Fast Times and Fast Evolution in the E-Cigarette Market

Modern VapingThe electronic cigarette industry has been around for just over a decade, internationally. The technology is ever-changing and the products as a whole have undergone various evolutions in such a short time. They are indicative of the era we now live in where technology is always progressing and constantly improving. Here’s a look at how a simple technological concept has challenged the tobacco industry like nothing before in just a few short years.

Before electronic cigarettes emerged and became a global phenomenon, nothing truly was able to compete with traditional cigarettes. Smokers who wanted an alternative had the option of nicotine gum, nicotine patches, and prescription drugs that came with their own possible side effects. The options were slim and not with a great success rate, often leaving smokers to their own devices, either going cold turkey or finding some other distraction in order to leave the smoke behind.

When e-cigarettes hit the market in China in 2003, they took off immediately. They were the first product of their kind to give smokers exactly what they wanted without the negatives. It was not long before the products started expanding overseas, throughout Asia and eventually into Europe and then the United States.

Since around 2009, e-cigarettes have been a commonplace item in the American market. Many brands have come and gone and those that have remained have been able to harness the technology to develop and craft products that resonate with users. In such a competitive market, offering quality and innovation goes very far.

This type of groundbreaking success is indicative of the magnitude of e-cigarettes. While in the beginning people might’ve assumed they were just a trend, time has shown that they are anything but. Because e-cigarettes are able to be marketed under strict terminology, they’re used by smokers effectively as an alternative, and give the absolute for users to have the type of experience they want, plus added benefits like freedom, cost savings, and versatility. This makes them the ultimate modern way to smoke.

International Vapor Group has been a part of this industry since the beginning, and our products are examples of how innovation and high-quality have gone a really long way in this market. All of our brands surpass user expectations, while maintaining a strict devotion to innovation.

How and Why E-Cigarettes Work

south_beach_smoke_batteriesElectronic cigarettes are considered a very modern option for smokers who want alternatives to the tradition version of smoking. So how and why are they replacing the conventional method? Here’s a look at how they work, and why they’re working so well traditional tobacco is getting overlooked in favor of vapor.

E-cigarettes are electronic devices. Powered by batteries, and rather simple in construction. Batteries come in a wide range of styles, sizes, and power levels, but one way or another, vaping cannot be done without a battery for power. They also contain an atomizer, which is the component responsible for heating up the liquid that holds the nicotine, and vaporizing it into the hit the user takes by puffing on the device. So, there is the device, a component that holds liquid (either a disposable cartridge that comes pre-filled, or a tank that the user fills), an atomizer, and a battery. That’s it, and all it takes for a traditional cigarette to be totally, utterly, replaced by technology without tobacco.

Why they work is simple; the design of this amazingly innovative technology has been perfected over time. Now, having been on the international market for over 10 years, e-cigarettes have seen many incarnations. So many styles and types exist, yet they all basically reel in the same result: nicotine-happy, satisfied vape-smokers.

E-cigarettes recreate the experience of smoking in every way. They satisfy the feeling of heavy smoke in the mouth. The repetitive motion of inhaling, exhaling, and having the hand-to-mouth desire satiated. There is flavor (and lots of it!), and the ability to have the habit in moments of boredom. Vaping is, simply, smoking redefined, reinvented, and revised for the modern smoker.

And with so many different smokers out there, there are now endless varieties to please nearly everyone. As makers of a variety of top brands in the market, we know firsthand. For a look at all of our different brands, check out our e-cigarette brand lineup here!

A Look at E-Cig Innovations

VaporFi Vox One of the most interesting aspects of the electronic cigarette is how many variations exist. For connoisseurs, it’s easy to get heavily involved in devices because they really are just that intriguing. Here is a look at the most common varieties, and how things have changed since the early days of electronic cigarettes when it was all about mimicking traditional cigarettes.

Basic E-Cigs: They are cornerstone of brands such as South Beach Smoke and EverSmoke. These devices still are a common point of entry into vaping for beginners. They were made to resemble every nuance of a traditional cigarette, and basically recreate the concept of smoking for tobacco smokers who wanted an alternative.

