Max 300 Configuration 3pc & 2pc Review

With the Max E-Cig Brand.  The 300 is the entry level E-Cig but I tell you this thing performs better then most heavy hitters on the market. Just take a look above this thing is both a 3 part and a 2 part design . You dont get that with blu, njoy, greensmoke, smoke stick, valcano or any other major brand.

The cartomizer last about 450 puffs for me they say it should last 300 to 500 puffs but i have not made it to 500 but i tell you 450 is really great to me. With blu I get about 80 puffs before having to change my E-Cig cart.

The best thing about the max 300 is it let you choose the model configuration that is best for you and thats what I love about it. I give this a A+++

Max 300 E-Cigarette Pick of the Month. User Rating 9.2

The Max 300 E-Cigarette well what can we say this has to be one of the best e-cigs I have used. The max 300 is both a 3 pc or 2 pc e-cig. If that's not enough it also have optional drip tips. This little guy is a real game changer in the e-cig world. It uses the wall case that we have seen other e-cigs use in the past but make no mistake this is fair beyond the other ecigs on the market.

Vapor production = Great rating 9.5
Battery Life = Good rating about a 8.5
Flavor of Carts = Good 9.5

Price = Good 9.5

Why Electronic Cigarettes?

People often ask, what’s not good enough about what I smoke right now? Why would I want to make the jump to a fake cigarette? These are all valid questions, and they all have valid answers.
First, electronic cigarettes are not “Fake” cigarettes. They actually are a more “pure” form of smoking. Instead of inhaling all the smoke, carbon monoxide, and carcinogens, you get a vaporized form of nicotine. Doctors agree, it’s not nicotine that is dangerous, in fact, nicotine is very comparable to caffeine. Doctors know that it’s the smoke and carcinogens in cigarettes that cause health problems.
Depending on which e-cigarette you get, and your smoking style, electronic cigarettes may prove to be more cost effective. For example, Blu cigarettes sells 5 cartridges for $5. This is equivalent to about a pack and a half of traditional cigarettes. If you factor in that you get to select the nicotine level (The cigarettes with lower nicotine are more expensive at the store) and any flavor you might like, this is a great value.
E Cigs often have a reputation of being “not as good” of a smoking experience. This actually couldn’t be farther from the truth. The E-cigarette vapor is quite comparable to smoke, and because vapor is just as, if not more, effective at delivering nicotine, the same effects are felt as classic cigarettes. In their infancy, many people complained that e-cigs often ran out of battery. Today, all the ecigarettes utilize rechargeable high capacity lithium polymer batteries for extended use, and portable chargers to insure that your e-cigarette is always ready when you are.

Why You Should Consider the Benefits of an Electronic Cigarette

Thsmoking_largeousands of Americans struggle daily when they attempt to quit smoking cigarettes. Many have tried nicotine products to suppress the cravings and have still failed. This is often attributed to the fact that they are used to the act of smoking. Between the oral fixation and the social connection between people smoking together, many fail when they try giving these things up as they attempt to ease back on the nicotine. A new product called has been introduced that will help with cravings like these. The electronic cigarette takes the smoke out of the equation, while still providing the smoker with the same feeling of smoking. Let’s take a look at how anyone looking to quit smoking can benefit from this new technology.
The most obvious problems with cigarette consumption is the health and cosmetic downsides of the addiction. Smoking can lead to respiratory problems that are unrelated to the nicotine that is providing you with the buzz. When you look at the fact that the electronic cigarette removes all smoke from the equation, and simply provides you with a fix of nicotine vapor it becomes apparent how beneficial this can be. In addition to the health benefits, since no smoke is involved, the electronic cigarette will not leave your clothes smelling like smoke, nor stain your teeth. These cosmetic benefits can help increase self esteem and make you feel great.
Another one of the largest problems that smokers face is the ever rising price of a pack of cigarettes. Between the actual price of the product, and the addition of taxes to the equation, many Americans are considering giving up the habit just to save money. Electronic cigarettes drastically reduces the cost per smoke because they can be refilled and are not taxed nearly as heavily. Regardless of if you are considering the countless health benefits of smoking cessation, this new option can save you a lot of money in the long run.
When you factor in the money savings, the health benefits and the cosmetic advantages over smoking a traditional cigarette, it becomes clear why hundreds of Americans are trying the electronic cigarette on a daily basis. If you are looking to quit, or just reduce the harmful side effects of the addiction, an electronic cigarette is something that you should seriously consider investing in.

Health Benefits of Electronic Cigarettes

Electronic cigarettes are one of many breakthrough inventions recently which has managed to drastically change society. Cigarette smoking has turned into a serious issue over the past few years, and the number of smokers is rapidly increasing. The effect of smoking has caused problems not only for smokers, but also the people surrounding them. Cigarette smoking produces harmful gasses affecting the already deteriorating environment. Each year 400,000 smokers in America die from smoke related illnesses. Many areas in the United States have imposed smoking bans to deter people from smoking, and protect the environment. However, the number of new smokers continues to increase every year.
Electronic cigarettes, a chemical free alternative, have helped thousands quit smoking. Smoke is the main cause of most smokers’ health problems. Electronic cigarettes are smokeless devices which simulate smoking a traditional cigarette without the tobacco, tar and other harmful chemicals. They emit a vapor which eliminates the dangerous secondhand smoke. E-cigarettes have eased traditional smokers’ health concerns, and have also made them more acceptable.
Electronic cigarettes have emerged in large quantities with a number of multi-national manufacturers entering the business. They can considerably reduce the amount of nicotine consumed. Smokers can even choose electronic cigarettes without any nicotine at all. A major advantage is the fact that cigarette smokers have claimed they are finding it easy transitioning from regular cigarettes to electronic cigarettes.
Cigarette smokers have always ignored the warnings about health issues that are caused by smoking tobacco. A transition to e cigarettes will definitely reduce the effect of tobacco which will allow them to live a longer happier life. Another advantage of e cigs is that they will save smokers quite a bit of money. Unlike traditional tobacco cigarettes, electronic cigarettes cost about $2.50 per pack. A single cartridge of e cigs lasts the equivalent of two packs of regular cigarettes. Considering e cigarette’s benefits for both smokers and their loved ones, it is definitely a worthy decision switching.

