1. What exactly is the HDSmoke Electronic Cigarette?
The HDSmoke Electronic Cigarette is a revolutionary new battery-powered alternative to traditional tobacco smoking. Our simple 2-piece design is easy to use and replicates an authentic smoking experience without all the negative implications associated with traditional tobacco products. HDSmoke is the smart alternative to smoked tobacco products, such as cigarettes, cigars, and pipes. The vapor or mist it produces provides a flavor and physical sensation similar to that of inhaled tobacco smoke, while no tobacco, smoke, or combustion is actually involved in its use.

2. Can I use the HDSmoke Electronic Cigarette anywhere?
The short answer is "Yes". The vapor produced by the HDSmoke consists of propylene glycol (dry ice). This vapor dissipates almost immediately and does not smell. There is no passive smoking issue for non-smokers and the vapor does not linger on clothing, hair, or fixtures and fittings which is why the HDSmoke has been accepted in bars, restaurants, workplaces and even onboard airplanes.

3. Why should I switch to an Electronic Cigarette?
Many people are using the device wherever cigarettes is banned, while others are cutting down or using the HDSmoke as a smarter alternative. Being able to smoke indoors in the bitterly cold weather is a massive advantage and negates the need for the quick rushed cigarette smoked, but not really enjoyed, outside. In the next couple of years, this invention will become much more prevalent and recognizable and those that embrace the invention as a good thing will surely benefit. The real winner, of course, is the smoker. The electronic cigarette is a much smarter, cheaper option than traditional smoking and finally gives the smoker a viable alternative to the real thing.

4. Are HDSmoke Electronic Cigarettes approved by the FDA?
HDSmoke Electronic Cigarettes do not fall under the jurisdiction of the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) nor the TTB (The Alcohol and Tobacco Trade Bureau) as they do not contain tobacco.

5. Can the HDSmoke Electronic Cigarette really replace my cigarette in terms of taste and smell?
The HDSmoke Electronic Cigarette is available in several cartridge flavors. Our Regular, Robust and Menthol flavors are very popular with smokers. Also, with the HDSmoke Electronic Cigarette, you may smoke indoors or in the presence of others since there is no offensive odor. You may even use it on an Airplane. With traditional smoking being socially unacceptable these days, you'll still want to show consideration when using your electronic cigarette.

6. Can I save money by switching to electronic "smoking"?
Absolutely. You can eliminate the weekly expense of purchasing cigarettes. HDSmoke Electronic Cigarette cartridges and cartomizers cost about half of what regular cigarettes cost.

7. How long will a cartridge or cartomizer last?
That depends solely on your usage patterns. Some users will go through 1 cartridge or less a day, while others will go through 2 or even 3 a day. One cartridge is roughly equivalent to a half pack of traditional tobacco cigarettes. One cartomizer is roughly equivalent to one and a half packs of cigarettes (30 cigarettes).

8. When do I replace my e-cigarette cartridge?
When you begin to notice less amounts of vapor when you "puff" your e-cigarette, this is a good indication the cartridge or cartomizer is running low and will need to be replaced.

9. What is a Cartomizer?
A new electronic cigarette technology has come into play that is making our HDSmoke Electronic Cigarette stand out from other brands. We are now offering cartridges that have the atomizer built in. They are called "cartomizers". This means you don't have to continuously keep replacing the atomizer after it wears out over time. (This is known to happen!) So with every new cartomizer you have a brand new atomizer! This means you will be getting the highest vapor concentration of any electronic cigarette on the market and you will be protecting yourself from having to spend more money on replacing atomizers. More smoke and a better throat hit. This is the newest technology to hit the electronic cigarette market and we are proud to offer it.

10. How often do I need to recharge the battery, and how long does it take to do?
HDSmoke manufacturers use only high quality, high-tech lithium-ion rechargeable batteries. These batteries typically last approximately 200-300 puffs with normal use before they need to be re-charged. The frequency of charging your battery will depend on how often you inhale. Typically it takes about 3 to 4 hours to fully charge the HDSmoke battery.

11. What is propylene glycol and is it safe?
Propylene glycol is an organic compound which is colorless, nearly odorless, clear, viscous liquid with a faintly sweet taste. It is absorbed and metabolized by your body therefore, does not stick to your lungs like tar. Propylene Glycol has been rated as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the FDA for use as a solvent in pharmaceuticals, in food as an additive, and as a moisturizer in cosmetics and medicines. For most of us it is commonly seen with the use of smoke machines at clubs and in theatrical productions to produce artificial smoke.

12. Will my breath smell the same as when I use cigarettes?
One of the beauties of HDSmoke electronic cigarettes is that your breath will not smell of tobacco. Your hands, clothing, car, home will not have that foul odor that is typically associated with tobacco products.

13. How do the ingredients in an HDSmoke Electronic Cigarette compare to a traditional tobacco cigarette?
The Electronic Cigarette contains: water, propylene glycol, a scent to emulate flavor and a membrane to contain all the ingredients. Nicotine is an option where legally available. The complete list of chemicals added to your traditional cigarettes is too long to list here. To name a few: Ammonia, Arsenic, Benzene, Butane, Carbon monoxide, Cadmium, Cyanide DDT, Lead, Formaldehydethe list goes on! Further, there are more than 4,000 chemicals generally found in tobacco smoke. Many of these are known to cause cancer.

14. Do I need to turn my HDSmoke Electronic Cigarette off when not in use?
No, the HDSmoke is automatic and the battery is used ONLY when you inhale.

15. Is it legal to smoke anywhere I want?
Yes. Because the HDSmoke Electronic Cigarette does not generate any smoke whatsoever, no flame, and it is safe and legal to use everywhere. It is not subject to fire codes, smoking by-laws or smoking prohibitions of any kind. You can even smoke this amazing device on an airplane if you choose. Please be considerate of those around you!

16. Is the HDSmoke Electronic Cigarette guaranteed?
Yes. HDSmoke offers its customers a Lifetime Warranty against manufacturer's defects. We stand behind our product. Shop with confidence!

17. Are the HDSmoke electronic cigarettes designed to help me quit smoking?
Our e-cigarettes are simply a smarter alternative to smoking cigarettes. They have not been tested as a smoking cessation device and should only be viewed as simply an alternative to smoking tobacco. They should not be used by non-smokers.

18. How do you use HDSmoke?
HDSmoke products are very simple to use and convenient. Our patented 2-piece electronic cigarette design is rigid so it will not easily crush in your purse, pocket, drawer and any other location like conventional cigarettes. Carefully screw the cartomizer onto the battery and you are ready to start enjoying your HDSmoke Electronic Cigarette. The battery is automatic! It is activated simply by inhaling, and it is off when not in use. There is no need to turn your HDSmoke Electronic Cigarette on or off. There is no need to worry about starting a fire in the
trash bin, on clothes, bedding or elsewhere. When smoke or vapor is no longer being produced, it is time to change the cartomizer. Simply unscrew it and dispose of it. Screw on a new cartomizer.
