We are among the fastest growing Vape brands in Canada that focuses on the sales, distribution and development of Smoke Free Technology. In a nutshell, we promote alternatives to traditional analog cigarettes.
City Vaper was born out of necessity. We were frustrated having to place orders from multiple stores or vendors to get what we needed, tired of being gouged by vendors charging way over retail, and discouraged by companies who knew nothing about battery safety or couldn’t be bothered to return an e-mail.
The City Vaper team is passionate about our industry and the customers we serve. Customer centric service and quality products are the hallmark of our culture. We love this industry and the community we serve!
Electronic cigarettes (also known as e-cigarettes or personal vaporizers) are an alternative to tobacco cigarettes. They are battery-operated devices that create a mist or vapor that is inhaled instead of smoke. The rechargeable battery powers a heating element called an "atomizer." The element uses low heat to turn liquid in the cartridge, which contains propylene glycol, glycerin, food flavoring and nicotine, into a fog-like mist. There are many models of e-cigarettes available. Some look like traditional cigarettes, others look similar to a pen and some even look like small flashlights. Some have LED lights, some have built-in liquid reservoirs, others have combined atomizer cartridges, some are tubular and some are even rectangular boxes. They come in all shapes and sizes and have different features for former smokers who wish to distance themselves from anything resembling a traditional cigarette or want a longer battery life and/or better performance.
While anything containing nicotine cannot be called 100% safe, evidence from numerous studies strongly suggests that they are magnitudes safer than tobacco cigarettes. Harm reduction experts can point to research supporting that switching from cigarettes to a smokefree product will reduce health risks to less than 1% of smoking traditional cigarettes - nearly the same as non-smokers. For tobacco harm reduction health professionals, it is misleading and irresponsible for public health officials to tell smokers that smokeless products, such as e-cigarettes, are "not a safe alternative to smoking" simply because they are "only" 99% safer and not 100% safe.
Though testing by the FDA and some researchers have discovered trace amounts of tobacco-specific nitrosamines, which are known to cause cancer with high exposure, the amounts found were extremely low and unlikely to cause cancer. To put it in perspective, an e-cigarette contains nearly the exact same trace levels of nitrosamines as the FDA-approved nicotine patch and about 1,300 times less nitrosamines than a Marlboro cigarette. This means that e-cigarettes would not be any more likely to cause cancer than FDA-approved nicotine gums, patches or lozenges.
Traveling with e-cigaretes and vape devices is perfectly fine as the “system” knows what they are, but FAA requests that all battery products must be kept in carry on luggage. Put them though security the same you put your cell phone, and remember to keep them separate, and keep the juices and used tanks (must be emptied before going inside airplane) in ziplock bags. Airlines, Airport and Transport By law, any transport contractor can establish their own regulations applicable to their own vehicles or air-planes. Some airlines prohibit e-cigarette use, and some permit it and sell their own products in-flight. Most airports allow usage of vapor products, but do look for signs specifically restricting vaping. These airports typically have designated areas for vaping. Do not fly with full tanks as the change in air pressure will cause leaks. Be sure to pack e-juice and used clearomziers in a ziplock bag. Vaping inside an airline is an absolute no-no, unless the airline speifically allows their usage. You can cause a hoax or create trouble for flight attendants and pilots, as the sensitive alarm systems within airplanes may confuse the heavy vapor for smoke. And lastly, dont forget the charger!
