Vuse Solo Review

Our rating: 4.3 out of 5                                    Cost: $

Pros

  • Low cost
  • Leaves a long lasting taste and really hits the throat
  • Decent battery life

Cons

  • Batteries are known to malfunction

If you are looking for a low cost, easy to use e-cigarette then the Vuse Solo is a great option. It has a classy look and feel and really provides the kick you would want from an e-cig that leaves a lasting taste.

Design

Made with a metal body, the Vuse Solo has a classy, sleek body that will make other e-cigs jealous. When you hold it between your fingers, it certainly gives you a wonderful feeling. For its price, the design of the e-cig is certainly top-notch. It has an elegant black cartridge that matches well with the metal exterior and a ring in the middle that lights up either green or red. You won’t find a more elegant looking e-cig in this price range so it really hits the spot as far as design goes.

Another feature that really puts it apart from other e-cigs in its price range is the strong and sturdy build of the Vuse Solo. The fact that it employs metal instead of plastic should already tell you that it is built to last. It locks securely and should last as long as the higher end e-cigs in the market. Which is quite remarkable since it is priced so low.

Vaping experience

The Vuse Solo is easy to use, it’s as simple as plugging in the cartridge and taking a hit. It has a light on the tip which allows you to gauge the battery life, notifying you when it is low on battery. As far as vapor production goes, you can’t really compare it to the higher end kits. However, when you compare it to other e-cigs in its price range than the Vuse Solo is pretty much on par. A inhale of around 4 seconds will provide you with enough vapor to blow smokes and its thickness is quite consistent. It really stands out as compared to others in its class when it comes to the hit it gives your throat when you inhale. But beware, the added hit is due to the high content of nicotine the e-cig allows for, which is something you should definitely consider. Overall, the vaping experience is on par with other e-cigs in the same price range.

Our verdict

The Vuse Solo is a decent e-cig that provides a punch with every drag. The downside to that is the added intake of nicotine which makes it more dangerous than even normal cigarettes. If you want a well-designed e-cig that provides consistent, thick smoke and aren’t too bothered by the added nicotine intake then this is definitely the e-cig for you. You won’t find any other e-cig in this price range that provides you with what you need.…

In order to perform a vape tornado, you will need a paper towel roll besides your vape or hookah. This will initially require a lot of practice, it isn’t easy as it requires concentration and a bit more than just blowing the smoke out a certain way. Here are the steps to blowing a vape tornado.

Imperial Hookah Pen Reviews

With so many alternatives to cigarette replacement products we are sometimes spoilt for choice when looking for something that is suitable to our likes and needs. I look at different options that included e-cigarettes, vaporizers, chewing gum and other items. I visited a shop that specialized in sales of these items specifically and decided to get hold of an imperial hookah pen. To my amazement I was quite impressed with my first experience with this little smoking wonder. I always noticed the colorful disposable e cigs while buying my weekly stash of cigarettes and felt keen to try it. I have wanted to quit smoking for the last year and knew that I would need a replacement product so that I could still experience the habit without all the harm. Here are my thoughts on the imperial hookah pen. Read more about the benefits of quitting smoking.

Packaging and appearance

First of all I have learnt that this is a popular item and that many people enjoyed smoking hookah pens. I wanted to know what all the hype was about. When I first encountered the product I fell in love with the colorful packaging and suddenly realized that it was disposable. This made it a cost efficient and enjoyable item. It actually looked like a pen which I found to be quite compact and easy to keep on me at all times. I have many friends that are hookah experts and that enjoy smoking it occasionally and they advised me to try the imperial hookah pen first which I did. The pen was easy to unwrap which turned out to be a bonus considering how hard it is to unwrap just about anything these days. I liked the feel of the item as it was light and convenient to smoke and really represented an easy habit to adapt to.

E-cigarette or not?

After using the pen for the first time I was impressed that it looked like a disposable with a bit of class. It was easy to start up and I could conveniently inhale and enjoy the experience. I opted to go for the minimal nicotine, no tar option. I love just about anything strawberry so all in all this will be my chosen flavor for my first vaporizing experience. It was awesome! It didn’t cost an arm and a leg and it provided me with a great first smoke. The best thing about it was that it was disposable and didn’t make me cough or feel lightheaded at all. There was obviously no head-rush to deal with this time around. The taste was awesome and the experience even better. Click here to learn more about how to smoke a hookah pen. This pen boasts of only 6mg nicotine and no tar or any other dangerous chemicals.

