Hmmm comments?

Sort of Gizmo I think people might try then throw in the back of the drawer. Not cheap here, £42 for the kit then nearly £5 for replacement cartridges and look like a complete git using it. I`ll stick to the old fasioned method and roll my own thank you very much and suffer the consequences, besides, I`d miss the coughing fit in the mornings :smt005

I don't smoke so can't really comment ... thought it was an 'interesting' innovation.

Ooooo....I LIKE that idea. It would be the perfect thing to screw with the Smoking Nazis.

Them : " I don't want to breathe your nasty second hand smoke "

Me : " Shut the hell up. This stuff is safe and won't do any damage to either of us. "


The only disadvantage I can see is that I wouldn't have my lighter to throw at them.

The first thing to do is disconnect that ridiculous diode and would make the battery last slightly longer. But it is a good idea probably better than the lozenge. I've lost a couple of teeth using the lozenge due to its acidic nature. I've given up trying to quit for now but to have a smokeless/fireless system that would do less particulate damage in the lungs and reduce the number of trace chemicals that a cig. delivers is a good idea. Of course this isn't a quitting tool but anything without smoke is probably better than nothing well, other than quitting.

Trace??? WTF!

acetaldehyde (1.4+ mg)
arsenic (500+ ng)
benzo(a)pyrene (.1+ ng)
cadmium (1,300+ ng)
crotonaldehyde (.2+ µg)
chromium (1,000+ ng)
ethylcarbamate 310+ ng)
formaldehyde (1.6+ µg)
hydrazine (14+ ng)
lead (8+ µg)
nickel (2,000+ ng)
radioactive polonium (.2+ Pci)

TTS Chemical/ TTS Quantity/ “Speed Limit” PEL - TLV (1964)
acetaldehyde/ 3,200 ppm/ 200.0 ppm
acrolein/ 150 ppm/ 0.5 ppm
ammonia/ 300 ppm/ 150.0 ppm
carbon monoxide/ 42,000 ppm/ 100.0 ppm
formaldehyde/ 30 ppm/ 5.0 ppm
hydrogen cyanide/ 1,600 ppm/ 10.0 ppm
hydrogen sulfide/ 40 ppm/ 20.0 ppm
methyl chloride/ 1,200 ppm/ 100.0 ppm
nitrogen dioxide/ 250 ppm/ 5.0 ppm

Note that many ingredients far exceed the safe legal limits of 1964. Safety law limits are lower now; the chemicals are more dangerous than the Surgeon General knew then.


LMAO...trace... :smt005
