As January rolls on, the ranks of vapedom are being swelled once again with the latest influx of new vapers using their New Year's resolutions as the perfect opportunity to make the switch. Hello to all of you!
We're a couple of weeks into the New Year already (I know, time flies) and many people are still getting to grips with their New Year's resolution. Among the most popular resolutions is the desire to give up cigarettes, which can be easier said than done. To help, we've come up with 5 tips to help you stick to your resolution going forward.
We don’t like conventional at JAC Vapour; it’s not who we are. We don’t jauntily place Santa hats on our Company Logo to appear festive. We don’t focus our business on an “all or nothing” Christmas Sales strategy. We take our time, build products until we are happy with them and then release them, once we are happy that it’s the best product that we could make.
Tis' the season of office parties, family get-togethers and drinks by the fire. Christmas is almost upon us, so it's a good time to think about vaping etiquette over the festive period. We've put together a handy list of do's and do not's which should help you make it through to the New Year.

Christmas is almost here, and for most of us that means the annual hunt for that perfect gift is back on again. Well worry not, dear reader, for JAC Vapour is coming to rescue this yuletide season.
By the end of the 21st century a billion people are projected to die from smoking-related illnesses. On its own, such a number is impossible to fully understand. It’s the stories behind the number which really help drive home the reality of what the world is facing over the next 80 years.
It's that time of year again folks. November 25th marks the most exciting date on the calendar (well, perhaps second after Christmas Day) - Black Friday! And boy do we have some some amazing deals to share with you!
We've been asked in the past why we don't stock some popular e-liquids which have come out of the market in the USA. While there are some very interesting flavours stateside, a number of issues prevent us from carrying them.
At JAC, we're always working hard to offer the best products around. In a continuation of those efforts, we're pleased to announce that JAC Vapour have secured the exclusive distribution rights to the new Arymi Gille Tank in the UK.
With Christmas fast approaching (and the resolution season not far behind), we thought we’d share our top 5 picks for the vaper in your life – whether they’re an absolute beginner or a bit of a vaping aficionado. We’ve also chosen our best e-liquid picks for the office party and to taste match your Christmas pudding.
Coils and wicks can be confusing for the first time user. First off, they are often referred to in many different ways, such as a coil, wick, atomiser, atty and several other variations. In reality, however, they all mean roughly the same thing.
Stoptober, for those not already in the know, is an annual campaign to encourage smokers to quit tobacco. Running throughout October, it's been a big success as a focal point on the calendar for smoking cessation campaign groups to co-ordinate around.
In the first of our series of JAC Talk interviews, we've caught up with our Customer Service Manager, Jane Allan, to pick her brain a little about the kinds of things which crop up when speaking to new vapers.
Consumers in 2016 are spoiled for choice when it comes to where to spend their hard-earned cash, which is why customer loyalty programmes have become so important. We decided to take a look at some of the most successful programmes around and why our own JAC Pack is designed to suit you.
You may have noticed we've talked a lot about the TPD recently. It came in to law in May 2016 and as a responsible company, we are required by law to ensure that we're compliant. We’d like to make sure that our customers understand what's going on and how the new laws might affect the products you currently buy.
As part of our membership of the IBVTA, we've been working with the MHRA to seek clarification on certain aspects of the TPD implementation, as well as trying to appeal against certain restrictions.
In an industry as diverse and fast-paced as ours, customers are faced with a huge choice of companies with whom to spend their hard-earned cash. We know this, and recognise it for what is: an opportunity to show what makes us stand out from the crowd.
This year, our industry has undergone some of the most radical changes in its history, with the implementation of the EU-wide Tobacco Products Directive. But what do these changes mean for you?
You may have noticed that things here at JAC towers have changed a bit recently. We've been making some changes to the site to help improve your shopping experience, and as part of this you'll have no doubt spotted that the way we reward our customers has also changed.
In May this year, the UK government implemented its version of the Tobacco Products Directive. These new laws, The Tobacco and Related Products Regulations 2016, have resulted in many changes to our industry, particularly for retailers.
If you're heading off on your holidays this summer, travel insurance, packing and getting your currency may be the first things you consider. But here's why you should be thinking about your e-cigarette too.
If the call of the wild is louder than the call of the beach, you might be heading off on a camping adventure this summer. If a night under the stars sounds like your favourite way to relax and unwind, you'll love our top 5 e-liquids for around the campfire.

To help, we've put together a list of our top 5 e-liquids for the beach.
