DATE:    0 comments

Since October 2015, the staff at the University of Washington Regional Burn Center in Seattle say they have treated 22 people for burns and other injuries caused by exploding e-cigarettes. This is precisely why all vape manufacturers, sellers, distributors, and re-sellers of e-cigarettes and vape products should carry liability insurance. Victims of these types of injuries are likely to sue, and the legal costs alone could be enormous, even if you are not at fault for the injury. About Lithium Ion Batteries in E-Cigarettes & Vape Devices Since there are no set manufacturing standards for vaping and e-cigarette devices, some lithium ion batteries may be substandard or may come with faulty charging devices.

We at Vape Insurance Pros keep an eye on the news when it comes to new research, regulations, or other news that could impact vape businesses. We thought our vape clients may find the new study recently published in the British Medical Journal interesting. Separating myth from fact has been a challenge for scientists studying the link between e-cigarettes and smoking cessation. One British study resolves at least part of the debate, finding that the increase of e-cigarette use is leading towards an increased success rate in quit attempts. In addition, the study shows that fewer people use nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) as a smoking cessation aid when e-cigarettes are available.

Indiana’s New Vaping Law May Have Violated Antitrust and Corruption Laws

Indiana’s New Vaping Law May Have Violated Antitrust and Corruption Laws

Men in black suits are interviewing manufacturers of e-liquids used in e-cigarettes. In 2015, Indiana legislators handed six e-liquid producers control of the Indiana e-liquid market, shutting down dozens of other manufacturers.

Only one security firm in the nation is qualified to perform the certification and has handed out only a half-dozen certifications and denied dozens of others. As a result, businesses have closed their doors. Placing the fate of e-liquid manufacturers in the hands o... Read more
