The Scoop on Logic Cigarettes

News 15 Comments

By: Nicole Simonetti

Technology has changed just about everything in the world, but who would have thought it could change cigarettes? Electronic cigarettes have been taking the nation by storm and two entrepreneurs from Livingston, N.J. designed a disposable cigarette called Logic eCig.

Logic eCig is an electronic cigarette that just began selling eight weeks ago. After a year of developing the technology, the water vapor smoking cigarette was created. As an electronic cigarette, it does not contain carcinogenic chemicals, such as tar, tobacco and carbon monoxide.

Logic eCigs, an electronic cigarette, began distribution eight weeks ago. The electronic cigarette gives smokers satisfaction and claims to avoid the harms of an actual cigarette.

Chad Faulkner, a junior at Farleigh Dickinson University, fully supports the goals of electronic cigarettes.

“In comparison, Logic eCigs have much more benefits than an ordinary cigarette. Electronic cigarettes give smokers the sensation they desire without any of the negative side effects,” Faulkner said.

Faulkner supports the cigarettes so much that he has actually become part of the Logic eCig team and sells them.

One of the entrepreneurs has been in the fitness business for 20 years and has seen firsthand the negative effects of cigarettes through his one partners, a chain smoker. After doing research on cigarettes, he found that electronic cigarettes are a “smarter alternative,” he said.

Logic eCigs currently has six pending patents. “Our specialty is that they are disposable,” he said. Compared to other electronic cigarettes, Logic eCigs are much more convenient.

Some electronic cigarettes require users to put the nicotine in them and change certain cartridges. According to the entrepreneur, other electronic cigarettes tend to lose their power while disposable Logic eCigs do not.

“Logic eCigs mimic the four addictions that smokers have,” he said. The four addictions are the nicotine, the flavor, the hand-to-mouth movement and the smoke. Logic eCigs give smokers all four things in a healthier way.

Faulkner stated that students at Farleigh Dickinson were “reluctant” to making the switch from regular cigarettes to Logic eCigs at first. But, “upon learning about Logic eCigs and the benefits of smoking virtually anywhere on campus has led to popularity and awareness, and the future only looks bright [for Logic eCigs],” he said.

The electronic cigarettes are based on Israeli technology and are hand assembled in China. It contains nicotine and produces smoke with water vapor. The water vapor imitates cigarette smoke. It is the same smoke that fog machines produce.

Just like cigarettes, Logic eCigs come in different flavors and nicotine levels. The flavors consist of a tobacco-enhanced one, a special-blend and menthol.

For nicotine, there is the gold label which contains 18 milligrams; the black label that contains 14 milligrams; the sterling label which contains 11 milligrams and the white label which contains no nicotine.

“Cigarette smokers who have made the switch have been completely satisfied with the product and are even more satisfied with the choice they have made to quit tobacco for their own benefit,” Faulkner said.

There are many long-term benefits that Logic eCigs provide compared to an actual cigarette. For one, the smoke is odorless so not only will your breath not smell or taste like smoke but it also won’t stink up those around you, your clothes or your car.

People around you won’t complain about the fact that they are being effected by second-hand smoke anymore. The 4,000 toxins that actual cigarettes expose to the smoker and those around the smoker are no longer there.

Since the cigarette is electronic, worrying about lighting a cigarette is non-existent. There is no more possibility of burning things from smoking a cigarette. There is no more mess from ashes. Also, teeth discoloration won’t happen either. These are just a few of the many benefits electronic cigarettes provide.

Nicole DeBari, a junior at Montclair State, likes the cigarette strictly for the fact that her car will smell better and because she doesn’t have to worry about burning her seats.

The entrepreneurs of Logic eCig consider their creation their “fight against tobacco holocaust.” They believe that people that purchase cigarettes are purchasing cancer. “Stores are selling cancer next to candy,” one of them said.

About 30,000 cigarette smokers have switched to electronic cigarettes monthly. Logic eCigs have been on the market for eight weeks and are selling successfully.

“Since selling [them], the product sales have grown rapidly from week to week,” Faulkner said.

Brothers Bill and Gerard Meyer, students at Montclair State, tried the product. Each felt differently about it.

Bill Meyer enjoyed the cigarette. He liked it so much that he actually wanted to know where to get one. He tried the menthol flavored one, a black label, and believed the taste mimicked methol cigarettes well.

His brother, Gerard, felt differently. He was not impressed by the electronic cigarette. He especially did not like the menthol taste, saying that it was too minty.

The entrepreneur believes that the industry is profitable, but it’s more important that people stop smoking tobacco.

One Logic eCig is equivalent to about a pack and a half of cigarettes. A Logic eCig costs $14.99 and the average price for a pack of cigarettes is $8.

While you can order cigarettes off the website, it is still partially under construction and is expected to be finished by November 15. The website will contain more information about Logic eCigs, but for now questions on the product can be answered by Chad Faulkner at chadj.logic@yahoo.com.

Nov. 10 is the Great American Smoke-Out in the Student Center Quad from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

There will be one-on-one consultations to help smokers quit, an anti-smoking expo, snacks, a poster contest and free information. For more information, stop by the drop-in center.

    i bought one last night, am a believer, and am officially changing my brand of ten years from american spirits to logics.

    How do you know when the nicotene runs out without counting puffs to equal cigs smoked. There will be a transition window when nicotene runs out, the smoker won’t know immediately & cravings start. Then have a fresh logic. But how to know when without wasting an e-cig before its time?

    When the nicotine runs out, blue light will start blinking to let you know that it is time to buy new one.

  8. Joe March 19, 2011 at 12:20 am

    I didn’t think it was THIS GOOD.

    Im switching over.

    Hope the price falls to 5$ so it can compare to other brands.

    Just buy the refillable e-cigs. This guy is out to make a buck charging a whopping $10 a piece for these and they don’t last long either. In fact, they suck for any type of permanent solution for smokers. Good in a pinch, but that’s it. Too expensive.

    Beware of people like the FDA who are only out to make a buck off of the people they treat like lepers.

    it is meant to help you quit…i havent smoked in a week

  11. AE July 8, 2011 at 9:21 am

    Very well written and it sounds like a great product. I would caution the company not to *ever* use the terms safer when referring to ecigs. That is just luring the FDA to take action. Careful, careful…

    Logics was my first e cig, I liked it very much, the only 2 issues that bothers me is that I need to throw the battery away (not eco-friendly) and it is extremely expensive.

  13. DC August 15, 2011 at 4:03 pm

    i love this product i havent smoked in over a month however i wish they would lower the price because there almost as excpensive as real cigs here in NY

  14. Marie September 15, 2011 at 12:54 pm

    Yea they cost as much as a real pack of cigarettes

    And they don’t last as long as a pack I stop smoking newport 18 months ago then I found the ecigs the ones that last longer are the nuvo cigs and the give u the the fillers so u dont run out

  15. Matthew Boles March 29, 2012 at 7:54 pm

    I have bought and used three of the non menthol logic black labels. I fill that it does not equal 300+ puffs, and I know for fact the battery dies before you get all the nicotine from the 1.8% product. I have taken the ecigg apart and I have figured out how they have made them. They need to either make another batter that last longer, or make it where you can change out the battery. It is not worth the $11 that it costs. I fill that they are making to much money off of them to fix the issue.
