Other basic information to consider when choosing the strength:
Your current smoking style will help determine which electronic cigarette is right for you. Take into consideration the type of smoker you are. Typically, most smokers fit into one of the following categories:
- Occasional/Social Smokers - Less than one pack per week
- Light Smokers - Between 5 and 20 cigarettes per day
- Heavy Smokers - Between one and two packs per day
- Very Heavy Smokers - Two and a half packs per day or more
The ideal strength, or amount of nicotine in an electronic cigarette cartridge, should match how frequently you smoke. For people who generally smoke a pack per day, the middle of the strength spectrum is a good place to start. This is considered Full Strength and provides 2.4% NBV (Nicotine By Volume).
If you are new to White Cloud products, you might find that a trial run with a disposable electronic cigarette is the best introduction. The soft-tipped, full-flavored Fling provides you with all of the satisfaction of our Cirrus electronic cigarette but doesn't require charging. It provides about the same amount of nicotine vapor as 40 regular cigarettes. This gives you the chance to discover which flavor and strength combination best suits you.
We generally state that each SmoothDraw E-Cig cartridge or Fling is equivalent to about 2 packs of cigarettes or 400 puffs*. Please bear in mind that this estimate is relative to one's usage of the cartridges and not the individual smoker or their nicotine craving. If you find yourself exhausting cartridges more frequently than the comparable number of cigarettes, you may need to choose a higher strength cartridge.
* A puff is measured at 2.8 seconds of constant use.