Is it worth it?

Yes absolutely, as the advert for these e-cigs would boast I was actually able to get 600 puffs out of my imperial hookah pen. That is a lot of puffs for very little money and what really impressed me was that there was no difference in flavor from the first time that I used it. It stayed remarkably fresh and kept on tasting, looking and feeling like a real cigarette even though it was a completely different experience for me.  Read more about the benefits of smoking e-cigs.

Conclusion

The imperial hookah pen is a great product for those that enjoy smoking hookah and more especially for those that are looking for a bang for the buck e-cigarette experience. If you are one of the many that enjoy smoking hookah occasionally but don’t enjoy visiting a hookah lounge for example this is a great product that you can enjoy anywhere and best of all in the comfort of your own home. With up to 600 puffs you will enjoy the freedom and diversity that this product offers you. As previously mentioned it also looks great and actually feels and tastes like a real cigarette but will never cost you as much as real cigarettes would so make sure you get hold of one of these pens to enjoy a different way of smoking. It is amazing to see how much money one can save by giving up smoking and the best part is you can still enjoy an inhalation experience that won’t release half the chemicals that you normally are exposed to with normal cigarettes. Before lighting up you should considering plugging in.

I would say that with so many products in the market that have been specifically manufactured to replace cigarettes I have a respect for hookah and would lean toward this option the most because it has been around for over 700 years and have been smoked by Middle Easterners for centuries. The benefit of starting hookah instead of smoking cigarettes is that it has a great social following and that there are many lounges that cater just for people that enjoy hookah so it obviously is something that can be enjoyed with friends or on your own in the comfort of your own home. There is a reason why people from ancient times chose to smoke hookah and why there weren’t as many cases of lung cancer or asthma back then. It must have been a healthier choice that was only done on occasion and generally something that brought people together. I have now become part of the hookah community and with many other enthusiasts we are trying and trading different flavors while also enjoying the odd disposable pen now and then. I don’t think I will ever go back to smoking actual cigarettes again as it made me feel a lot unhealthier and it really cost me a lot more.…

There are so many to choose from where in the olden days gum that contained nicotine was the most popular choice. It is no secret that the popularity of hookah has gone up quite a bit. Hookah is a water pipe that can be used to smoke an herbal mixture or perhaps tobacco depending on your preference. The pipe has a long tube through which smoke is inhaled. This form of smoking has been around for many years and originates from the Middle East. It is a form of social smoking and offers many different kinds of mixtures to use. Today you can find fruity and candy flavored options that are quite enjoyable.

According to the same survey that has been conducted they have found that 17% of high school students actually smoke hookah.

Most people that smoke hookah are convinced that it is not addictive where in fact it has been proven that it is not as addictive as cigarettes.  It is said by specialists that as with any habit you need to curb how much you smoke though as it would completely defeat the purpose of trying to cut down on cigarettes and then attending a hookah session that lasts up to several hours. Experts say that it also largely depends on which mixtures you smoke while enjoying hookah. Some of the mixtures contain a large amount of nicotine which means smoking it would cause the equivalent of smoking up to 10 cigarettes per day. When going to a hookah lounge make sure to spend only a few sessions inside as you will be exposed to a lot of smoke. Take a look here at other ways to enjoy hookah at home. It is true that hookah is a great social tool and can make a party so much better but try and refrain from smoking any mixtures that has a high nicotine volume in order to really benefit from hookah.

Hookah smoking is an old tradition that has been around for over 700 years which means it deserves some respect as an option to replace cigarette smoking and with some incentive you won’t end up spending a fortune on it as you would on regular cigarettes. This once again proves that to make it worth your while to dump the cigarettes and to start hookah you should perhaps start slow and try all the different herbal mixes that are available. Find time to enjoy it and make sure that you don’t smoke too often because as with everything in life too much of a good thing really isn’t good. Young people are lured to hookah because of the social atmosphere and the fun of it and yes it would seem like a better alternative to smoking. As a smoker I remember that I started smoking for social reasons and that in the beginning it really was a social thing until I found myself unable to wake up in the morning without having a cigarette or two. I have found that smoking hookah has helped me to get rid of the cigarettes as I personally smoke much less hookah then cigarettes. I also enjoy trying out different mixtures and finding what I like the most. I personally enjoy the fruity mixtures as it really tastes and smells great and honestly I don’t feel like I have to have it as often as I used to have cigarettes on a daily basis.

