vaping as a whole?

We honestly and literally had no clue what vaping was all about.

In 2009 we started receiving written enquiries and phone calls by individuals asking whether our flavours could be diluted and used for electronic cigarettes. 2009 was also the year we started witnessing the very first wave of mass-produced personal vaporisers and devices from Mainland China. So this triggered a possibility to study the topic better and we started thinking to develop liquid products dedicated to this unusual application, to be sold via our existing online shop platform.

10 years ago we had the unexpected opportunity to focus on entering a scene that did not existed yet, fully embrace it and mould it. It was that serendipitous discovery that made FlavourArt the company now many recognises as one of the leading flavour manufacturers in our vaping niche.

Going online enabled us to be reachable by literally everybody in the world, and the online communities of vapers in the internet started to discuss about us in dedicated forum threads, which represented a key role in our international success. We are grateful to vapers, without them FlavourArt would not exist.

Can you tell more about your products, for those who don’t know your brand yet

We offer a wide range of concentrated flavours and e-liquids to suit everybody’s taste, for a total of around 300 different choices of different profiles such as sweet, fruit, dessert, floral, savoury, tobacco, specials etc.

Our concentrated flavours line (orange cap bottle) is aimed mainly to distributors, e-liquid makers and DIYers, and being intended to be diluted and mixed together for crafting a recipe of your choice.

Our e-liquids line (blue cap bottle) is TPD-compliant and ready to vape. The ideal and hassle-free solution for those who don’t want or feel ready to mix and blend. We offer different free-base nicotine strength.

We also developed some hardware for smokers wishing to successfully switch. Our latest device effort is the FLUO Mini, a closed-pod system that proved to be remarkably successful. We filled in the pods with our proprietary flavours, and currently it’s distributed widely in Italy and EU.

Our products are in liquid form, water-soluble synthetic food-grade flavourings, carried in pharma-grade USP propylene glycol, safe for human consumption and its application is actually multi-purpose: candy-making, food, drink, bakery, confectionery, snacks, dairy, coffee, tea, pharmaceutical, beauty, etc.

They are synthetic in nature, therefore they are all chemical compounds, manufactured with USA and EU repertoire, FEMA GRAS synthetic flavour materials, few of them carry food grade essential oils and botanical extracts.

Unless otherwise stated, the majority of these concentrates do not carry any allergens, alcohol, sugars, protein, genetically modified ingredients, animal ingredients of any kind, preservatives, sweeteners or colours. They are all gluten and peanut free, suitable for diabetics, vegetarian and vegans.

In 2014 the vaping community expressed ongoing concern over ingredients such as DAAP (diacetyl, acetoin, acetyl propionyl) that may cause health issues on the pulmonary apparatus: FlavourArt actually recognised and addressed this matter already back in 2010 by removing diketones from the recipes and adhering to the principles of harm reduction and avoidable risk.

Let me also stress out the fact that we were the first – and the only one, as far as we know – flavour house that clinically tested the flavours’ aerosol’s emissions from a toxicological point of view, with the purpose to prove the harm reduction of our products in comparison to combustible tobacco cigarettes.

Tell us more about FlavourArt harm reduction research efforts

Through the project ClearStream Onward (www.clearstreamonward.com) we collected all the relevant scientific data to prove the harm reduction of the actual vapour produced by our flavours. Users are kept informed on the progresses and outcomes in the dedicated website, where they can be able to browse and dig the results of the analysis in full transparency.

We love and believe in vaping. We always wanted to put a protocol in place in order to always improve and develop safe products.

Being pioneers and innovators, we believed a continued investment into research and testing was needed, with safety being the main priority. In 2015 we partnered up with the biotech company FEM2-Ambiente (now TRUSTiCERT), a spin-off of the University of Milano-Bicocca, for a scientific venture aimed to test the cytotoxicity of our flavours’ vapour, in order to ensure that what we inhale is the safest it can possibly be.

Such joint venture represents a key investment for FlavourArt, and ClearStream Onward is our jewel in the crown, as we always have been concerned about ensuring consumer safety. It is of crucial importance we assess the types and the levels of emissions produced by e-cigs, and our investments in research will be always aimed to confirm the absence of heavy metals and harmful compounds from the vaporization process.

This ground-breaking scientific technological protocol is something never witnessed before in the whole vaping industry, and we proud ourselves for being the very first stakeholder to embrace this sensitive matter in due advance.