With the recent Leave vote in the EU referendum, you may be left wondering how this will affect the new TPD rules which came into force in May. Our Regulatory and Compliance Manager, Bryn Rees, has the answers.
For the jetsetting vaper in 2016, there is (literally) a world of choice available to you when planning your next holiday. We've decided to try to make things simple, with our list of the Top 5 Vape Destinations.
Arriving just in time for Summer, we're very pleased to unveil two limited edition guest flavour concentrates, for use with our picNIC range of easy-mix DIY e-liquids.
We know what it's like when packing for a festival in the UK - do you take wellies or flip-flops? Thermals or shorts? Sadly we can't help you with the weather, but we can advise what vaping supplies you'll need to see you through.
The sun is (currently) shining, the skies are blue and festival season is at hand. Over the next few months, the UK will play host to a huge range of music festivals - large and small. If you're going to be throwing shapes in a field this summer, our guide to vaping at festivals is a must-read.
Due to a lack of media coverage, you'd be forgiven for not being aware that the House of Lords has been considering a fatal Prayer Motion recently which, if passed, would have stopped the implementation of the Tobacco Products Directive in its tracks.
If you, or someone you know, is considering switching to vaping, it can often be difficult to work out whether it's going to be for you. What are the benefits of e-cigs over tobacco, for instance? To help, we've put together our top 9 reasons for making the switch. Continue reading →
It seems that the good news train just keeps on rolling. Hot on the tail of the Royal College of Physicians' backing of e-cigs, the BBC has aired a new documentary looking at e-cigarettes, their effectiveness as a tool for those seeking to quit tobacco, and their effect on vapers' health.
Following on from last summer's report by Public Health England, the Royal College of Physicians has today released its own report, in which they recommend promoting e-cigarettes as a substitute for smoking.
What makes a successful company? Is it selling the most on-trend products? Is it style over everything else? Or is it something a little deeper? At JAC Vapour, we've built our company on three pillars which have helped us to grow and develop over the past six years. Continue reading →
In an industry as dependent on battery technology as ours, we’re always pushing to develop new and exciting products to help improve your battery life. So we’re pleased to announce the latest innovation from JAC Vapour: coming in 2016, our Real Move™ technology will revolutionise battery charging forever.
March 9th is No Smoking Day, so there's no better time to make the switch to vaping than right now.
Recently, we launched our brand new range of picNIC DIY e-liquids. The easy-mix range includes 29 flavour concentrates as well as 4 base liquid blends available in a selection of starter kits and bundles.
picNIC has been met with a very positive response since its debut. We've already heard from customers who have created some weird and wonderful e-liquid flavour combinations.
For new vapers, finding the right e-liquid is often the trickiest part of making the switch to vaping. There are hundreds of options available, and for new users who are used to smoking just one type of tobacco, the choice can be a little overwhelming.
That's where our retail shops can help. In each of our high street shops we offer a vape bar, allowing customer to try as many of our e-liquid flavours as they like.
As seems to be the case periodically, at the moment we're seeing a glut of articles in the press regarding batteries venting or exploding, causing damage to bags, clothing and even harm to the user in a few unfortunate instances.
What the media seems much less keen to pick up on is that, in most cases, this kind of incident could have been easily avoided had the user followed some basic battery safety steps.
One of the best things about vaping? The huge variety of flavours to try.
No longer are you restricted to just tobacco or menthol flavours, but a whole range of new flavour profiles too.
We're very pleased to unveil our brand new range of easy DIY e-liquids - picNIC.
Our customers wanted more flavours, more choices of nicotine bases – basically, more options to customise their vaping habit to best suit their needs. And we listened.
2016 will see the implementation of Tobacco Products Directive throughout Europe, and specifically in the UK. Once transposed into UK law, these new rules will affect the sale and use of tobacco and tobacco-related products, including e-cigarettes across the UK. In the second of our series of TPD related articles we look at what the Tobacco Products Directive will mean for UK e-cigarette companies.
2015 was another great year for us here at JAC Vapour, and if there was one product which summed up those 12 months for us, it was the SERIES-E. First launched in Nov 2014, it was a runaway success throughout last year, quickly becoming our best-selling device. Now, in 2016, we're updating the range, offering a refreshed design, more options and new accessories.
This year sees the introduction of the Tobacco Products Directive throughout Europe. This new set of rules will affect the sale and use of tobacco and tobacco-related products, including e-cigarettes, in all member states. In the first of our series of TPD related articles we look at what the TPD means for vapers.
