Benefits of Vaping

Why Vape:

There are many reasons why vaping has emerged as a popular alternative to smoking, so we thought we would break down some of the most common reasons people are switching.

Vaping is widely considered to offer a safer alternative to smoking tobacco. An expert independent review conducted by the Public Health England concluded that e-cigarettes are around 95% less harmful than tobacco, with little evidence to suggest they act as a gateway into smoking for children and non-smokers. With vaping, there’s also no more cigarette burns or pungent smoke smells.

Vaping is a significantly cheaper substitute compared to cigarettes. One pack of Phix Pods (4pk) costs NZ$39.90, which is the equivalent to a carton of 200 cigarettes (approx NZ$250-$290)

One Pod lasts approximately 450-500 puffs (Roughly the equivalent amount of puffs found in 50 cigarettes).

At Vape Merchant, we stock a wide selection of premium flavours in a variety of nicotine strengths. From the original tobacco notes with a hint of sweet that’s found in Phix Original Tobacco, to Ice for a traditional menthol taste or the sweet & cool grape, Vape Merchant has a flavour from a variety of suppliers to please every vaper’s palette.

Research has shown e-cigarettes produce very little waste and will have a smaller impact on the environment compared to cigarettes. There is mounting evidence e-cigarettes vapor emissions produce less harmful second-hand emissions for other humans and the environment. Comparatively, Global cigarette consumption has hit 5.5 trillion cigarettes, and it’s estimated 766 million kilos of cigarette butts end up as litter each year, with more than 540 million trees being cut down each year to create the paper, filters and packaging to make cigarettes.

Across a range of different products we stock, there are varying nicotine strengths on offer, this helps users to regulate and monitor their nicotine consumption. Depending on your personal preference, you can vape various strengths of nicotine from 0mg/ml (0%) to 50mg/ml (5%) with our products, allowing you to manage and control your nicotine intake with ease.
