Valiant-C Full Electronic Cigarette Starter Kit

Valiant-C Full Electronic Cigarette Starter Kit

Comments (0)

Electronic Cigarettes have hit the UK in storm over recent years, Mainly sourced from China, a huge range of Starter Kits are available to people looking to take up the "Vaping" culture which is becoming extremely popular.  This is however a minefield as Vibrant Vapours, A Swansea based Electronic Cigarette Supplier suggests.

Electronic cigarettes have been developed to provide traditional cigarette smokers with the feeling of smoking, but without the dangerous side effects which come from the burning of tobacco. An electronic cigarette's battery powers an atomizer which heats a liquid. This liquid contains Nicotine, propylene glycol & vegetable glycerine to create a smoke like vapour. This vapour uses the liquid combined with food dye flavourings to provide an experience similar to smoking a traditional cigarette, but without the harmful by-products. Propylene glycol is the base liquid which provides the "hit" this has been deemed to be "safe" by the world health organisation. It is also used in a number of products ranging from asthmatic nebulisers to smoke machines in night clubs and even foods. So why does the end result differ so much?

Well we all know the Electronic Cigarette market is full of companies who offer "cheap" electronic cigarettes. We cannot say they are all bad but to give you an insight, our personal testing from 120 of the 170 factories (in a 20 mile radius of Shenzhen, China) revealed only 2 producers that were right for our brand the 118 other has (in our opinion) sub-standard products which although looked exactly the same, did not function very well at all.

The products we found are not the cheapest by far but it worries us as a company how "Low Cost" some of the electronic cigarettes are and if they are infact CE and Rohs Certified like ours are.  We receieve many customers with complaints from poor quality starter kits that only wish to have a high standard product. We have however converted these people who are now happy with the Vibrant Vapours Brand.

Our advice is to go middle of the road when sourcing yours, research the market, our Valiant-C Starter Kit is the flagship on offer at only £59.99 is contains 2 complete electronic cigarettes, chargers, atomisers and nicotine it is great value, we even have customers at the evening post.  These kits range from £30-£70 in the market and we are asking people to keep quality in mind when buying one.

We would like to hear your feedback on Electronic Cigarettes, have you experienced a poor quality product and have you been put off at all?

    Dick-e you really need to get your facts right before having a go at people who are trying to improve their lives for the better. Yes we are addicts, but we are trying to help ourselves in a way that actually works. Personally I have been slowly reducing my nicotine intake, and my next step is to cut it out all together! Vaping is not a tobacco substitute, it is a nicotine replacement. A large proportion of us do not want anything to do with tobacco and prefer flavours as far removed from cigarettes as possible. My ecig looks nothing like a cigarette and I wouldn't use one that did. Vaping is completely different to smoking, although most of us come to it trying to get away from cigarettes. I don't do illegal drugs, drink alcohol or caffeine and lead an active, healthy life, made all the better for not smoking and inhaling those thousands of harmful chemicals found in cigarettes and I do not understand why you have such an aggresive attitude to people like me who are trying to make their lives better for themselves and those around them. It is almost as if you feel threatened in some way-you don't work for a pharmaceutical company do you? :-D

    Dick All things in excess are UNHEALTHY, certain things are HEALTHIER in moderated quantities and delivered through alternative methods (Ie the Patch, Gum, Ecigs) I would also like to point out over the last 10 years, studies have found Nicotine is very beneficial in increasing cognitive abilities in older people, people who have used nicotine, have a lesser chance of developing Alzheimer's... "Nicotine is structurally similar to acetylcholine, a naturally-occurring compound that serves as a neurotransmitter. Nicotine binds to nerve receptors and makes nerve cells fire more frequently. In one study, a group of Alzheimer's patients were given nicotine patches, while another received a placebo. Those with nicotine patches maintained their cognitive abilities longer and sometimes even recovered lost cognitive function. A follow-up study indicated that nicotine may also boost cognitive abilities in elderly people who aren't suffering from Alzheimer's but who are experiencing the typical mental decline associated with old age." "In 2000, a study performed at Stanford revealed surprising results about nicotine's effects on blood vessels. Contrary to popular opinion, the study showed that nicotine actually boosts the growth of new blood vessels. The discovery may lead to new treatments for diabetes." "In 2000, a study performed at Stanford revealed surprising results about nicotine's effects on blood vessels. Contrary to popular opinion, the study showed that nicotine actually boosts the growth of new blood vessels. The discovery may lead to new treatments for diabetes." "Nicotine may carry some health benefits with it, but the problem has been "the delivery system," says Don deBethizy. DeBethizy is the CEO of Targacept, a biotech company spun off from R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company and dedicated to researching nicotine-related drugs [Source: Wired]. No one should take up smoking, chewing tobacco or the patch for their health, especially those suffering from pre-existing medical conditions. The challenge is for scientists to find a way to derive medications from nicotine" (The newest delivery system is the ECIG!) "It may be years before we see any nicotine-derived drugs on the market. Taking a drug from research to market can take hundreds of millions of dollars and years of work -- not to mention many trial stages and governmental approval. Even so, one day we may look at nicotine like we do opium, foxglove and nightshade. In one form, they're highly dangerous substances; in another, they're vital, even life-saving, medical treatments." http://tinyurl.com/4ydwrmj --- this article is VERY informative. I would also like to point out, there is no scientific definition of ADDICTION.

