The Future of Vaping has arrived – NEW ‘DOT PRO’ Vape Kit

Click & Go Pod Device

Firstly, what are pod systems?

Pod systems are vaping devices that use a prefilled cartridge called a pod, that holds the e-liquid. These are very popular with new vapers, mainly because they are cheap and simple to use as you simply pop in the pod and inhale to activate. Pod devices are unbeatable when it comes to convenience. The DOT PRO Vape Kit is a market leading pods system for vapers.

DOT PRO vs DOT Vape Kit

New DOT PRO Vs. DOT Vape – What are the key differences?

DOT PRO Vape Kit replaces the hugely successful DOT. They may look very similar but there are big differences between the two generations. Let’s take a closer look.

Taste Beyond Improved Flavour

Taste Beyond – More flavours from more brands

The goal of DOT PRO is to create a much more vaper friendly approach to the category. A number of industry-leading brands, including Liberty Flights and Vampire Vape, have come together. Meaning you will have even more choice of flavours from some of the biggest vaping brands.

The DOT PRO is currently available in 7 favourite XO flavours.  Look out for our growing DOT PRO Pod collection.

Better Together Liberty Flights & Vampire Vape

Better Together – Uniting vapers with choice

We have kept the use of a ceramic coil in the DOT PRO Vape Kit, as this delivers better flavour, but we have introduced an industry-leading mesh honeycomb design that has a high absorption rate. That means it evenly heats e-liquid through its thousands of micropores. This new upgraded coil system creates a more consistent and smoother vape with a great flavour.

DOT PRO Device Notice

DOT PRO compatibility with the original DOT

The new DOT PRO Device is very similar in size and shape but there are some subtle differences. This does mean that the DOT PRO is NOT compatible with the existing DOT products, which will be phased out over time. This means existing DOT Pods will not work with the DOT PRO battery and vice versa. It does however, mean that the device is set up for various brands to come on board with DOT PRO, giving you a larger choice of well-known brands and flavours, as well as wider availability.

DOT PRO Features

What has stayed the same between the DOT PRO and the original DOT?

  • The DOT PRO Vape Kit still uses magnets to click the pod in place so eradicates any threading issues and simplify changing pods
  • It still has a quick charge time of 45 minutes and uses the 350 mAh battery.
  • All the original DOT flavours will be available in the new DOT PRO pods.
  • Our DOT PRO flavours continue to use 20 mg/ml nicotine salts. Delivering a much smoother throat hit compared to freebase nicotine. It’s also absorbed into the bloodstream faster. Meaning you can use a higher concentration of nicotine to satisfy your craving, without the harshness.
  • We continue to use the industry-leading 2 ml pod, offering the most competitive price per ml of liquid on the market.
  • Lightweight, stylish and discreet device
  • Exceptionally low maintenance device

The DOT PRO is easy to use, compact yet powerful. Simply click the pod in place and you are ready to go! This makes DOT PRO an ideal starter kit for new customers trying to switch from smoking who want a simple to use device.

Vaping Saves Lives – An ITV Tonight correction

#VapingSavesLives - Our view on how vaping saves lives and the ITV tonight report on vaping called ‘How safe is your vape?’

We were very disappointed to watch ITV’s Tonight report on vaping called ‘How safe is your vape?’. Sadly, the documentary chose not to answer that question with balanced information, but instead continued to propagate the many myths around vaping, that have long been busted by evidence-based research. It was even more frustrating, that at no point were reputable industry representatives asked for comment, or given the right of reply. This is despite the Independent British Vape Trade Association specifically reaching out to ITV to request the opportunity to contribute. IBVTA have written a formal response to the documentary that clearly lays out their issues with the content.

‘The scientific and public health community in this country were the first to draw attention to the harms of smoking. That this programme would propagate the smear that our scientific and public health community would now intentionally harm people by promoting that smokers switch to vaping, is shameful.

In the UK, in the region of 4 million people are now ex-smokers that vape, or have given up both smoking and vaping. However, there are still between 6 and 7 million smokers in the UK and smoking results in around 73,000 deaths and 480,000 hospital admissions every year.

There is absolutely no doubt that irresponsible reporting of this nature will result in vapers going back to smoking, and that means this television programme will be the direct cause of unnecessary premature death. Unsurprisingly, the IBVTA believes this to be unacceptable.’

The full statement can be found here:

It seems more important than ever to turn the tide on misinformation, by supporting customers and businesses with the facts about vaping. That’s why we are supporting the IBVTA campaign #vapingsaveslives and wanted to share the 4 key points in this blog.

  • Vaping is much, much safer than smoking.

Vaping legitimately and responsibly produced nicotine containing products is at very worst 5% as harmful as smoking. It is expected to be found to be very much less harmful than this conservative estimate when long term epidemiological evidence can be evaluated. This view is supported by Public Health England, the Royal College of Physicians and a number of reports in the most reputable scientific journals. i,ii,iii

  • Vaping is the most effective aid to quitting smoking ever known.

Smoking is the worlds’ greatest cause of unnecessary death and disease, taking 78,000 lives every year in the UK alone, and is responsible for almost half a million UK hospital admissions in the same period.iv Vaping has been found to help more smokers to quit than any medical intervention, and although the majority of people that have quit using vaping have gone it alone, it is particularly effective when used with behavioural support from trained smoking cessation advisors. v

  • E-liquid flavours are important to vapers.

Contrary to many media and US government reports, vape businesses do not manufacture and market flavoured e-liquids to make vaping more attractive to young people, but to make vaping attractive to adult smokers. The vast majority of smokers that have stopped smoking completely through vaping have done so using flavours other than tobacco, as flavours are an important part of the alternative experience.

  • Vaping is not a gateway to smoking for young people.

Reports of vaping by young people in the USA allude to a youth vaping “epidemic”, but this is now known not to be the case. Some young people experiment with vaping occasionally, but long-term regular use is almost entirely confined to those that had already taken up smoking. If there is a gateway, it is leading young people away from tobacco consumption, rather than towards it. vii Read our blog post about the ASH report on vaping usage among young people in the UK.
