Electronic cigarettes offer many benefits, including the opportunity to improve one's respiratory health by switching from tobacco products to these e-cigs. Another benefit which often goes unreported however is the decrease in fire risk associated with the switch to electronic cigarettes. Official fire statistics for the United Kingdom show that more than one-third of fire related deaths are related to cigarettes and lighters. As electronic cigarettes don't require the use of a fire and don't have a lit flame, this risk decreases significantly. For this reason, eGo Battery recommends every smoker purchase an electronic cigarette starter kit to try and make the switch from tobacco cigarettes to their electronic counterparts," M Rose of eGo Battery declares.