All the data and knowledge collected so far allowed us to be in compliance with the EU regulatory, and we believe it will help to get through the forthcoming FDA’s deeming regulation in USA.

Tell us more about the future projects of FlavourArt

We have been working tirelessly in the development of new flavours, new products and formats as well as new technology without compromising safety. We listened to comments and suggestions in order to serve better our clients and customer base.

COVID-19 had an important impact to everybody’s life and businesses, but this didn’t stop our constant will to research, create, innovate.

Even though we have a resident Manager in Hong Kong, for the time being shipments are arranged from our Italian headquarter. But we are planning to setup a proper production facility and an equipped warehouse in the forthcoming future, to serve better our APAC clients.

 

Is there something further you would like to say to our readers?

We all know our industry has a disruptive potential, which is uncomfortable to many, and we have in our hands the chance to advocate and provide a safer alternative to smokers. We are vapers, we love what we do. All our partners are passionate vapers, we all believe in a future without the harm of tobacco. We listen, we advocate, and we care, because we are one of you.

We could change statistics, we can make people live better lives and adopt less harmful lifestyles.

APAC region, especially Mainland China, is a market with a huge potential: according to the latest stats, China accounts 300 million smokers and 28% of adults do smoke. And by producing 40% of the world’s cigarettes, China is the largest manufacturer of combustible tobacco products: this is where vaping must interfere, saving millions of lives.

Never forget that vaping should only be regarded as a smoking cessation tool for current adult smokers, as it’s undoubtedly a safer alternative than smoking combustible tobacco. It’s not a game, and flavours are of crucial importance for such transition to a less harmful alternative. Never forget that our final mission is the achievement of a smoke-free society.

And we are proud to be considered one of the main protagonists of this revolution.

Interview with Yang from Team Mist (Starry Sky pod mod) – DirtyCheck No.79

Although under the influence of the epidemic, fewer friends are coming to the IECIE vape show, we still have something to share with you. Today Captain Dirty takes you into the story behind the brand of Team Mist and its product Starry Sky pod mod (One device for different pods from different brands – put the pod inside the box to vape).

Team mist Starry Sky POD MOD Team mist Starry Sky POD MOD Team mist Starry Sky POD MOD

Interview with Mr. Yang from Team Mist

Team mist Starry Sky POD MOD

Captain: Hello, Yang. What kind of opportunity brought you into contact with the e-cigarette industry?

Yang: It’s my friends from other places that go back to their hometown and have a bar party! Very interesting gadget.

Captain: What do you think of the electronic cigarette industry now?

Yang: The potential is great. After all, it can really help the public to reduce damage to their health. It will be much better after the regulation!

Captain: Because we have known each other for a long time, is there any obsession with continuing to stick to the e-cigarette industry in recent years?

Yang: Because I am not like someone who intended to quit smoking, I stopped the addiction of two packs of cigarettes a day on the way of playing with vapes. I found that as long as we use it properly, it can completely help smokers, so every time 1 customer or friend get success, I was very happy to hear the good news!

Captain: It is indeed a more real experience, very interesting and meaningful.

We also know that you have been trying to develop something by yourself. How do you think about it?

Yang: Actually, I really want to strive for perfection, but later I found it’s to take unnecessary pains to study an insignificant problem.

I wanted to achieve high quality and low price both, so I wasted a lot of time and took a lot of detours.

Captain: It seems to be more tortuous, but I believe this is also your precious experience.

So in the case of such a popular pod vape market background, why did you choose to make box mod vapes?

Yang: Because the market is currently full of similar pod vapes in China.

But the box mod is actually a core element in vape, and its playability and fun are much more.

Even if I don’t do it, someone will do it. It’s just a matter of time!

Captain: It makes sense. I agree with this point very much.

So what was your original intention for making this box?

Yang: I want to make friends who touch it in early times to learn that there are really many things and specialties in vape.

And in terms of versatility to achieve a multi-purpose state, truly achieve the cost performance!

Captain: Yes, the threshold for newbie brands seems to be lower than before, but it is also more difficult.

Can you give us an official introduction to your products now?

Yang: Of course, in the early stage, it can be used with some mainstream pod vape pods/cartridges.

And it is presented in a built-in way, avoiding the shortcomings of unsightly exposed cartridges.

Added the diversity of replaceable panels and 510 drip nozzles,

You can do DIY of different pods from different brands without buying more devices while using it. (One device for different pods from different brands – put the pod inside the box to vape)

In the later period, the self-contained mold atomization system will be updated, so that the same device can also enjoy the extra atomization experience.

