Welcome to Modding Mavericks, where I introduce you to the people behind the vaping scenes.
I introduce you to Oliver Warburton, one of the Founders & Owners of Electronic Cigarettes LTD, which comprises of the following ecig companies:
TUC: How long have you been vaping?
Oliver: Two and a half years now!
TUC: What was your very first e-cigarette?
Oliver: Oh wow, it will have been one of the very first ‘takes’ on the Ego system…with a primitive atomiser on the end….with a generic RY4 tasting e-liquid. I still remember the first night, sat in bed toking on it and thinking ‘these aren’t bad!!!’. If I had know what I’d have in my hand right now (an Octopus RDA), I’d have probably not believed you!
TUC: Who or what do you believe has had the most influence on you in the vaping community, and why?
Oliver: Misinformation from those not in the know about ecigs! That’s probably an odd answer, but as Marketing Director for Ecigwizard and Neatcigs, it’s a very large part of my job to dispel some of the rubbish that is circulated about ecigs. In the UK, the media can and have been quite naughty in not properly researching ecigs and e-liquids. As a result we are very often faced with statements such as ‘you don’t know what is in your liquid’. We do- we source all our UK E-liquid from pharma grade suppliers, and all our flavorings. We have full GC-MS tests on the liquids as well as strict batch control.
Up until now, the media in the UK haven’t done a great job of promoting ecigs in a fair light….so as to who has had the most influence- I think it’s the informed vaping community itself that has done the best work for ecigs and vapers.
TUC: What would you say is your all time favorite movie, and why?
Oliver: I’ve actually spent the last year and a bit making my way through the IMDB top 250….and still going! In recent times though if I had to pick, The Dark Knight (specifically Heath Ledger’s almost schizophrenic performance).
TUC: What are some of your favorite foods?
Oliver: Who doesn’t like Pizza?!
TUC: What are some of your favorite hobbies?
Oliver: I am a huge sports fan. I have an obsession with fast cars, Psychology and while I’m still single..video games!!
Other than that, Vaping- I’m in the process of setting up ecigarettemag to collect independent product reviews and vaping stories.
TUC: Which ONE word do you feel best describes you?
TUC: Which ONE word do you think your friends would use to best describe you?
Oliver: Quirky (I hope nothing more extreme than that :P).
TUC: What flavor e-liquid are you vaping right now?
Oliver: Actually, 2-3 at the moment. We’re putting the finishing touches to our new Wizmix range and I’ve got a few concoctions on the go including a minty chocolate, a take on melon and a menthol that clears your airwaves out to say the least! 😀 All in 6mg.
TUC: What e-cigarette, or mod are you vaping right now?
Oliver: I’ve got a Zmax V2 RMS with a RSS Genesis Style RBA on the end. The latter is just about to be launched on our site, and is absolutely awesome. I’ve never tasted such a pure and clear vape before.
TUC: If you could live anywhere in the World, where would it be, and why?
Oliver: New York….because I could never get bored. I hate being bored!
TUC: What was the driving force behind the launch of your business?
Oliver: When we started it was because we were absolutely wowed with the product and concept. As a smoker, something that was a real viable alternative to smoking. That’s still a big driving factor, but on a day to day basis….fun. The flavours, the mods…we really enjoy what we are doing.
TUC: What do you feel was your largest challenge when first starting your business?
Oliver: Definitely cash-flow. Within the first 2-3 months, we were outselling so quickly we couldn’t keep up demand. Now we’re doing 100+ e-liquids in up to 6 different strengths, keeping stock is still very tricky…something that is a logistical challenge and difficult to explain to an outside person just how hard it can be at times.
TUC: What advice would you give someone who is thinking of going into business for themselves, in the e-cig industry?
Oliver: One of our big concerns is that there are many seeing the ecig market now as a quick buck. As a result there’s a rise in knock off devices and liquids with zero warning labels or care taken in manufacture. This gives our industry a bad name, so to anyone entering – please be responsible and take due diligence.
TUC: What one thing would you like people to know about you, the man?
Oliver: I like walking on fire
More about Oliver of EcigWizard
Electronic Cigarettes LTD comprises of Neatcigs.com, EcigWizard.com and UK-Eliquid.co.uk. Ecigwizard was originally formed over two years ago. We serve approaching 100,000 vapers across the world. You’ll be very hard pressed to find any e-liquid supplier in the world with the mega range of e-liquids we offer.
Customer service is paramount to all our brands as is reflected here. We have a 10,000sq foot warehouse and offices in Peterborough UK. What makes us different is we have the organisation and professionalism of one of the multi-million pound companies here in the UK (although we started with a self-funded £500 investment, not like the ciggalike brands). However we are vapers (not businessmen in for a quick buck) that offer the range and personal touch of a normal vendor.