Basic Vaporizers: Because serious vapers were getting more and more into vaping as an art and hobby, the need for evolving products was growing. Basic vaporizers enabled users to have larger batteries, more power, more choices, and allowed users to use and fill their own e-liquids.

Hi-Tech: More innovation lead to even more advanced personal vaporizers. These began to include variable voltage, more control options, customizable options for very personal use, and batteries that could withstand immense usage. VaporFi is loaded with great vaporizer options for every level of vaper.

Rebuildable & Mods: With the vaping population getting further involved in their devices, and knowing every aspect and ability of each spec, users began to build their own devices based on the availability of technology. This lead to solidified vape geeks needing greater technology to match their increasing drive for more powerful, advanced devices. Now, if your concept of vaping includes only e-cigs that simulate traditional cigarettes by looking and feeling the same, these RBA’s and mods will blow your mind! Again, VaporFi is leading the industry in this category, offering streamlined advanced devices, executed with the most up to the minute technology.

As the population has evolved, so have the devices. Being a tech-based industry, the growth has been immense and extremely fast, and we could not be more intrigued with the way things continue to progress forward. Where will the industry be in a year? We don’t know yet, but can’t wait to see!

What Lies Ahead in the Future Market

Vaping in the FutureThe e-cigarette industry is one based on technology. In fact, many people believe that these products should be viewed less as “smoking” items and more in line with tech items as they fit the description of technology more than smoking. Considering this industry has evolved several times over in just the past decade, and seemingly every year new products take precedence, it shows that this is a market ready for the current age of technology. Vapers as a whole are always looking to experiment with the latest innovations, and as new products emerge, users are consistently at the forefront to try them.

So what will we be seeing in the coming years? Here is a look.

Pay As You Go Devices

Using apps, vapers will be able to track their nicotine, ‘pay as they go’ for doses with an app, and have their e-cig know when to shut off due to settings they create for further control. Whether intended for regulating the amount of nicotine used, or to control the amount of puffs taken, control settings are the next generation of electronic cigarette devices.

Vape Supplementing

Another territory that will be explored further is that of vaping products that delve into the nutrition sector, by offering vaporized supplements and caffeine. With the concept of dry herb vaping having taken off tremendously, many experts see this expanding further into products that enable you to vape different supplements such as valerian, vitamins, and even THC. As the general public becomes more aware of the many benefits of using herbal supplements, IVG will be ahead of the game when offering a convenient way to reap their benefits.

At International Vapor Group, we have always been at the cutting edge of this industry. Innovation is the very core of our business, and you bet, as the times change, we will be evolving with them. It is a very exciting time to be involved in this industry, and all of our brands are committed to bringing you the latest technology out there. While the future remains to be seen, for the best in current e-cigarette technology, look no further.

The Latest Generation of E-Liquids

Vapor-Zone-e-liquid-packagingIn the past few years, with the accelerated growth of the e-cigarette industry, the level of advancements and innovations that have occurred has been tremendous. It seems, as soon as one new development emerges, a slew of others are in the works and will be hitting the market in no time, rendering last week’s hot new product a thing of the past.

Like all technology niches, e-cigarettes appeal to this current generation of tech-savvy individuals who want bigger, better, more convenient, higher performing, cleaner, sleeker, more versatile devices. So, it’s pretty obvious why e-cigs are a perfect fit for those looking for nicotine without the mess and inconveniences of smoke.

One area that has seriously blossomed in the industry over the last few years (along with the products themselves) has been e-liquids.

In the past, liquids were considered troublesome, inconvenient, difficult to handle, hard to find in good quality, and even somewhat intimidating. Yet, with proper usage, most users have realized the world of possibilities that lie ahead with them.