From prefilled to refillable to DIY, this will be the biggest feature of the universal and compatible device. It’s the end game of all pod devices.

Captain: I feel that this setting is very suitable for the current market. How will the product be upgraded later?

This is actually my biggest concern, because you also know that there are too many brands for playing tricks.

Yang: It will add more fun versatility. It will be kept secret for the time being, HAHAHAHA, but I am sure that we are definitely not playing tricks we are really starting from the experience.

Captain: HAHAHAHA, you arouse my interest by selling like this, it’s great.

There are many people who came to your booth today. How is the product feedback in this exhibition?

Yang: After many user merchants came to watch and play, according to their personal standards, it will be one of the brightest products in the entire exhibition.
The feedback is dazzling, and it is also one of our surprises!

Captain: Cool, I think this is a kind of affirmation, very good.

I am personally curious about this brand. Does the brand logo have any special meaning?

Yang: The source of the logo is actually the two subtitles ms within the overall Team Mist.
Xiaowu wants to continue a popular brand in accordance with the attitude of a group!

Captain: I think the concept of a group is very good. It is very cool to pursue excellence.

Ask a question that consumers care about, is the product pricing strategy mid-to-high-end or mid-range?

Yang: Our original intention was cost-effectiveness, so of course the price will be close to the state of being close to more consumers.

While perfecting every detail and accessories, to make users feel that the value is worth the money, that is the result we want!

Captain: Yes, regardless of the defined price, the pursuit of cost performance is what consumers really need.

I saw that you also have various DIY panels at this exhibition, but they are all prototype types. Are there any problems?

Yang: Uh, yes, there are indeed some technical problems, but they don’t affect shipments.
In fact, what we need most is to communicate directly with customers, listen to their opinions and ideas, and wait for the official machine to come out to win word of mouth.

Captain: I really didn’t expect this. There are some craftsman emotions in it.
It’s true to focus on direct conversations with consumers to get more good results, very detailed.
Last question, do you know the slogan of TrueToy? HAHAHA

Yang: Well, I really understand it. It probably means how we play Vape. All the highlights are in TrueToy, right?

Captain: hahahaha, it’s almost like that. I also wish your products will sell well after the show!

Yang: Thank you!

Team mist Starry Sky POD MOD

Final words

Indeed in the current blind vape era, the threshold is indeed lowered a lot, but it also adds a lot of difficulty to newcomers.

The difficulty lies in the actual pros and cons of the devices, etc.

There are really too few brands that can calm down and make machine seriously and talk to consumers.

However, for Captain, Team Mist is undoubtedly the best in this regard.

The follow-up Captain will also update the latest developments of Team mist “Starry Sky” POD MOD.

Please stay tuned with Captain Dirty. See you next time.

ARTERY MT4 review – DirtyCheck No.77

There will indeed be many new product releases near the vape exhibition in Shenzhen, China,
This is why Captain delayed the release of reviews,
But recently this MT4 produced by Artery caught my attention,
Because it has a linked easter egg with a Cafe Racer vape,
So how is this product, we continue now.

ARTERY MT4 review

ARTERY MT4 review

ARTERY MT4 starter kit content

MT4 Kit *1
Refillable cartridge *1
USB charging cable *1
Warranty card *1
E-liquid experience kit *1

It is worth mentioning that the cigarette butt experience device is a small linkage with the Cafe Racer,
It can be seen that such brands pay great attention to experience quality

ARTERY MT4 review

ARTERY MT4 parameters/ specifications

Size: 23mm*14mm*92mm
Material: PCTG/PC+ABS
Battery capacity: 480mAh
Cartridge capacity: 2mL
Pod resistance: 1.3ohm

ARTERY MT4 colors

Black, orange, red, blue, gray, pine blue green

ARTERY MT4 review

ARTERY MT4 user experience

First come a friendly reminder,
In fact, when it is not linked with Cafe Racer e-liquid,
It’s also been produced, you will know it by looking at the packaging,
The packaging with e-liquid will be larger, or it would be smaller.