    I have tried quite a few electronic ciagrettes in my time, some terrible and some great. I think as e-cigs have become more popular they have become more accessible. You see incredibly cheap ones being sold in supermarkets or on the local high street. These types are generally really low quality and I have not had good experiences with these before. The specialist online retailers such as http://tinyurl.com/atqxtc3 and Vibrant Vapours is where you can find much more quality. Of course there are some terrible online retailers too but less so than the cheap supermarket e-cigs. I suggest anyone considering buying an electronic cigarette really researches, stay away from highstreet retailers, supermarkets, ebay, etc and look for a respected online retailer who knows their stuff. The difference between a good quality e-cig and a cheap one is really quite a lot. Mel

    I'm a 35 year old ex smoker of 3 weeks now and it only due to Personal vapours that I finally succeeded in my goal let me tell you a bit about how I got vaping and how & why it is saving my life. It all started back in 2007 I got diagnosed with C.O.P.D & stage 2 emphysema at the grand old age of 30 now I was extremely fit and only left the Parachute regiment 4 years prior to my diagnoses I carried on smoking after being told about my lung disease but then after a routine chest X-ray a shadow was discovered in my left upper lobe so I was then referred to a chest specialist and a battery of test ensued to which after 6 months of poking and prodding & various MDT meeting by the medical staff they decided I had deep set infection & lung bullae I was told to quick smoking or I would be dead in 15 years (that was almost 6 years ago now) so I tried it all will power didn't work, inhalator didn't work , patches didn't work , tabs didn't work, Zyban not only did it not work it almost sent me crazy with the adverse side effects, mouth sprays didn't work you get the picture I tried every NRT treatment known to man on several occasion I now understand why only 7% of NRT users succeed in quitting then by chance I brought one of those disposable E-cigs in a supermarket it wasn't bad so I looked into getting a refillable one I did but they just didn't last long enough I then came across an Ego pass-through kit with a Vision clearomiser tank on it which held 1.8ml of E-juice most of which is extremely safe (if brought from reputable companies such as Hangsen) Once I did that I cut down so much it got to the point where is was smoking one roll-up when I woke up & one before bed then I got some different flavour E-liquid and that was it I haven't smoked since. So to all those putting down Ecigs may I suggest you actually read some facts and Google ECCA UK there is a load of interesting Facts yes Facts & not just hearsay on their site.

    At least I have a sense of humour and I don't go around picking on people for choosing a healthier alternative to something that was guaranteed to kill them ;) I

    stoopid Definition of "capsule" from 'Oxford Dictionaries': noun a small case or container, especially a round or cylindrical one. I repeat: Read what I write. I have not referred to you as 'illegal drug users'. I make no mention of 'neighbourhood smack heads' nor do I compare you to 'drug addicted criminals'. If you are like this with nicotine, I can well believe that without it you're (as in the cartoon graphic on your webposts) like 'the Incredible Hulk with txxs'.

    We dont get nicotine in a capsule, also you keep referring us to illegal drugs addicts. With using an ecig, we have the CHOICE to lower our nicotine intake to allow us to stop using nicotine all together. What part of that can you not understand? Cigs dont offer us that option! And traditional NRT's have a failure rate of something like 95% Where Ecigs have a near 100% success rate. Do you go round badgering people on the patch, the losenge, the inhalers? I doubt that as well. What is WRONG with the CHOICE we make as ADULTS as to how we STOP SMOKING (which is the absolute most important thing) and eventually stop nicotine? I'd also like to note that there has been speculation that part of our addiction to nicotine, is a deficiency in Niacin (Vitamin B3), even though essentially Niacin and Nicotine are two totally different compounds....When nicotine is oxidized, it becomes nicotonic acid, or....NIACIN. Many ecig users who are going from a low dose mg of nicotine report that taking a B Complex or B3 vitamin, helps them transition completely to being totally without nicotine. So yet again, I reiterate what I said at the beginning of this comment, What is WRONG with the CHOICE we make as ADULTS as to how we STOP SMOKING (which is the absolute most important thing) and eventually stop nicotine? I really think you comparing us repeatedly to your neighbourhood smack head is offensive. It is a poor play on your part to liken every day normal law abiding citizens to drug addicted criminals. Kind of is reminiscent of hate propaganda used during wars to instil fear in the weak minded individuals who adhere to flock mentality.

    stooped & bondage Please read what I write and don't assume what I think. Your posts do not offend me. It's the fact that you and fellow (v)apes wax lyrical over getting nicotine in a capsule and kid yourselves that you've found the golden elixir. Big deal - You're still addicts. There are no comments from people singing the praises of tobacco smoking, in the advert and the thread, so I haven't written anything about them.
