The E-cigarette needs little regular maintenance. When its indicator light dims, it’s signaling the need to change the battery unit with one that is fully charged. The Ruyan is controlled by an internal micro computer that cleans the device after 1500 inhalations. When the Ruyan’s indicator light shines continuously for 8 seconds it shows that the Ruyan’s computer controlled program is automatically carrying out the cleaning function.
It’s also important that the user/owner of the Ruyan keeps the battery away from high temperatures when charging; does not weld or pierce the battery; and, in the case of unusual odor, heat generation, discoloration, distortion, or abnormality of the battery during the charging process, cuts off the power supply, removes the battery and discontinues its use.
The Ruyan Vegas E-cigar is disposable, but will last for a number of weeks under normal use. It also stores easily and can be carried upright, mouthpiece up, in a pocket, briefcase or handbag.
Individuals who purchase the Ruyan E-pipe should read the instructions enclosed with the product to help understand the maintenance issues with this premium product.
The Ruyan E-cigarette and E-pipe are sophisticated electronic devices. They use modern microelectronic technology, rechargeable lithium ion batteries and unique, safe replaceable cartridges. When using these products, drawing on them will produce a water-based, nicotine-infused vapor that smokers find satisfying and bystanders find safe and non-offensive. Additionally, the products provide the physiological and psychological effects that many smokers require for a satisfying experience.
The Ruyan Vegas E-cigar uses the same technology, except in a disposable package, with a pre-loaded, non-replaceable cartridge.
The cartridges contain water, propylene glycol, nicotine, scents and flavorings and a membrane to suspend these ingredients. None of these ingredients are classified as carcinogenic and all, with exception of nicotine, are generally regarded as safe by US and international agencies. Nicotine is extremely addictive.
Pumping tests conducted on the cartridges suggest that each contains mouthfuls of vapor equivalent to the mouthfuls of smoke found in 1.5 to 2 packages of cigarettes.
The Ruyan Vegas has approximately 1800 mouthfuls of vapor, nearly the equivalent vapor to the mouthfuls of smoke produced in a carton of conventional cigarettes and it is meant to be disposed of after it ceases to produce vapor. Smokers who use it to replace all of their smoking activity report it lasts as long as a carton of cigarettes, while smokers who only use it in places where they cannot or would not smoke report it lasts anywhere from three to six weeks.
Tests have determined that what is expelled is what is in the cartridges, since no chemical reaction takes place, i.e. as a result of any sort of ignition or burning, there can not be any change in the ingredients of what is expelled. When nicotine cartridges are used, tests have determined that the expelled vapor contains only minimal amounts of nicotine, less than 1%, and that amount dissolves within seconds and represents no health risk to bystanders.
Nicotine is an alkaloid found in certain plants, predominantly tobacco, and in lower quantities in plants like tomatoes, potatoes, eggplants and green peppers. Nicotine is highly addictive and it is the chemical in tobacco smoke that causes smokers to become addicted. Its effects are not unlike caffeine, also a naturally occurring alkaloid, in that it causes an initial stimulation, and thereafter a feeling of relaxation, calmness, and an enhanced ability to concentrate. The effects of nicotine can last from minutes to hours. Nicotine has never been classified as a carcinogen.
Do not be fooled by imitators. The Ruyan E-cigarette is the original, patented electronic cigarette profiled in Business 2.0 in August of 2007 and called one of the best business ideas of the year. To the best of our knowledge, the Ruyan is the only product in this category that has commissioned extensive safety testing and analysis of the product, its components and its effects on users and bystanders. No other company can make the claims and the assurances that can be made about the Ruyan E-ciagette. They can’t, because they haven’t done the studies. And, our experience has been if they make references to studies and tests, they are misappropriating information commissioned by us and limited to our patented product. There may be less expensive electronic cigarettes available, but they simple don’t measure up!

The answer is yes. But, expect that you will be asked about what you are doing. Technically, there is no tobacco in the cartridges and no smoke is produced in any form. It’s been our experience that the issue isn’t so much that a Ruyan product is being used, as it is that others might assume that it is acceptable to smoke- given how similar the vapor of the Ruyan appears to actual cigarette smoke. It’s important to note, however, that when a smoker inhales the vapor as they would smoke from a traditional cigarette, very little vapor is actually expelled and it’s possible to use the Ruyan without a smoker drawing a significant amount of attention.