ARTERY MT4 review

1.3ohm resistance cartridge with nicotine salt is a great experience,
Especially in conjunction with Cafer Racer e-liquid,
The vaping is relatively detailed and gentle,
1.3ohm is not a regular cartridge setting,
Relatively reduce the impact of nicotine salt,
It makes the taste more comfortable and soft.
But when experiencing 6mg and 12mg of e-liquid,
It’s just a very ordinary vaping.
The vaping of the cartridge is not comprehensive,
In other words, this is just a pod vape device suitable for smoking nicotine salt vape juice.

ARTERY MT4 review

Under the actual experience,
480mAh of power is not very good for one day of battery life,
People who have a large demand for e-cigarettes like Captain,
You would run out of power in the morning,
The 2mL capacity is slightly weak,
I tried it subjectively, but I can only add it to 1.6-1.7mL.
The utilization rate of pod is not high

ARTERY MT4 review

The choice of material is very good,
But the design seems a little less interesting,
Compared with Smoore’s devices,
There is obvious technological weakness.
And the price is not as cheap as the latter.
It’s not cost-effective.

ARTERY MT4 review

Verdict

Although there is the blessing of Cafe Racer e-liquid,
It’s difficult to get good reviews on the device.
Excellent use of materials,
Although the excellent double coating process is used,
Still did not cover up the design deficiencies,
Fortunately, the experience is good.
Seaweed fiber cotton is used to make handling more comfortable,
To make up for an overall defect.
It feels light in your hand.
Whether it’s the battery life or the pod capacity,
It’s suitable for friends with low demand for nicotine salt.
Is the price of 138 yuan a bit high?
This has to be verified by market feedback.
So would you like such a device?
Alright, I’m Captain Dirty, see you next time.

Langyantianxia launched ColorBar, a multi-purpose vaping device

After the ANN disposable electronic cigarettes became popular in China, Langyantianxia has not made major moves in the industry for a while.

Recently, Langyantianxia has launched a big move, launching a multi-purpose vaping device called ColorBar magic stick.

langyantianxia multi function vaping device

The multi-purpose refers to the ColorBar magic stick device, which can be adapted to the cartridges of multiple mainstream brand electronic cigarettes.

We know that different brands of e-cigarette devices have different flute dimensions and cartridge sizes. How can they be used for different brands of e-cigarette cartridges?

The solution given by Langyantianxia is: adapter.

langyantianxia multi function vaping device

In the era of EGO electronic cigarettes, when the VIVI Nova atomizer was popular, in order to make the VIVI Nova atomizer screw on the EGO battery more beautiful, some companies specially designed an adapter. Because the Vivi Nova atomizer has a T-shaped base and has no adapter, it is ugly to screw it directly on the EGO battery.

This ColorBar magic stick is the same as this idea, and this idea is used to adapt to different cartridges. Different brands of electronic cigarette cartridges are equipped with different adapters.

It is understood that Langyantianxia has designed four different types of adapters to fit four different mainstream brands of electronic cigarette cartridges.

langyantianxia multi function vaping device

“There will be more adapters of different types to be designed later.” Langyantianxia said.

Speaking of the R&D concept of ColorBar, Langyantianxia said that nowadays, the electronic cigarette market is full of flowers and thousands of businessmen are contending, and each has its own cartridge, which leads to different brands and different cartridge shapes.

“We have done market research, and most users often choose more than one brand. If you want to try another new flavored cartridge, you need to buy a new device. ”

“The original intention of our research and development is to solve this pain point and reduce the trouble of users buying devices. We developed this ColorBar, which can be adapted to the mainstream electronic cigarette cartridges in the market, so that users can spend less money. Have more choices and experience different brands of cartridges!” said Langyantianxia.

n order to adapt to different electronic cigarette cartridges, ColorBar uses AN Vulcan smart chip. According to reports, it can automatically identify the internal resistance of mainstream brand cartridges, and then give the corresponding output power, analyze the e-liquid, and restore the taste.

langyantianxia multi function vaping device

For users, with the ColorBar, it is convenient to use; but it also raises another question: For the brand that adapts the cartridge, does such an operation violate the brand’s major interest? Is there any infringement?

Since this product was launched by Langyantianxia, the e-cigarette official account interviewed Yang Rongxin, the head of operations for Langyantianxia. Want to know what he thinks of this issue.

During the communication process, Yang Rongxin repeatedly emphasized that we are making “lighters”, not “cigarettes”, which is equivalent to equipping cigarettes with lighters.

langyantianxia multi function vaping device

And explained: “Now in the market, for the refillable electronic cigarettes, the profit is mainly based on the cartridges, not the devices. We do not make branded cartridges, but only make devices, which is equivalent to potentially serving the brand. Promote the brand’s pods. Therefore, we do not compete with the brand. We have also talked with some brands. They are very supportive and hope that we can cooperate with them. In terms of intellectual property rights, we applied for a practical application in 2018. The new model patent has now obtained the patent certificate.”