VaporFi, for example, has become an industry leader in the area of top quality e-liquids. With every effort in place to provide exceptional quality at a very desirable price. Customers are able to rest assured, that when they use VaporFi liquids, they are getting the highest grade, (diacetyl-free, Kosher-Grade, inhalation-grade, Malaysian-Palm derived glycerin) ingredients, made exclusively in the USA for safety, security, standards, and peace of mind.

And to boost the quality factor, VaporFi offers the benefit of custom blending, which enables consumers to have 30,000 different flavor choices. They can choose from vaper-tested  “Top Blends” or they can dream up their own preferred varieties. It takes personalized flavor enjoyment to new levels, and backed with the high performing, top of the line e-liquid base behind them, it’s a no-fail recipe for vaping perfection. Resulting in very satisfied customers.

Not all e-liquids are developed with the same standards, therefore the market holds a tremendous disparity. It’s all part of the IVG difference; we don’t play around!

Puff Counters: Why Users Love Them and Why They’re a Necessity

The VaporFi Pulse Digital Screen w/ Puff Counter 

One of the most popular features on advanced vaporizers are “puff counters.” And while such a thing may seem to be an unnecessary luxury, in actuality they are not. Many users are actively seeking them out when choosing a device, and here is a look at why.

South Beach Smoke and VaporFi make an extensive variety of different digital vaporizers, and many of them include the “puff count” feature. What this does, basically, is count the puffs the user takes. It can be used in different ways, depending on how the user chooses to, and it can be very useful for those interested in tracking their e-cigarette usage.

How it works:

Most advanced personal vaporizers have a certain limit the puffs cannot exceed, typically 999, and after that it will automatically reset to 0. Continuously pressing the power button will allow you to reset the counter, so this can be done as often as the user wants for the desired level of control.

Why users love it:

Why do you really need to count your puffs? Well, different users have different reasons, and some of them really appreciate the benefits of having the option. Some want to count puffs because they want to control the amount they vape because when an activity is that enjoyable, they can be prone to excessiveness. It gives a certain number to hold a standard to; for instance, 5 puffs may be the limit per vaping session, and being able to see that number allows them to stop while they’re ahead. Others want a puff counter because it allows them to save money by limiting their puffing. Like those who want to control how much they’re vaping out of pleasure, being able to keep track of your puffing from a financial standpoint gives users the ability to track exactly how much they vape, and how much liquid they use, making their cost very evident.

It’s the little details that amount to successful products, and IVG brands are chock full of them. One of the ways we ensure our customers’ satisfaction is through this commitment to creating products that fulfill and make vaping more beneficial. Innovative thinking amounts to more innovative vaping; the premise behind IVG!

History of the E-Cigarette

Letter LandscapeIt’s interesting that the e-cigarette is constantly being reinvented, and while it is a very innovative product, it still has a history that can be traced. To learn about the origins of the e-cig, and how we got to the point we are at today keep reading!

The first incarnation of the electronic cigarette was developed in 1963. Herbert A. Gilbert developed the prototype and even had a patent for this product. Understanding the many hazards of tobacco smoking and understanding that with the millions of people who were smokers, it was only a matter of time before all of the health implications became a major, widespread problem. However, at the time, smoking was so en vogue and the harmful effects of cigarettes were not yet widely known, the market was not yet ready for the electronic cigarette. So the concept was filed away, only to be reintroduced some forty years later by a Chinese pharmacist whose father died of lung cancer due to smoking tobacco cigarettes. Han Lik is considered the modern-day inventor of the electronic cigarette.

Seeing a way to bring a positive outcome from these unfortunate circumstances, Han Lik developed a method in which smokers were able to have the same experience as using a traditional cigarette, including holding a similar device, puffing on it, inhaling, exhaling, and essentially receiving nicotine from it, only without the thousands of chemicals and negatives of tobacco.

Han Lik received complete support from the company he was employed with, and with their funding, his vision and design became a reality. It was only a matter of time before the products hit the Chinese market. Once they did, it became immediately clear what a success vapor cigarettes would soon become all over the world. The products’ popularity spread quickly, and before long, people all over Europe were smoking with e-cigarettes, which was a very groundbreaking occurrence as Europeans are quite famous for enjoying the habit of smoking.

