The Holiday Season is in full-swing. Between visits with family, work parties and shopping… it can be hard to squeeze all of that in. To help ease the stress of the holidays, we’re pleased to bring you “12 Days of Nicotek” this year. Each day for the next 12 days will feature a 1-day-only promotion for www.metroecigs.com and www.fazevapor.com.
December is here, which means there’s one more reason to quit smoking: it’s getting too cold to enjoy burning one outside. I’d rather not bundle up for seven minutes of dubious pleasure, thank you very much! The following products from Metro e-Cigs do the trick and then some.
Metro King 1.8T Original
These really look, feel, and taste like traditional cigarettes. I especially like that this e-cig has a soft tip—not a hard plastic tip like most other e-cigs. One lasts me about two days, the same as a pack of cigarettes. Plus, I can start and stop “vaping” whenever I want. No more checking my watch to see if I’ve got enough time. And they’re disposable: No battery to recharge, no cartridge to replace. Everyone has different taste preferences, so try this one first if you want to check out Metro’s flavor. I plan to keep one on hand wherever I go this November.
Metro 1.8% Traditional Starter Kit
E-cig starter kits are a little more hands-on than disposables. You do have to charge the battery regularly, but if you plan ahead, this isn’t a problem. I charge my Metro every night, and it’s ready for me to use all day. The battery lasts a good long time between charges. This starter kit comes in a handy case, complete with USB charger and two 1.8% cartridges. It would be an especially good investment this November since the replacement cartridges come in packages of three and thirty six.
Metro STEALTH Designer Pack
The main perk with this e-cig designer pack is that it doesn’t light up the interior of your car like an e-cig. It’s November, it’s dark when I drive home from work, and I’m not too keen on the idea of getting pulled over for texting while driving. The battery features a digital camo pattern, and the case comes with a USB charger and room for an e-cigarette and two cartridges. The tip does light up red when the battery needs to be recharged and green when it’s done. If you like Metro’s flavor, get this or one of their other designer packs plus a thirty-six pack of cartridges. Overall, a well-thought-out design.
Metro ReCharge Pack
An excellent buy for the committed e-cig user, the Metro ReCharge Pack is a portable wall charger with an added bonus: You can recharge your e-cig battery even when you don’t have access to an electrical outlet. It looks like a pack of cigarettes, and it will charge a battery, store a full e-cig, and store up to three cartridges all at once. If you have to make an extended trip this November, take this recharger along.
A yummy alternative to the e-cigarette. I keep a few of these on-hand for friends who want to “vape” with me but dislike the tobacco flavor and nicotine content of the products I use. And, yes, I hit these myself from time to time. The taste is quite enjoyable, especially the peach—a perfect dessert for that big feast day in November.

Halloween used to be such a pain for smokers before e-cigs were developed. You had to make sure your costume wouldn’t go up in flames if you accidentally ashed on it. Nowadays, here in the future, you can vape at your leisure no matter what you are wearing. So have fun with it! Why not try one of these costume ideas and use your vape pen to complete your look?
Looking for a hip, spooky costume? Find yourself a fake pencil mustache and an old suit. Memorize some lines fromHouse of Wax or The Fly and make sure the party you will be attending plays “Thriller”. Everybody loves that song, and Vincent Price was always smoking. Use one of the cigarette look-alike vape pens for this costume.
Any good Clint Eastwood character you can think of smoked. Dirty Harry, The Man With No Name, even the old guy from Gran Torino. The choice comes down to how much you like wearing ponchos. It would be a fun touch to disguise your vape pen as Dirty Harry’s cigar. You just have to ask yourself, do you feel lucky?
The classic witch from the film, not the lame one from the musical. The Wicked Witch was always disappearing in a cloud of smoke. You can do your own special effects with your vape pen. As an added bonus, the hat makes you look taller.
This character doesn’t have a ton of name recognition, but obscure super heroes are all the rage now anyway. Besides, the look is so funny, you don’t need people to recognize it. You dress up as a chimpanzee the wears a deerslayer hat and a goofy sport coat, just like Sherlock Holmes. The best part? Detective Chimp loves smoking. What could be better than a vaping Detective Chimp?
Cruella De Vil is a guaranteed show stopper of a costume. She even has a theme song! With the wig and a little bit of stitching, you’ll be one of the most recognizable Disney villains. The trick will be fitting a vape pen into a cigarette holder, but a little bit of craftsmanship goes a long way. If this costume doesn’t scare you, no evil thing will! Carry along a couple Dalmatian plush toys and you will be all set.
Don’t worry that the movies didn’t turn out so great. A good Smaug will still amaze your friends. This costume might be a little hard to pull together. You will need a dragon suit, a ton of glitter and one hell of a mask. The payoff will be worth it though, because you can hide your vape pen inside the mask. Then you will be able to breath vapor through the nose of the mask and the effect will be like a dragon blowing smoke. That will definitely be a memorable party trick. You would probably win a couple of contests that way.
Contrary to popular belief, batteries require maintenance – even the small ones equipped inside your E-Cig. Just like larger batteries, your rechargeable e-cig battery can develop corrosion, which can cause damage, reduce performance, or eventually requiring a replacement to maintain a charge. Corrosion appears as a white crusty buildup, but regular maintenance and cleaning can prevent this corrosion from appearing and keep your e-cigarette in top shape.
Cleaning Your Battery: The Basics
Begin by identifying the housing and open it to inspect the threads for signs of any current corrosion. If there is currently corrosion, you will need to focus on these areas and make sure all signs of white corrosion are removed. If there are no signs of corrosion, focus on an overall cleaning of the battery and housing area.
The Cleaning Process
The process of cleaning the e-cigarette is simple and only requires one essential ingredient: rubbing alcohol. Use a cotton ball or q-tips to apply the rubbing alcohol as needed. Make sure not to soak the cotton ball or q-tip – a cursory cleaning is all that is required and flooding the chamber could cause problems of its own. Do not dip the ends in any kind of liquid; only use a cotton ball or q-tip to apply the rubbing alcohol to prevent damage.
Moisten your cotton ball or q-tip and focus on the places where corrosion is present. Gently swab at the crust until it is removed and continue cleaning the threads until all signs of crust is removed. If the cotton ball does not remove the buildup, a soft toothbrush can be used to gently remove the deposits. Follow up with a swipe of rubbing alcohol. The alcohol will break down deposits, even ones that are invisible to the human eye, and help prevent corrosion from forming.
After cleaning, allow all parts to air-dry for five minutes to ensure all the alcohol has evaporated. Now assemble your e-cig and enjoy a newly powered vape.
Tips for Battery Care and Cleaning
After cleaning your e-cig, replace the cartridge with a new one. You should notice increased performance and longevity, especially if corrosion was present. To further preserve your battery and prevent damage, check the battery threads every couple of weeks and clean connection points once a month.
You can also clean the charger connection but make sure the charger is unplugged before you begin cleaning. By cleaning all connection points, you can ensure corrosion or deposit buildup has not affected the performance of your e-cig.
E-cig batteries are meant to last and provide you with consistent performance and efficiency. Keep your battery charged and don’t store any batteries at less than 50% charge. By taking the time to inspect and clean your e-cigarette, it will continue to provide you with the most delicious vape wherever life may take you and anytime you need it.