Understading State Smoking Bans

Smoking bans of one form or another are now in place for several states in our country. Although there is not a federal nationwide smoking ban, bans in the United States have been popping up under state, local, and health laws. The degree of the ban varies depending on each state and city. Several places have not yet imposed any bans, and some have bans in certain areas and not others.  According to the American Nonsmokers’ Rights Foundation, 71% of the country holds a statewide smoking ban in the workplace, and/or either restaurants or bars. The following states have a ban in the workplace, restaurants, and bars: Arizona, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, Washington, and Wisconsin. The following states have a ban in restaurants and bars: California, Colorado, Connecticut, New Hampshire, New Mexico, and North Carolina. The following states have bans in workplaces and restaurants: Florida, Louisiana, and Nevada. The following states have a ban only in the
workplace: North Dakota, Pennsylvania, and South Dakota. Idaho has a smoking ban only in restaurants. Smoking bans have been put in place in all restaurants and bars in each of the following most populated cities: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Phoenix, San Diego, Dallas, San Jose, Detroit, San Francisco, Austin, Columbus, Charlotte, Boston, Baltimore, El Paso, Seattle, Denver, Milwaukee, Washington, Louisville, Portland,  Tucson, Albuquerque, Kansas City, Fresno, Sacramento, Long Beach, Mesa, Omaha, Cleveland, Oakland, Raleigh, Colorado Springs, Minneapolis, Honolulu, Wichita, St. Louis, New Orleans, Santa Ana, Anaheim, Cincinnati, Aurora, Bakersfield, and Toledo.
A few places ban smoking in certain outdoor spaces. Although no state has a ban in all public outdoor places, some local towns do. Outdoor areas include areas such as parks, beaches, and some areas within outdoor stadiums. Several states have their own unique bans. Georgia, for example, bans smoking in restaurants where people aged 18 and under can enter.  New Hampshire bans smoking in restaurants, bars, and schools, but state law prohibits local governments from imposing their own smoking bans. Local governments in North Carolina may impose smoking bans that are stricter than the state laws. 11 states (Alabama, Alaska, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, West Virginia, and Wyoming) have not imposed any state wide laws that ban smoking. They instead require some business owners to post signs that designate smoking and non-smoking areas.  26 states have statewide bans in all enclosed public places. Some of those states exempt tobacconists (expert dealers in tobacco), and allow hotels and motels to designate a certain percentage of their rooms as smoking rooms.
While the smoking bans have limited the places smokers can actually smoke, thousands have turned to electronic cigarettes to quit traditional cigarettes altogether. Electronic cigarettes are a clean chemical free alternative to smoking traditional cigarettes. Ecigs emit vapor instead of smoke which enables them to be omitted from the majority of the smoking bans

What Airports Prohibit E Cigarettes?

Many people are wondering about electronic cigarettes in airports. Most airports are now smoke free facilities, and do not permit smoking anywhere. Some have designated areas outside the buildings at certain terminals, but these are before you reach security. A TSA blog written by a TSA employee was happy to inform electronic cigarette smokers that they are permitted to carry on their e cigs as well as their accessories. However, he suggests asking permission at the airport as well as on the airplanes if vaping is allowed. Another suggestion is to bring your electronic cigarette paperwork along to show attendants and security officials if they have any questions. Many people are still unaware of what electronic cigarettes
even are. Green smoke provides a card stating that the product is not a cigarette, but an electronic cigarette. Recently, an electronic cigarette user questioned Southwest Airlines about carrying his e cig onto their plane. The representative searched through their restricted items, and found electronic cigarettes are not included on the list. They claimed that they were considered a portable electronic, and they did not see any reason why they should not be approved to carry on. Another user asked a flight attendant if she could smoke her electronic cigarette on the plane. The attendants did not even know what an e cig was. The flight attendant asked the cabin crew, and none of them knew if they were permitted. They did state they would ask at their next monthly meeting, and told the passenger to go into the bathroom because, “what you do in the bathroom is your business”. The passenger proceeded to vape in the bathroom, and the crew actually came in to witness the fact that there is not an odor and minimal vapor. Another user recently contacted 3 airlines, the TSA, and obtained an FAA regulations handbook. The airlines all said the e cig was permitted in carry on bags, but could not state whether they were permitted to be used on planes. The TSA stated that electronic cigarettes are permitted in carry on bags. The FAA handbook did not state anything about electronic cigarette use as being prohibited. Our suggestion, to be on the safe side, is to contact the airport and airline to ensure that you are allowed to carry on your electronic cigarettes.
