wait, the commercial says its nicotine free. Isn't that the point of smoking? Won't a day or so on these cause the user to go into withdrawal?
If i owned a restaurant in an anti-smoking town I'd still kick people out of my restaurant if they were using these. It still gives the illusion of smoking. If an inspector walked in i'd get sited for letting someone smoke.
They usually have nicotine cartridges, too. They don't make all of the puffy smoke that the commercial shows.
The "smoke inside" angle is dumb, but maybe they wanted to avoid making health-related claims. Going outside to smoke is nice. I don't like smelling smoke in a restaurant.
Anyway, these are sort of like putting your mouth around the business end of a humidifier. Some people like it for what it is but they're not like cigarettes at all.
...and there are flavored e-cigarettes though they might be banned in some places (flavored smokes are attractive to kids)
I know someone who has one.
1.) Doesn't last as long as cigarettes because addicts hit it non-stop like a crackpipe of holding until it runs out (whole pack equivalent gone in hours), then back to cigarettes.
2.) Does have an odor, sort of an artificial fruit smell combined with burning plastic, which is actually pretty nasty. You wouldn't want to eat around one and they do make more smoke than you expect one would.
3.) Watching someone pretend to smoke LED crack nonstop is the upside, if you find that funny.
Better e-cigs dispense with the silly LED.
They're never 100% like cigarettes. Some e-liquids are very close.
There are fairly small models with 650mAh batteries and 2.5 mL cartridge volume, which will last about 6+ hours of fairly non-stop vaping.
memedumpster's friend doesn't know how to clean the atomizer. Once polyfill goes dry and burns on it, it will taste like plastic. But this is easily avoided (don't let the cartridge polyfill go completely dry) and rectified (there are numerous methods of atomizer maintenance).
@freedom - Fuck yeah that's the point of smoking! I'd freebase that shit if only they would make it illegal!!!
@paster - I smoke outside cause the smell is awful. Although I'd argue that there's something about the yellow haze wafting inside a diner that just makes the greasy piles of shit taste better.
@Mickerus - I cure my oral fixation with a toothpick or a pen to chew on. You hit it on the head by claiming that only a douche would purchase a smoke-emitting flashlight.

These probably don't give you crazy patch dreams, for me that'd be a downside but for the boring-looking folks in this commercial it might be a plus.

I have some e-cigarettes. They work, are a lot more convenient and potentially less expensive than cancer sticks, you can choose your nic level, throat hit and flavor. I'd never, ever buy one of these or the shitty models sold by smokingeverywhere, when you can get a 510 kit for 35 or an eGo for 60.
Hit up the forums at http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/forum/
if you want tips on good models/e-liquids. A lot of people have successfully quit conventional cigarettes with them, but I think that snus is a better nic source overall.

I would just like to take this opportunity to remind all you guys who use something like this that DemoniusX does too.

0:10: I wasn't aware Cal Ripken smoked.

I got one of these and hollowed it out so I can pop real cigarettes into it and smoke in restaurants

I looked into the possibility of reloading this thing with marijuana back when it first came out, but it didn't seem feasible. I wonder if hash oil would work.

Five stars for how douchey these guys are.
I've got some of these, not this brand, but I like them pretty well. I had half a pack of analog cigarettes left when I got them, and I finished them off and I haven't even felt like I needed any more regular ones at all. They really don't last as long as they claim to though, that is the only thing I am disappointed with.

I like the black one with the blue LED on the end that DemoniusX uses. It's like a cigarette a robot would smoke in the future.

I use something similar to this, but I got it on-line much cheaper and with nicotine. I haven't smoked a real cigarette in two months. I rock it DemoniusX-style with a blue or purple LED. I wish it made Flash Gordon noises... :(