The general consensus is that you can get addicted to hookah if you smoke brands that contain a lot of nicotine or chemicals and that you might also be addicted to the social environment that goes hand in hand with hookah. The best thing after all is to not smoke anything at all and to keep yourself occupied with healthier and better habits. Many smokers swear by hookah and say that they were able to stop smoking cigarettes thanks to this ancient smoking tradition. Everything is so readily available today that it is sometimes hard not to try something for the first time. It is better to find good and wholesome hobbies rather than to get lost inside a hookah den while looking for new mixtures to explore.…

  • Take a long trail of shisha without inhaling
  • Slowly open your mouth

Effects of Hookah Smoking

Doing a French inhale might be fun, but I thought it would give you some light on some of the effects of hookah through smoking so it would not be a habit that would harm your health.

Mood fluctuations influence the central nervous system

Many believe that Hookah smoking is much better than smoking cigarettes, because tobacco like the one you smoked from a water pipe is mixed with water. For this reason, the effect for water pipes would be less. It is a myth. The truth is that the water hose brings more side effects to your body.
Nicotine is usually very good for the taste of smokers, so people will find it so hard to stop smoking. Nicotine reaches the brain in seconds and makes you feel more energetic for a while. But as this effect diminishes, you feel tired and hurt more. That is why you want to feel how you feel when you have smoked hookah so you start smoking more often to feel good, unknowing that you are becoming a shisha addict and you cannot stop because the withdrawal symptoms are more difficult, especially if one cannot afford to seek professional help.

Cancer

Irritation which is caused by use of tobacco or juices from tobacco will increases your chances getting oral cancer. Hookah smoking will have more effects than cigar burners or those using water pipes. Tobacco and smoke tubes contain many toxic substances known to cause lung cancer, bladder cancer and oral cancer. A typical 1-hour session of the smoke line makes the user consume as much as a hundred to two hundred times the volume of smoke from a single cigarette

Conclusion

You can have fun by doing French inhalation, but do not forget that this should not be a habit as the health risks are higher.…

How to Use a Hookah

Effects of Hookah Smoking

Shisha is usually taken a group, whereby a single mouthpiece is passed from one person to the other. Water pipes are used to prepare specially designed tobacco, which is usually seasoned. They are also called a number of different names, including hookah, argileh, shisha, Hubble bubble and Goza. Tobacco is no less toxic in a water pipe like a cigarette, and the water in the water pipe does not filter the toxic ingredients in the tobacco smoke. Water pipe smoking can actually inhale more smoke than cigarette smokers due to the large smoke that breathe in the smoke session which can last as long as 60 minutes. So forget the myth that hookah is less harmful than cigarettes, the best thing for your health is to stay away from both Hookah and cigarettes.

Here are some of the side effects caused by the water pipe –

Nausea and cough

Inhalation can cause excessive coughing or spit, and coughing can also occur if someone is blowing smoke on the face. The World Health Organization said that smokers tend to smoke until they meet their needs and know when they have to stop in order to avoid nausea. Water pipe has more nicotine,  this can cause a person to smoke and does not know when to stop as it turns addictive. This can lead to abdominal pain or nausea.

Cancer

Irritation caused by exposure to tobacco juice increases the risk of developing oral cancer. It is likely that shisha will get more effects than cigar smokers or those that use water pipe. Coal, which is used to heat tobacco in water pipes, increases health risks. Even after passing through water containing smoke produced by a water pipe, high levels of toxic compounds, including carbon monoxide, heavy metals and carcinogenic chemicals. Tobacco and smoke pipe contains many toxic substances, which are known to cause lung, bladder, and oral cancer. A typical one hour session of smoking water pipe makes the user 100 to 200 times the volume of smoke from a single cigarette

Dizziness and dehydration (headache)

Potential dizziness can occur during an experience of smoking water pipe, or may occur after the smoking, just as the person stops smoking from the water pipe and stands up one might experience some effect of lightheadedness or slight headache. Dehydration briefly kicks in if the person is not drinking enough water before smoking the water pipe. Dizziness happens because smoking water pipe can be a pleasant experience, and those who first attempt to try the water pipe, can end up taking in too much of the vapor and this will eventually cause dehydration.

