Answers

Are electronic cigarettes and cigars banned by the FDA?

No. Electronic Ciagarettes and Cigars are legal in all 50 states and the District of Columbia as well as most countries internationally! For a synopsis of Electronic Cigarette related legal information internationally, please refer to theWikipedia entry on Electronic Cigarettes.
Can I Save Money Using Safecig?

Absolutely! Most of the money spent on cigarettes today goes towards taxes and they can cost upwards of $15 a pack in some states. If you add that up over the course of one month, that’s equivalent to a monthly car payment for a $23,000 car!

After being in the business for over 5 years we estimate that Safecig saves the average smoker close to $4,000.00 dollars a year. Although saving money may seem like the most beneficial thing about electronic cigarettes, we don’t believe it is.
Can I use my electronic cigarette anywhere I want to?

Our electronic cigarettes and cigars are non-combustible so it can be used in most “No Smoking” areas such as restaurants, bars, malls and even at your office. Local laws vary, but generally if you are not bothering anyone else, you should not have a problem. 80% of electronic cigarette smokers say they have never been bothered when using one. Users also report that they receive a lot of “what is that” questions from curious onlookers.
Can I use my electronic cigarettes on an airliner?

Unfortunately, No. While the FAA has made no rulings on Electronic cigarettes, most airlines have decided not to allow Electronic Cigarettes on US and most international flights. This is due to a blanket ban on any type of device that even looks like it could be combustible.
Do Electronic Cigarettes and Cigars have nicotine in it?

A Seminole Unconquered electronic cigarette contains about the same amount of nicotine as a nicotine patch but the effects are instant. Our products control when and where you get the nicotine.

Our Aurora Disposable cigarettes come in multiple strengths, meaning you can use less nicotine if you choose. Translated from milligrams into the percentage of nicotine contained in the fluid, the strength ratings are:

24mg – 2.4%
18mg – 1.8%
14mg – 1.4%

Do Electronic Cigarettes help you stop smoking?

If you’re using an Electronic Cigarette, you aren’t smoking! Electronic Cigarettes are a tobacco cigarette substitute designed for those looking for a better alternative to combustible tobacco cigarettes. Some users have reported that they have cut down their tobacco smoking, but our products are NOT sold as a stop smoking device and we do not claim that it is.
Does nicotine cause cancer?

Independent worldwide research studies over the last 50 years have shown no evidence that nicotine causes cancer in animals or humans.
How do I know when my Electronic Cigarette or Cigar is out of nicotine / fluid?

When the flavor starts to get less robust and flavorful, that’s the signal that you are running out of fluid. It’s a matter of taste. If it changes, it’s time to replace the refill cartridge. Some people report that the taste of an empty cartridge is like burnt paper. Typically once the cartridge looses it’s flavor or simply stops producing vapor it is empty and needs to be replaced.
How Do I Select a Nicotine Level I’m Comfortable With?

Seminole Unconquered disposable electronic cigarettes are available in 3 nicotine levels.

The guide below will help you select the right nicotine level for yourself.

24 mg = Comparable to “non filters” (Designed for the very heavy smoker.)
18 mg = Comparable to “full flavored”
14 mg = Comparable to “mediums”

How does an Electronic Cigarette work?

The refill cartridge has a heating coil inside that vaporizes the flavoring fluid that contains nicotine. When you take a drag on an electronic cigarette, the flow sensor automatically turns the coil on, heats the vaporizing fluid in the cartridge and generates vapor. The fluid is vaporized into a fine mist that looks identical to smoke, except there’s “No Smoke, No Tar, No Ash and No Bad Smell”
How Long Does a Disposable Electronic Cigarette or Cigar Last For?

Each cigarette will last about 120 puffs. 180 is roughly equivalent to 1 pack of cigarettes. Our electronic cigars will last about 800-1000 puffs, or about 8-10 cigars. We have noticed in the last 4 years that customers tend to use electronic cigarettes more frequently compared to their traditional cigarettes due to the increase in convenience. It is always wise to stock up on refills and plan ahead to make sure you do not run out. The last thing we want is for you to start smoking real cigarettes again. Please make sure that the refill cartridges are stored in a dry environment, out of direct sunlight and not in any hot, enclosed areas like a car. The average shelf life for an electronic cigarette is about 3 months unopened. Opened cigarettes should not be used after one week.
Is propylene glycol safe to inhale?

Propylene Glycol has been used in asthma inhalers since the 1950’s. It is a natural germicide and is the mixing compound of choice for most pharmaceutical and vitamin mixtures. If you take any kind of a commercial pill or have used an inhaler you have ingested propylene glycol. It is also the “smoke” you have seen in live theater and at concerts
Is the vapor dangerous for people around me like second hand smoke?

No. There is no second hand danger from Seminole Unconquered Electronic Cigarettes and Cigar products because there is no burning of any kind.
Isn’t propylene glycol the same stuff that’s in my car’s anti-freeze?

No, anti-freeze contains ethylene glycol, which IS a poison. Propylene glycol USP is a food and pharmaceutical product and it is non-toxic.
It says on my Seminole box “this product is not FDA approved”. What does that mean?

Seminole Unconquered makes no claims about the effectiveness of electronic cigarettes in helping anyone quit smoking tobacco cigarettes or in treating any disease. Your products contain nicotine and you should be aware of the risks involved in using nicotine products.
I’m using my Seminole Electronic Cigarettes more than my old cigarettes. Isn’t that bad for me?

No. Using a electronic cigarette is different. A regular cigarette must burn out, so you smoke a whole one. With Seminole Unconquered electronic cigarettes and cigars, you may feel like you are smoking more, but you actually aren’t because you’re puffing over a more extended time period.
The taste is slightly sweeter than a traditional cigarette. Why is this?

Unlike smoke from a traditional cigarette, vapor has no bitterness because nothing is burning. No burning = No bitterness.
What ingredients are in an electronic cigarette or cigar?

Electronic Cigarettes and cigars have just four basic ingredients:

Vaporizing fluid (Propylene Glycol)
Distilled water
Natural flavors and essential oils
Nicotine

All ingredients are approved for human consumption.
What is an Electronic CIgarette?

Electronic Cigarettes are a new technology that offers a real alternative to smoking dangerous tobacco cigarettes. It is a smarter alternative to smoking because there is no tobacco combustion. Safecig has no smoke, no tar, no ash and no bad smell. Yes, Electronic Cigarettes and Cigars have nicotine to satisfy the craving for a cigarette however it does not have the health dangers related to inhaling highly toxic cigarette smoke.
What is propylene glycol? (PG)

“PG” is primarily a food additive used in thousands of products. It is a glycerin product that is refined for human consumption. PG is a natural germicide, easily biodegradable and is a preferred mixing compound for most pharmaceutical and vitamin pills. PG and water mix very well which is why it makes such great vapor.

What is that smoke coming from my Safecig?

Our electronic cigarettes have no flame, does not burn and makes no smoke. What you are seeing is a fine water vapor mist produced in a similar process to most FDA approved inhalers.

Cigarettes, on the other hand, have 4000 identified cancer causing chemicals in them when they burn (tar, benzene, formaldehyde and worst of all carbon monoxide) creating smoke. Some of the fumes that come out of your car are in found in tobacco cigarettes.
