A new survey finds that e-cigarettes are widely loved by smokers, but not by non-smokers.
“The big e cigarettes, they have a lot of features that people love.
They’re really big, they’re really expensive and they’re good at getting rid of those extra bad habits,” says John Deakin, a professor of economics at the University of Queensland and the co-author of the new report.
“People are actually quite happy with those features.”
The poll of 2,000 Australians found that those who were currently vaping reported more positive attitudes towards them than those who had never tried them.
But for those who did not smoke, the findings showed no significant differences.
The findings, from the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ Smoking and Health Survey, found that people were willing to spend more on a new e-cig because of the “benefits” it provided.
While the survey did not ask about whether the benefits were worth the cost, it does reveal that those wanting a new cigarette were more likely to report a higher satisfaction with the product.
In the past, the research has shown that consumers who have never tried an e-liquid or tried one of the newer versions of an e cigarette tend to have a lower satisfaction with their experience.
However, the latest results suggest that the vaping community may have found a new level of acceptance.
“For me personally, it’s not surprising that I think that people who have tried e-cigs and have found them to be a great experience tend to be more satisfied with their own experience,” says Deakin.
“[But] there’s a difference between not liking them and having them, and finding them to not be a fantastic experience.”‘
It’s not about taste’There’s a number of factors that can influence the satisfaction of a particular product, but Deakin says it is likely to be linked to the characteristics of the user.
“When I say they’re not really that great, I mean that’s a big thing,” he says.
For example, those who are “happy with the taste” may have a better understanding of what the product is made of.
Or they may have an understanding of the characteristics such as the type of flavour, and the “mild” taste they’re used to.
This might be due to the fact that they’ve had previous experience with an e cig before, or that they were not used to the taste.
Similarly, those “liked the smell” might have a deeper understanding of how the product works and how to use it effectively.
Finally, those that are “enthusiastic about the technology” may not necessarily be those who’ve experienced the most success with an original e-juice, Deakin adds.
But Deakin thinks the findings point to a shift in attitudes towards vaping.
“It’s about taste.
It’s not just about the taste, it really is about what’s going on with the chemistry,” he said.
Vaping is a relatively new trend, and while it may be an area of interest to many smokers, Deak says the study may not be able to provide a definitive answer.
He believes the study should be used as a starting point for further research.
Some e-liquids are “truly great” and some aren’t, he says, but that doesn’t mean they’re necessarily good or bad for you.
“The big problem with e-vapor products is they’re great for a small percentage of people, but they’re terrible for the majority,” he explains.
“I think there’s still room for improvement.”