By 2007, electronic cigarettes hit the American market, and were met with instant success as well. Now, more than 7 years into their tenure in the US, they are more popular than ever, and so many different varieties have been developed to please smokers of all sorts. To the extent that e-cigarettes have completely offset the tobacco market, and more and more smokers switch to alternative cigarettes all the time. From their past, to the present, this ingenious invention continues to benefit the lives of nicotine connoisseurs everywhere.

Current Happenings in the E-Cig Industry

10007049_484425054992913_5558258852458275861_nRight now, the e-cigarette industry is in a state of evolution. More and more smokers are switching to these products, and the technology is in constant progression; change is happening at a rapid rate. Here is a look at where things stand, and what is currently making this industry so very exciting.

It’s All About Vaporizers

People are really into vaporizers right now, and it’s because they offer a truly supreme experience. These advanced products are amazing, and as users become more interested in technologically dynamic devices, the technology advances as a result. The more versatile and customizable the products, the better. Like any other digital devices, users are thrilled with the ability to modify and fine-tune APV’s to their personal tastes and individual liking.

Technology

Technology is a beautiful thing, and it is always being improved upon. E-cigarette users love technology. We live in an era where things are being created constantly, and this has a direct effect on the e-cigarette industry. International Vapor Group has always been about constantly innovating and improving upon our existing technology, and that has allowed us to get ahead in this market.

Versatile Products

We are seeing more and more types of versatile e-cigarette products, and users cannot get enough of them. Simple and basic are mainstays, however most people want their products to be able to satisfy various needs. We understand that every product should satisfy a variety of different people, and therefore be able to be used in a variety of ways.

FDA regulations

There was talk about regulations for years, and the FDA has finally addressed this. They recently began discussion of plans to implement age restrictions towards e-cigarette sales, along the same lines as traditional cigarettes. However, currently they have no plans of restricting online sales, marketing, or banning any flavors.

The electronic cigarette industry may be relatively new, however it remains exciting because it is continuously changing and growing. As more and more users switch to these products, and the demand continues to grow, it drives the need, further propelling the technology and advancing of the products. Currently, the present time is a fantastic time for this market.

Why Technology Counts

urlOne of our main points of focus is on technology. In this industry, it’s part of the foundation of the products, and as technology is always improving and advancing, in order to stay on top of things, it is absolutely essential to be ever-innovating.

All International Vapor Group brands have been developed on state of the art technology. Whether it’s on our more basic e-cigarette models, or on our highly advanced different vaporizer models, we aim to surpass all others in the market when it comes to our options and offerings.

South Beach Smoke was our first foray into the world of electronic cigarettes, in the earliest days of the industry. We focused our efforts into perfecting the 2-piece e-cigarette design, producing excellent vapor that smokers could relate to, and creating flavors that pleased overwhelmingly. We knew the importance then, that having products made with high quality, high technology, and were able to please a broad range of customers would lead to lasting results. And due to that philosophy, the brand was able to expand and grow exponentially very quickly. In no time at all, South Beach Smoke became one of the most recognized and sought-after brands in the market.

EverSmoke was our next brand, and we started with the same technology as South Beach Smoke, and expanded the available options to branch out to additional customers. Having implemented already successful technology allowed this brand to grow in new directions for us, reaching customers who were looking for something other than what we offered with South Beach Smoke.

VaporZone heralded in a new age of technology for us, as we wanted to keep in line with the changing tides of the market. VaporZone is a brand heavy on technology, and in it’s design, we set forth to create products that surpass others that are commercially available. As is often the case when new products emerge, the concept is there but not the quality. Knowing the market for advanced vaporizers was expanding, even with a lack of consistent quality, VaporZone was created to target the needs of users who wanted better products with the highest level of technology; and that is exactly what the end result has been.

We take technology very seriously, and we understand how important it is to the e-cigarette industry. Our brands have been founded on it, and it is a testament to where we are headed in the future!
