Five Days. Five Questions. 30 Great Prizes.

vapehuntecigsbeere Are you a vaping mastermind?

It’s been some time since we ran an ecigarette quiz, and we’d thought you might like another chance to show off your vaping knowledge.

So every day this week you’ll find a new question, each one provided by a different vaping blogger.

And every day you’ll get another chance to win the six great prizes below.

The Prizes

vapehunt-prize

Every day we will select one person with the correct answer to win all of the following prizes:

1. A Variable Voltage Battery
2. Aspire Dual Coil Clearomiser
3. Aspire Mini ET Clearomiser
4. Your choice of our bling batteries (metal or decorative!)
5. Five Aspire replacement coils
6. Five bottles of 10ml UK Premium Halo Eliquid

Two Ways to Enter

Entering is simple. Simply find the answer (unless you already know it, of course) and either:

1. Post the answer on twitter. Simply follow us, and insert the answer using the hashtag #vapehunt and referencing us (@thesmokersangel), so we know you have entered. Alternatively, simply click to tweet below. and complete the sentence.

@thesmokersangel my answer for the great #vapehunt day 4 is ___

2. Post the answer in the blog comments below.

(If possible, use the blog comments rather than the Facebook comments, as it’s much easier to contact if you win a prize.)

    the answer….its 91% , I think. Hate stats. If it was up to me, it should be 100%. Maybe 9% of people ticked the wrong box. Viva for vaping, yay!

    • James Dunworth July 7, 2014 at 11:51 am #

      As I remember (not sure if Klaus realised when he put the question together, but I was one of the co-authors of the survey) some people just didn’t have any health issues beforehand, other people said they had serious health issues that were not likely to be resolved by switching to ecigs. It’s still an incredible result.

  2. Vikki Prichard July 7, 2014 at 1:26 pm #

    the answer is 91% (though when they excluded dupilcates it was 94%). what an interesting read. would be great to do some more in depth studies and show exactly how great e cigs are helping so many people. ive not touched tobacco since january and cant believe how easy it is :) people should be encouraged and motivated by new research and prove the anti vaper a lesson!

    • James Dunworth July 7, 2014 at 1:33 pm #

      That’s great news, Vikki! Glad ecigs are working for you.

      • Vikki Prichard July 8, 2014 at 4:42 pm #

        the sadly abandoned quest was for the perfect coconut/pineapple/vanilla eLiquid. pineapple coconut is one of my favs :) x

        • James Dunworth July 8, 2014 at 9:05 pm #

          I’ll have to send them one of ours :)

          • Vikki Prichard July 8, 2014 at 9:48 pm #

            yes indeedy ;)

  3. Zoe July 7, 2014 at 3:25 pm #

    The answer is 91%

  4. LouPop13 July 7, 2014 at 5:37 pm #

    I found different results in the Article on the ECA, and actual Abstract of the Survey:

    A whopping 94% had said their overall health was better since beginning to use electronic cigarettes.

    The majority of respondents reported that their general health (91%)….. were better since using e-cigarette and none reported that these were worse.

    Just covering all the bases… :)

    Thanks for another great contest!!

  5. James July 7, 2014 at 8:13 pm #

    I’ll ask ECA to double check in the morning!

  6. phil July 7, 2014 at 8:14 pm #

    • James Dunworth July 7, 2014 at 8:15 pm #

  7. reddhott July 7, 2014 at 10:25 pm #

    94% reported an overall improvement in health.

  8. Lauren July 7, 2014 at 11:28 pm #

  9. reddhott July 8, 2014 at 12:20 pm #

  10. Vern July 8, 2014 at 12:28 pm #

    for question 2, I believe he wanted to make the ultimate Vanilla Chai Tea Latte

  11. bob July 8, 2014 at 6:11 pm #

    Sorry James,hopefully this is preferred way to leave answers,also on facebook comments page. Answer : I have since given up my quest to find the perfect coconut/pineapple/vanilla eLiquid

    • James Dunworth July 8, 2014 at 9:06 pm #

      No problem, Bob. It can be difficult to get in contact with people when they leave Facebook comments, when you leave a comment it is easy because you have your email address here.

  12. Zoe July 8, 2014 at 9:10 pm #

    Answer 2 is I given up coconut/pineapple/vanilla eliquid perfect quest

  13. Lisa Smith July 8, 2014 at 11:01 pm #

    Answer: 2 there were a few quests. I believe the answer to be either he gave up the quest to make coconut, pineapple &vanilla E-Liquid, but I also read he abandoned making Heaven in the dark E-Liquid (Cocunut & Chocolate) and that they have no desire at all to actually make any E-Liquids.

  14. LouPop13 July 8, 2014 at 11:48 pm #

    I’m going out on a limb here and say that he abandoned the whole “Fun With Concentrates” column, since he never followed through with everything he said he was going to do during his ‘experiments’ with DIY…

    • LouPop13 July 8, 2014 at 11:51 pm #

      “I am on a quest. This page in Spinfuel eCigs Magazine is going to capture my attempt at making an eLiquid, from the beginning to the creation of an eJuice ‘flavor’ that speaks to me. It is a journey of the eJuice kind.”

  15. Vicky Everson July 9, 2014 at 10:07 am #

    aw nuts, sorry, my phone didn’t show me these blog comments :/ I know I’m too late for day 1 but if I’m not too late for day 2 then my answer is – John Manziones now abandoned quest was to create his own e-liquids :D

    • James Dunworth July 9, 2014 at 1:22 pm #

      No worries, Vicky, there’s still three more days left!

    day 3
    VRMS – A method used to determine the waveform to be generated in variable voltage or wattage e-cigarettes that use pulse-width modulation. VRMS is a fairly new trend in electronic cigarettes and is capable of providing more accurate power regulation, especially at lower voltages.
