This is something I have become aware of over the last few months.


Most ecig hardware products only carry a 3 month manufacturers guarantee (some only 30 days). I have become aware of some ecigs failing because the charging ports fail because of constant plugging or unplugging, others where the in-built battery fails and on strip down found to be non-standard or unavailable, more because the fire button fails - hard to tell if they are made with inferior micro-switches. Most of these devices are probably classed as disposable as the cost of repair is quite high. Many of the outlets selling these are "specialist" shops run by individuals and the few "national" chains seem to have very young staff as employees.


I assume the great majority of these outlets try to hide behind the manufacturers guarantee and try to pretend the Consumer Rights Act does not apply to them. Quite a few of the faults I have seen occur just after the 3 month guarantee runs out. The attitude of staff to this seems to be "tough, nothing I can do" and try to flog them another device costing between £20 - £80 - a nice little earner for them. If this has affected anyone here then you should stick to your guns and get them to adhere to the CRA, the manufacturers guarantee should be in addition to your Consumer Rights and not a replacement for them.

Let's not freak out over this topic and be reasonable. 

Both e-cigarettes and regular cigarettes contain nicotine, which research suggests may be as addictive as heroin and cocaine. What’s worse, many e-cigarette users get even more nicotine than they would from a tobacco product — you can buy extra-strength cartridges, which have a higher concentration of nicotine, or you can increase the e-cigarette’s voltage to get a greater hit of the substance.
