What To Watch Out For When Reading E Cig Reviews
Many smokers are today looking at alternatives to their regular cigarettes. One of the main alternatives on today’s market are electronic cigarettes, also known as “vaping.” But if you’re new to E-cigs it may be daunting trying to decide which brand and make you want to go with.
Thankfully, the explosion in popularity of electronic cigarettes has led to many people trying them out and reviewing them on the internet. Reading reviews is always a great way to get a feel of a new product unknown to you, but there are some things to know and consider before taking any review as gospel. This is especially true for electronic cigarettes. There is a lot of misinformation out there and it’s important to keep in mind that this is your health being dealt with.
The first thing to consider about an E-cig review is the source. Is it reliable? Is it someone you trust? If it’s someone you trust to be a reliable and honest person, then their advice might work for you. You should also be wary of any reviewers working for a website that may receive monetary or other compensation for giving a good review to a certain company.
Next, does the review go into specifics, or is it very generic? Things to watch for are general, sweeping statements that could apply to any E-cig, like “good vaping,” or “nice flavors” without being specific about which flavors and how they exactly taste. A good review will go into details, assuming the product was actually tested by the reviewer.
Lastly, you want to check how old the review is. Older reviews tend to be out of date and may not apply to any E-cigs currently on the market. Older ones may have also come out before any health issues related to vaping were known, and therefore be woefully inaccurate in those areas.
Choosing to make the switch from real cigarettes to E-cigs is a great stop on the road to quitting smoking or just to make a minor lifestyle change. However, it’s important to consider the pros and cons of the reviews you are reading while you research which brand is right for you. By being vigilant about the authenticity and the authority of the review you are essentially taking better care of your health and yourself. Good luck on your search.
