- Do not carry batteries not inserted in the device (but carried separately) in a pocket in contact with loose coins or keys. Use a sleeve to protect the poles if carrying loose batteries.

Q).How expensive will be vaping?
- As compared to smoking cigarettes, vaping turns out to be significantly cheaper in countries such as US and UK, but that is because a pack of cigarettes is heavily taxed and hence expensive. In India, the cost of a pack of cigarettes is relatively lower, thus the cost of smoking and the cost of vaping is approximately the same.

- After opening the package, read the manual for instructions. You will need to join the tank to the battery, fill in the e-liquid, prime/wet the coil, turn on the device, inhale and exhale, and recharge when required. You will have to replace the coil from time to time. Don’t worry if this sounds intimidating. We are happy to help you. Give us a call at 1800-2121-474.
