I figured I would make a sticky on some general rules/topic guidelines.
1. Any links that lead to pay sites will be removed.
2. Any links not related to this subreddit will be removed
3. Any one starting flame wars/witch hunts etc will receive a temp ban from the sub and subsequent occurrences will result in removal from the sub.
When submiting a link please do so in this fashion and it will make it easier for people to find, quote and/or reference.

If the aforemention submission is a post found somewhere else on reddit please format as such:
[DATE]Article Title [publication/author/source][X-POST: subreddit]
We are open to suggestions for rules/guides and I will be working on an AutoMod bot in a few days. Let me know what you guys want.
Do you use an e-cigarette in addition to a traditional tobacco cigarette? We know that companies have been advertising e-cigarettes as better than tobacco cigarettes. Is this true?
We want to find out the pros and cons of e-cigarettes. We want to know the different things that happen to your body when you smoke an e-cigarette versus when you smoke a tobacco cigarette.
We are looking for paid volunteers to help us find out more about e-cigarettes. This study involves 2 visits to the UCSF Tobacco Research Center, 8 outpatient days (at home), and 8 days at San Francisco General Hospital.
You will be compensated up to $2,030 for your time.
If you are interested, please fill out the following short online survey: https://redcap.ucsf.edu/surveys/?s=2YuB56Vc8P
Men and Women
Age: 21 yrs and older
This study observes nicotine exposure and the safety of electronic cigarettes.
This study requires 2 clinic visits, 8 outpatient days, and 8 inpatient days for a total of 16 days.
Compensation up to $2,030.
Please leave your name (spell it), phone number, number of cigarettes smoked per day, brand name of cigarette (include full flavor or lights), brand of electronic cigarettes and the best time to reach you.
For more information, please call the UCSF Tobacco Research Clinic Recruitment Line: fill out this short online survey [https://redcap.ucsf.edu/surveys/?s=2YuB56Vc8P]
I ordered a smok x cube mini and have had it only a week and I'll hit it for less then 2 seconds and a screen pops up and says low battery , it does this continuously with fully charged and brand new batteries .. The weird thing is the image of the battery on the main screen shows its fully charged . I've used the Sony and Samsung batteries which are reviewed as the best batteries , but it doesn't make sense why a brand new mod and batteries are doing this , any advice ?
iStick.org have come out with a Lot of New Devices in a Short Period of Time..! Wouldn't Mind Having The 30w One, But Not having a Removable Battery is a Deal Breaker for me. But I suppose this unit has a place in the eCig Market. I'm Glad I got my Eleaf iStick 50W for only $49.9 ,that is a happy day !!!
Which is super disappointing since so many of us vapers want to be smart about what we vape and stay on top of new findings, regardless of whether they like prove rayon is actually bad for you or something. Is there another sub I'm missing?
Introduction: Electronic cigarettes (ECIGs) electrically heat and vaporize a liquid solution to produce an inhalable nicotine-containing aerosol. Normally the electrical heater is fed the liquid via an automatic wick system. Some ECIG users, however, elect to directly drip liquid onto an exposed heater coil, reportedly for greater vapor production and throat hit. Use of such “direct drip atomizers” (DDAs) may involve greater exposure to non-nicotine toxicants due to the potentially higher temperatures reached by the coil. In this study we examined nicotine and volatile aldehyde (VA) emissions from one type of DDA under various use scenarios, and measured heater temperature.
Methods: Aerosols were machine-generated from an NHALER(TM) 510 Atomizer powered by an eGo-T battery (JoyetechTM), using a common PG-based liquid and a fixed puffing regimen. Inter-drip interval (IDI), the number of puffs drawn between replenishing the liquid on the coil, was varied from 2-4 puffs/drip. Total particulate matter, nicotine, and VA yields were quantified. Heater temperature was monitored using an infrared camera.
Results: Depending on the condition, VA emissions, including formaldehyde, greatly exceeded values previously reported for conventional ECIGs and combustible cigarettes, both per puff and per unit of nicotine yield. Increasing the IDI resulted in greater VA emissions, and lower TPM and nicotine yields. Maximum heater coil temperature ranged from 130°C to more than 350°C.
Conclusions: Due to the higher temperatures attained, DDAs are inherently likely to produce high toxicant emissions. The diversity of ECIG use methods, including potential off-label methods, should be considered as ECIG regulatory efforts proceed.
I haven't read this yet so I don't know what a "direct drip atomizer" is but it's not an RDA. Based on what I see on NHALER's site, these are just old bridged atomizers that everyone stopped using 3-4 years ago.
E-cigarettes are frequently advertised and portrayed in the media as less harmful compared with regular cigarettes. Earlier surveys reported public perceptions of harms to people using e-cigarettes; however, public perceptions of harms from exposure to secondhand vapour (SHV) have not been studied. We examined associations between self-reported exposure to e-cigarette advertising, media coverage, and interpersonal discussion and perceived harms of SHV.
The ultimate result was incredibly unsurprising: wider exposure to information/media about ENDDs and talking to ENDDs users resulted in lowered perception of harm from secondhand vapor, whereas negative ads/media and lack of talking to ENDDs users resulted in a higher perceived risk from secondhand vapor.
This is the actual summary of the study results:
Exposure to information about e-cigarettes through advertising, media coverage and interpersonal discussion could play a role in shaping public perceptions of the harmfulness of SHV.
Literally no surprise there. But this is the first study I'm aware of that used a nationwide survey to gather a representative cohort in the US, whereas others have been conducted in the UK and Europe previously. If I were working marketing in an ENDD manufacturing company (or juice company), I'd do anything I could to get more information out there in front of eyeballs, as this study would lead one to believe it would swing public discourse over to the positive side.