Nicotine affects blood flow to the genital areas

Smoking can reduce the levels of sex hormones in men and women. This can cause a decrease in sexual desire. For women, it can lead to sexual dissatisfaction which is as a result of reduced lubrication and achieving the ability to reach orgasm becomes impossible, this is hell to actually go through this if you are a woman why subject yourself to such form of torture that you can just easily avoid by ensuring you are not using Hookah. While in men, this can reduce sexual performance, which then again brings another problem to a man. With low performance you will lose confidence and can lead to break ups among couples.

Mood swings as it affects the central nervous system (addiction)

Many believe that smoking a water pipe is much better than smoking because tobacco as the one smoked via water pipe is mixed with water. For this reason, the effect would be less for water pipe. This is a myth the truth is that the water pipe brings more side effects on your body.

What is a Hookah Pen?

A Hookah pen is a device similar to an electronic cigarette. It uses a heating element to vaporize a liquid flavoring that is then inhaled. The Hookah pen has the same basic components as an electronic cigarette which consist of a cartridge, an atomizer (heating element), and a battery. The cartridge holds the liquid flavoring (e-liquid) and is also the mouthpiece where the vapor is inhaled from. When the battery is turned on (usually a lithium ion battery) it turns on the heating element which heats up the liquid, turning it into vapor.

The Hookah pen is commonly referred to as a Shisha pen, or E Shisha (electronic Shisha). As well as the components it shares with an electronic cigarette, the Hookah pen is equipped with an LED light function that indicates when the Hookah pen is on and when a puff is taken. A microprocessor is in control of the LED indicator and the heating element.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Many people hear the words Hookah or Shisha pen and associate it with the popularized Hookah pipe. A hookah pipe is a uniquely designed water pipe that is used to smoke various blends of tobacco. This is done by the combustion of dry, hookah tobacco. There is no combustion with a Hookah/Shisha pen because the liquid flavoring is being only being heated, there is no substances being burned like there are when you smoke Hookah.

Types of Hookah Pens

●Disposable Hookah/Shisha pens are designed for easy use without having to take the pen apart. The pens are portable and can be used anywhere that smoking is allowed. Prepackaged with different flavors, disposable Hookah pens typically offer between 250 and 500 puffs. The number of puffs can increase depending on the brand. A puff is measured by a one second drag from the hookah pen. Once the portable Hookah is used up, it can be disposed of without any problem.

●Rechargeable and refillable Hookah pens are made to come apart so that the cartridge can be refilled with the e-liquid when there is no more. The heating coil inside of the atomizer can be replaced too, as they do not tend to last very long. Rechargeable and refillable Hookah/Shisha pens can last for a long time with the proper care. Charging your Hookah pen can vary depending on the brand of your device. There will be instructions with your purchase to describe how to properly take it apart and how to charge it.

●Starter kits are made for your convenience when it comes to just learning to smoke Hookah or for maintaining your Hookah/Shisha pen.

Various brands will include less or more of the different materials needed for a Hookah pen.

Are Hookah Pens Bad for You?

When it comes to smoking Hookahs, Hookah pens are less harmful than smoking cigarettes which involves burning and combustion. However, this does not mean that it is overall a healthy choice. Some Hookah pens or flavoring liquids can contain nicotine. Nicotine is an addictive substance that is known to contain thousands of harmful toxins and chemicals. The liquid flavorings that do in fact contain nicotine offer various amounts of it ranging from 6 mg to 18 mg. If you are looking for an alternative to smoking cigarettes, smoking Hookah/Shisha pens that contain nicotine is not going to help you stop quitting if that is the goal when smoking Hookah.

As well as possibly containing nicotine, flavoring liquid has other compounds in it. Propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, distilled water, and flavoring (the flavoring is mostly made from dry herbs).

Propylene glycol is a common ingredient in many products and has been certified as safe by the FDA, it has a very low toxicity level. The only issue is that it can be an irritant to some people.

Vegetable glycerin is also a common ingredient in many products from food to cosmetics. It is also verified safe by the FDA and the only downfall is if you happen to have an allergy to it.

Overall, the long term effects of smoking Hookah are not known. As mentioned above, it is safer than smoking cigarettes. However, there are always risks of obtaining a viral respiratory infection as there is with any substance that is being inhaled.
