Hi I'm Tom Anderson, thanks for visiting...
Electronic Cigarettes - You've heard about them, you've seen them on TV and in the news and now you want one, the only question is should you order one through a U.S. dealer or from a dealer right here in Canada?
Let me set the record straight... Canadian law DOES NOT permit importing nicotine cartridges or nicotine juice into Canada, which is one of the main components in virtually every electronic cigarette in the US market.
So What Does This Mean?... It means that Canadians MUST buy their electronic cigarettes WITHIN Canada from a Canadian distributor, failing to do so will result in your purchase being seized by Canadian Customs and you WILL NOT get your money back... trust me I know because it happened to me, let me explain.....
..... I ordered an electronic cigarette starter kit from one of the largest suppliers in the U.S. (Unfortunately, they will remain anonymous as I don't want any legal hassles from them) anyway, their website clearly indicated that they shipped their products world-wide including Canada, so without much thought I went ahead and ordered a starter kit.
After several weeks went by and I had not received my order I contacted their customer support and had them put a trace on it, two days later a company representative contacted me to tell me that my order had been seized by Canadian customs and that I had no further recourse, I contacted Customs asking for an explanation and was told that my package was seized because the electronic cigarette cartridges contained nicotine which is forbidden to be imported into Canada, they also told me that the company I ordered from was well aware of our import laws.
I understand that "ignorance of the law is no excuse" but it sure would have been nice if this company would have informed me of the risk I was taking, instead, they gave me no indication of the risk and just took my order as if there would be no problem, it ended up costing me $129.99 plus $25.00 S/H and I received Nothing in return... Ouch!
Anyway, I was bound and determined to buy an electronic cigarette so I got on the Internet and began searching for "Electronic Cigarettes in Canada" and much to my dismay the only ones I could find were the type that you have to manually add the nicotine juice (otherwise known as e-juice) yourself.
My problem with those is that it's almost impossible not to get sticky liquid all over your fingers and lips, not to mention the frequent cleaning of the cartridges by boiling in water so as to avoid blockage and corrosion, personally that's just way too much work for me, I just wanted the hassle free technology... you know, the ones you see all the celebrities smoking.... just pull out an ecig from the pack and smoke!
The Good News is... I came across a company by the name of Epuffer
If you are looking for a high quality electronic cigarette in Canada I highly recommend this company, they have the very best electronic cigarettes that I have ever used.
After further research I decided to purchase their signature e-cigarette kit called the "SNAPS - STARTER KIT" and I am so glad I did.
Honestly folks, this has got to be the closest thing you will ever find to a "real cigarette", It's absolutely amazing, it looks, feels and tastes almost identical and at a fraction of the cost of real cigarettes.
All of the electronic cigarettes that I have ever seen are big and heavy feeling but this new "SNAPS e-Cig" is so small and lightweight that it feels like I am actually smoking the real thing... I even find myself trying to flick the ashes off, ha ha ha ...
But seriously, that's how realistic it is, so if you want an e-cigarette that feels like the real thing I highly recommend this amazing little guy, It's so cool!
I bought the "MAGNUM SNAPS E-CIG E-PACK KIT" which included:
- 1 Personal Charging Case ( PCC / E-PACK )
- 1 E55M Battery ASH TIP / RED LED
- 1 E55M Battery ASH TIP / BLUE LED
- 3 Tobacco Sample Cartridges - Delivers Up-to 300 Puffs Each ( ~ 60 cigarettes )
- Universal AC2USB Adapter 110/240V
As a Bonus they take an Extra 10% off (Use coupon code 10PERCENT) which makes this an EXCELLENT deal!
