Thanks for the feedback, Alan. Even if one didn't intend you use them long-term, they'd still be ideal for flights and other places where you're not allowed to smoke.

We need to find out what the airlines' policies are on that.

Firstly, Trev, I'm disappointed to find that you're right.


Not quite sure how to take that.... :)

Agreed.

I gave up and I'm back on the real stuff now. Unfortunately :(

Major problem here is that we are severely resticted on choice, there only appears to be one type available that I can find.

Well, I'm currently back off the wagon. My girlfriend, who doesn't smoke, likes to have a cigarette when out at a party or something like that. She bought some the other day, smoked a couple, and then left me with the packet.

Sooo, I'm back on those until the packet runs out, then I'm back on the e-cigarettes. I still really think they're a viable alternative.

Incidentally, the second type that I bought is still going strong. It's been about a week now (admittedly with very light use), but it is still giving out tons of vapour, and the original uncharged battery is going strong!
Don't forget, there's much going on at the main site: http://www.britishexpat.com
