Welcome to the BeatNic Blog. Here, you'll find the latest e cigarette news, commentary and maybe even a special or two.
With the re-organization of the E-Cig Express website, we decided to rename our old "E-Cig Express Blog" and move it from the Blogger platform to one right here on our website. Rather than move all of the old articles and comments over to a new platform, we decided to leave them in place. You can view the old blog here.
Please feel free to comment on any post you find here. We want to hear from you!

Society incorrectly assumes that the people who decide [...]
Currently, the state of Minnesota is the only state that has enacted a tax on e-cigarettes. Specifically, it taxes e-cigarettes, cartridges and e-liquid that contain nicotine at a whopping 95% of the wholesale price. According to a USA Today article, "at least 30 [other states] are considering e-cigarette taxes of some kind next year." Now, I'm [...]
Nothing controversial today. Just a quick note to let people know that we have now created a user's guide for the eLeaf Mini iKit. Although the eLeaf Mini iKit comes with a user's manual, unless you are very familiar with e-cigarettes that use tanks, the instruction are quite vague. We've had to coach a lot of [...]

Almost exactly 6 weeks ago, the CASAA issued its first call to action in regards to the FDA's proposed regulations of electronic cigarettes. E-cigarette users were asked to contact the FDA, asking for a 105 day extension to respond to the deeming regulations. The FDA, after all, took more than 3 1/2 years to write the [...]
