7 Heros of Vaping

Vapers have a tough battle on their hands; they have one of the biggest opponents you can get, the tobacco industry. But there are some great proponents of vaping, heroes, who are working hard to promote vaping and protect it and we think they deserve more recognition.  

Our Heroes are vaping guardians, serious and honest reviewers and the important advocates and promoters who help grow the industry so it can stand up to Big Tobacco. All are important and if you’re a real enthusiast, we highly recommend following them to keep up to date with developments.

Dr Farsalinos Hero

Dr Farsalinos


With Big Tobacco lobbying hard to put any blocks in place that they possibly can, the vaping community needs strong, credible, scientific voices in their corner. Dr Farsalinos speaks a lot of sense and fights hard for the significant benefits of ecigarettes. He has absolutely no problem calling BS against the WHO and other powerful organisations and publications which attack E-Cigs.  Dr Farsalinos we thank you. Please keep it up!

Follow him here:

Clive Bates


Clive is former member of ASH (Action on Smoking and Health). His blog provides superb information about the ever changing laws and their effect on the vaping community. He really tells it like it is and his blog is an important asset to the vaping community. Visit it, follow it, share it.

Phil Busardo


Phil is a Youtube vaping reviewer from the states. One of the first to really kick off the Youtube vaping reviews, Phil has continued to provide good, honest and detailed pieces. He’s trustworthy and impartial, energetic and entertaining – well worth keeping up with.


Scott Bonner


Scott is another Youtube reviewer very closely linked to the UK market. He provides good honest reviews and simple demonstrations/how to’s. As well as the reviews he runs a popular vaping forum…. And blows some top notch smoke rings!




Another Youtube reviewer from the UK providing very frequent reviews of new mods and atomisers hitting the market. Todd has a great personality and clearly enjoys the great service he provides. Well worth following!


And a shout out to the inventors!

Herbert Gilbert


In 1963, Herbert Gilbert patented "a smokeless non-tobacco cigarette". In his patent Gilbert described how his device worked, by "replacing burning tobacco and paper with heated, moist, flavored air." Not the finished product we know today, but Herbert Gilbert was the first step.

Hon Lik

Widely acknowledged as the inventor of the modern electronic cigarette, Hon Lik is unknown to most. Hon patented and created his E-Cig in 2003 and with the huge popularity of E-Cigs, you would think he’d have been an instantly rich man. But bad publicity and rival companies with copy-cat designs meant Hon had struggled to reap any significant financial rewards for his invention. Though he recently sold his patents for $75 million. Not too bad.

Ok, that's 7 but there are a few more to mention. The vaping movement needs to grow to make sure Big Tobacco can’t win. Celebrities provide an important endorsement and promotional platform.


Samuel L. Jackson

One of our favorite movie stars has been seen vaping in public on many occasions:


Keep it up Mr Jackson!


Kate Moss

Despite being photographed on the cat walk smoking cigarettes, Kate Moss appears to have switched to the electronic cigarette! Kate also reportedly spent £2,000 to have her driver courier her favorite E-Cigs over to her while she was on holiday – that’s the dedication we like to see.


Jack Nicholson

Another Hollywood A-Lister frequently seen using ecigarettes. Jack has always been a big and public smoker, so his switch to E-Cigs is great publicity to the cause. 


If you think we've left someone out who desevers to make the list, let us know! We're pretty sure we have!

Awesome blog, all deserving of a spot. We as vapers should never forget we have a day too, like when they have some big meeting to decide the fate of vaping our votes & opinions have been prooven to delay action before. I really wish I could remember the group name, voting 'a call to action ' was the last big online signature collection they needed to go up against the big wigs and oh so hypocritical tobacco industry, The US giants behind err maybe ill let you figure the brands out - kicking up the largest stink about ecigs, a document (ok even for me this I'd wow size) some 112 or 114 pages long anti ecig, not long after bringing out their own, hypocrisy at its best& more evidence they're financially motivated. If you want some more celebrity vapers how could you forget Johnny Depp, Leo Di Caption& Alan Titchmarsh lol seriously he does. Hold up few more here might surprise you. Catherine Zeta Jones, Paris Hilton, Dot Cotton (easterners)& Bet Lynch (Corri) are duel users, Jimmy White (snooker) Nikki Reed (twilight) and glitter boy Robert Patinson, Tom Perry, that Guy from the rolling stones Kieth Richard, DJ Chris Moyles, I'm running low now...Ryan Seacrest, aaaannnd Charlie Sheen finally 'winning' a few more have been noticed vaping the odd mini cloud idk its a full time thing so ill leave them off...I rant far too much anyhow

Please wait...