“After the ColorBar went popular, more brands may want us to match their cartridges.” Yang Rongxin predicted.

From different angles, there are different views. What do you think of the ColorBar one machine with multiple uses?

CBD Vaping – What’s the Difference Between CBD E-Liquid and CBD Oil?

Cannabidiol – known more generally by its abbreviation, CBD – is becoming commonplace in the UK market. A growing collection of products now incorporate the product. In fact, the cannabinoid can now be found in chocolates and drinks and even in clothing and pillows, to name a few!

Yet, CBD oils and e-liquids remain among the most popular products on the market. Although they might look much the same, it is important not to mix them up CBD oils and e-liquids. So, what is the difference between them?

The non-psychoactive cannabis derivative has been found to have a number of potential benefits, from relieving feelings of stress and anxiety to improving sleep and even reducing pain. Vaping and the use of sublingual (under the tongue) drops are two of the most popular ways of taking CBD.

The popularity of these products is probably owed to the high bioavailability that they offer. Bioavailability refers to the percentage of the compound that is effectively absorbed by the body. Vaping and sublingual application happen to have some of the highest rated of absorption for CBD consumption.

What is a CBD E-Liquid?

Vaping has become increasingly common around the world, as many people look for a less unhealthy alternative to smoking. In many cases, vape products may contain nicotine to ease the transfer from smoking to vaping. However, a growing number of people are now looking to vape products for other uses – namely, as a way to safely and conveniently incorporate CBD into their everyday lives.

CBD e-liquids, also known as CBD vape juices, are applied to vape pens which convert the liquid into vapour. This vapour is then inhaled by the consumer. Other products available on the market include ready-filled CBD pens. Vaping is believed to be the most effective way to administer CBD, thanks to high absorption in the lungs.

What are CBD Oils?

CBD oils or tinctures are becoming increasingly common and can be easily sourced from many stores, both online and on the high street. These oils can be used in a number of ways, including being dropped and held under the tongue, and applied topically (directly to the skin).

These products are often sold with a dropper and are known as ‘tinctures’. They allow for easy application, both sublingually (under the tongue) and topically. Second to vaping, CBD is believed to have amongst the highest bioavailability when applied sublingually. This is due to thin barriers between skin surface and veins under our tongues.

Although these products are perfectly safe for oral and topical consumption, they shouldn’t be confused with e-liquids/vape juices and inhaled as a vapour.

What is the Difference Between E-Liquids and Oils?

CBD e-liquids and oil products often look very similar, with both commonly sold in small glass bottles. However, each product is designed specifically for its intended use and should not be mixed up.

CBD oil products are usually made by combining a CBD extract with a food-grade oil – commonly olive, hemp, or coconut oil. Some oils may also contain flavourings to make the oil taste more pleasant for oral consumption. These products were not designed to be exposed to high heats for vaporisation, unlike CBD vape juices / e-liquids. Using CBD oils that were not designed to be vaped may result in an unpleasant and potentially harmful vapor as well as possibly damaging the coil of your vape pen.

E-liquids are made using a CBD extract alongside a thinning agent such as PG/VG or MCT. These ingredients ensure that the liquid is thin enough to be vaporised effectively, producing a clean and comfortable vapor for inhalation. It is important to note that it is possible that CBD oils that were not designed for vaping may also contain MCT for thinning. However, this does not mean that it is safe for the purpose of vaping. To make a safe and effective e-liquid, these agents must be present in the correct proportions.

Always Check the Label

To ensure you are using your CBD products as they were, make sure to always check the labels. If the product is referred to as a ‘tincture’, then it probably isn’t intended to be put into a vape pen. The ‘How to Use’ directions on the packaging will also give you a guide to how the product is supposed to be applied. Above all, always buy your CBD products from trustworthy and responsible brands!

To avoid confusion, it may also be a good idea to simply buy a ready-filled CBD vape pen. This will take all the guesswork out of vaping the cannabinoid. There are a number of brands on the market that produce CBD pens, such as Hiatus. As well as being guaranteed the right product, this also makes dosing much more straightforward!

