IEEE Battery Standards - a feature from vapers.org.uk:

Promoting Battery Safety

In support of electronic cigarettes, and its users, Richard Pruen is hoping to promote a standard, that contains light touch ‘guide to best practices’ is based on the latest evidence, welcomes (even encourages) innovation, protects small business, and users.

Common sense safety features should be expected by electronic cigarette users, manufactures, vendors, and trading standards bodies.

Richard is sponsoring the standard personally, as well as organising the working group.

RE: vapers.org.uk - Nothing About Us. Without Us.
Was speaking to the consultant psychiatrist in charge of the substance misuse service today. He's recently switched to vaping. You should hear him on the topic. Every time any proposal for harm reduction appears, the public health types scream any proposal down. They are terrified that anyone might just find the treatment pleasant. He is not allowed to mention ecigs to his patients.

Don. The last line of your post has to be the best example of bureaucracy gone awry I’ve heard in a long time. What is wrong with these pencil pushers  its his job to help people but he’s being silenced regarding e cigs which would help. Girl_cray2

RE: vapers.org.uk - Nothing About Us. Without Us.
A feature article from vapers.org.uk: 

Vapers in a Brewery

While it’s exhilarating being involved in vaping activism in the UK, it can also be deeply frustrating. The vaping community has such a wealth of passionate, talented and creative people that we should be able to move mountains. In reality we would be hard pushed to organise the proverbial in a brewery. Why can’t we vapers get our act together?
