How safe are electronic cigarettes?
Electronic cigarettes are less harmful than conventional cigarettes. They are legally sold in the USA, UK, and many other EU countries. They are less harmful than conventional cigarettes as there is no burning involved and therefore no smoke. The vapour that is produced is mainly vaporised water with a small quantity of flavourings, propylene glycol, and (optionally) nicotine. None of these ingredients are considered cancer-causing agents.
Who can use electronic cigarettes?
Egar is intended for use only by adults. It is not intended to be used by pregnant or lactating women, people with health problems, or people who are sensitive to nicotine.
Egar products are NOT for sale to minors or anyone under the age of 18. Please see our terms & conditions for more information.
How does nicotine affect the body?
(Please note we also supply cartridges with no nicotine)
Nicotine is an alkaloid found in certain plants, predominantly tobacco and in much lower quantities in tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant and green peppers. The effects of nicotine can last from minutes to hours.
The carcinogenic properties of nicotine in a standalone form (i.e. separated from smoking or chewing tobacco) have not been evaluated by the International Agency for Research on Cancer. Current available literature indicates that nicotine in standalone form does not promote the development of cancer in healthy tissue and has no mutagenic properties.
How do E-cigarettes compare with traditional tobacco cigarettes?
Cigarette smoke contains about 4,000 chemical agents, including over 60 carcinogens, substances such as carbon monoxide, tar, arsenic, cyanide, benzene, formaldehyde, methanol, acetylene, ammonia, lead – all of which can cause cancer.

What is a cartridge?
The cartridge contains the ingredients vaporised in the ionising chamber of the electronic cigarette, producing the vapour which is inhaled. Cartridges are available to suit our Deluxe and Ultimate starter kits.
The taste is uniquely formulated to resemble different strengths and flavours of tobacco. They are also available with different nicotine strengths, or with zero nicotine.
How long will a cartridge last?
- 1 cartridge = 300 puffs
- 1 traditional cigarette = 12–15 puffs
- 15 x 20 (cigarettes in a pack) equal to 300 puffs
- ...therefore 1 cartridge is equal to a pack of 20 cigarettes
When do I need a new cartridge?
When the vaporisation and "smoke" decreases, we recommend that you replace the cartridge, and if necessary charge the battery.
How long will the battery last?
- The battery will last for approximately one day with normal use
- However, our starter kits include 2 batteries for your convenience – you can use one while the other is being charged
What about the Disposable Egar?
- The Disposable Egar will last about as long as a pack of 20 traditional cigarettes (300 puffs)
- It is not refillable and the battery is not rechargeable
- Perfect for a night out on the town... then throw it away!
Can I smoke electronic cigarettes anywhere?
Yes. Since it's non-flammable, contains no tobacco, and produces no second-hand smoke, it is not prohibited by law. Customers have used the electronic cigarette in restaurants, on planes, at work and in other places where traditional smoking is banned.
Still, do not be surprised when people ask you about smoking our product. After all, to the casual observer, using the electronic cigarette creates the appearance of traditional smoking. Customers report that simply explaining to others how it works usually creates acceptance for using the product anywhere.
What is the "smoke" that is released?
The "smoke-like" vapour that is released from Egar is simply condensation that evaporates into the air within seconds, not unlike the functioning of a humidifier.
What does the electronic cigarette taste and smell like?
Most users of electronic cigarettes will tell you the flavour emitted by the product replicates tobacco cigarettes. Yet, the odour from it is barely noticeable unlike traditional tobacco cigarettes that create lingering, difficult-to-neutralise smell in hair, rooms, cars and clothing.
Will the electronic cigarette set off smoke-detectors?
No. Egar only emits harmless water vapour which will not set off smoke alarms. Egar can even be used on planes!
Do I need a cigarette lighter or matches?
No, the electronic cigarette does not burn or require ignition. It is completely non-flammable.
How do I switch it on?
Our "Deluxe" and "Ultimate" models have a small button which should be depressed while inhaling.
The disposable models work automatically when you inhale, and do not have to be switched on or off.
Can I use any type of battery?
No, the batteries are specially designed to fit the Egar ioniser.
How do I recharge the battery?
- Please use the power charger supplied with your Egar.
- Our "Ultimate" model can also be charged via a USB port on your computer, or on-board an aircraft.
- The battery should be recharged after each day of normal use.
- Disposable Egars are not designed to be recharged.