SLS ECIGOO heat-not-burn e-cigarette review – DirtyCheck No.76

In fact, when it comes to heat not burn products, many vapers resist it more or less.
But what Captain wants to say is there is some reason the HNB exists.
What we’re resisting is actually affected by devices like IQOS, which have a bad user experience.
I believe in China’s technology on the improvement of such devices.
Okay, let’s not talk nonsense, enter our topic today,
ECIGOO heat-not-burn device produced by SLS.

SLS ECIGOO heat-not-burn e-cigarette review

CIGOO brand introduction

Yunnan CIGOO Technology Co., Ltd. was established by Yunnan Henggang Technology Co., Ltd. and Shanghai Lvxin Electronic Technology Co., Ltd. that reached a strategic cooperation agreement.

SLS ECIGOO user experience

The operation is very simple, 5 presses on the power button to turn on,
It is also a child lock design of this device,
Insert the cartridge and press the power button for 2 seconds,
Wait for the body to vibrate by itself, then you can smoke on it.
Captain made about 13 puffs.
If you can’t smoke so much at a time, you can press and hold the ignition button for 2 seconds to turn off the heating,
Continue next time,
If you take a draw long enough every time, one cartridge can last 4 minutes.
But it is not recommended to run it for 4 minutes continuously.

The machine outside temperature is a bit high,
Although it is safe, the experience is not good enough,
In this later stage, I also hope that the brand pay attention to it.
The heating temperature experience feels very good,
The right temperature is neither too high nor too low,
It’s just right.
The setting of this smoking resistance also restores the resistance of real cigarettes.
There are four flavors of the cartridge,
They are tobacco, cold melon, mint, and strong mocha.

The taste is very good,
Those familiar with this kind of low-temperature HNB know,
When the cartridge is heated, the smell is a bit like Chinese medicine,
Is not a harmful gas,

Just from the analysis of taste,
All aspects of flavor restoration are very good.
Especially Mocha,
Is my favorite taste.
The coffee fragrance is very strong.
There is no doubt about the throat hit and buzz,
They have reached the feeling of real smoking,
Captain Dirty is even in deep buzz and feels kind of dizzy.

Verdict

With the continuous expansion and innovation of the HNB market,
HNB product is becoming more and more popular and scientific.
They’re not only reasonable in price,
There are also technological innovations.
This ECIGOO device is suitable for heavy smokers.
Friends who want to quit smoking instead of smoking for the sake of health,
Regardless of the taste control of the cartridge,
Or the processing details on the device,
This ECIGOO is doing very well.
The cleaning of ceramic heater is very convenient,
It can be cleaned well with a cotton swab,
However, inserting and fixing the cartridge is actually user friendly,
It is recommended to use some small designs to fix the cartridges tighter.
Although this device needs to be upgraded on the disadvantages of heating,
But at least Captain thinks,
This is indeed a good smoking cessation product.
I hope that their later flavors can also be updated soon.
To meet more demanding consumers,
Alright, I’m Captain Dirty, see you next time

British American Tobacco boosted by strong vaping and premium cigarette sales

British American Tobacco (BAT) has said that soaring premium cigarette sales and strong vaping demand in the US helped it to beat half-year profit targets.

Shares in the tobacco giant lifted higher on Friday after the Dunhill and Lucky Strike manufacturer reported an 18.8% jump in pre-tax profits to £4.59 billion for the six months to the end of June.

It said revenue increased by 0.8% to £12.2 billion for the period, as sales of more expensive cigarettes offset a slump in volumes.

The company added that Covid-19 pushed adjusted revenues down by 4% for the half-year.

Volumes in developed markets were “largely unaffected” by the virus, it said, while some emerging markets, such as South Africa, Mexico and Argentina, saw sales hit by government-mandated factory closures and sales restrictions.

BAT said revenues from its vaping business jumped by 41% to £265 million as it was boosted by strong sales of its Vuse brand in the US, Canada and Spain.

The company said it expects revenue growth of between 1% and 3% for the full year, assuming the global recovery from the pandemic continues in the second half.

Chief executive Jack Bowles said: “I would like to thank our staff, customers, partners and suppliers for working tirelessly through this difficult period.

“We expect the coming months to bring continued uncertainty.

“Nevertheless, we will continue to invest in accelerating our strategy.

“Building on our excellent momentum, we are confident that we will exit this crisis as a stronger and better business”

Shares in the company rose by 1.5% to 2,696p in early trading on Friday.
