FAQ - General
Who should use e-cigs?
E-Cigs are designed to be an effective replacement for cigarettes. They were specifically invented for smokers who want to get an equivalent experience and nicotine intake to smoking without the thousands of harmful chemicals that are released by burning tobacco.
The sale of electronic cigarettes to persons under 18 years of age is illegal.
If you’ve never smoked we do not recommend using an E-Cig.
We also recommend anyone with pre-existing heart conditions, anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding and those unsure if e-cigs would be right for them to contact their doctor.
Some brands and flavours of e-liquid contain nut elements and traces. Always be sure to read the label and consult your doctor if you are unsure.
Are TABlites Electronic Cigarettes for quitting smoking?
No. Electronic cigarettes are not smoking-cessation devices. TABlites makes no claim that electronic cigarettes will help people to quit smoking, and are sold as an alternative to smoking tobacco that deliver nicotine and the sensation of smoking, while also keeping the ‘hand-to-mouth action’ that is part of the habit of smoking.
Are TABlites Regulated?
There are regulations on electronic cigarettes due to come into effect in May 2016 as part of the European Commissions Revised Tobacco Products Directive. Prior to this electronic cigarettes were covered under general consumer protection laws and several UK and European electronic product laws and regulations including displaying of ‘CE’ mark and WEEE.
All our products are stringently quality tested to ensure the purity and quality of our E-Liquids and devices.
TABlites Electronic Cigarettes are not regulated as a medical product as they are not a pharmaceutical product and as such can’t be regulated by the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency). There is at least one (at the time of writing) ‘electronic cigarette’ registered and licensed as a medical product, but it is so different from other e-cigs that are on the market as to be a whole new class of product.
What are the ingredients of E-Liquid?
All TABlites ingredients are either pharmaceutical- or food-grade.
E-Liquid is made up of a base liquid made from propylene glycol and vegetable glycerine (PG and VG), added to this is nicotine in various concentrations, flavourings and sometimes de-ionized water.
PG and VG are both products that have been used in the food and medical industries for many years, most commonly in inhalers and nebulisers.
The flavourings used are always the highest quality food-grade products and the nicotine used is pharmaceutical grade.
Some brands and flavours of E-Liquid contain nut traces. Please consult your doctor if you have medical questions or are unsure about allergens.
Is nicotine harmful?
“Nicotine itself is not a particularly hazardous drug, it’s something on a par with the effects you get from caffeine… if all the smokers in Britain stopped smoking cigarettes and started smoking e-cigarettes we would save five million deaths in people who are alive today. It’s a massive potential public health prize.”
- Professor John Britton, Tobacco Advisory Group for the Royal College of Physicians.
Can I use TABlites products if I am on medication?
At TABlites we are not qualified to give medical advice. Please consult with your doctor if you have any medical questions.
Are Electronic Cigarettes a medical product?
On the 8th of October 2013 a vote in the European Parliament decided that electronic cigarettes should not be classified as a medicine. As such TABlites products are not medicinal in nature.
