Is GMK Vape device safe? Does it contain formaldehyde?
GMK Vape device is in compliance with the EU formaldehyde testing requirements for e-cigarettes, and does not contain heavy metals, bacterial or fungal toxins. GMK Vape device is also in compliance with the Chinese national safety standards for e-liquid, electronic products, and is safe to use. All testing and analysis were conducted by Tong Ce Testing (TCT), an independent testing laboratory, the testing results of which are recognized by over 70 signatory countries of the International Laboratory Accreditation Corporation (ILAC) Mutual Recognition Arrangement. A bit about formaldehyde: according to the Chinese national indoor air quality standard, the formaldehyde content must be less than 0.08 milligram in every cubic meter of air. In this regard, inhaling 6 GMK Pods in one sitting is approximately equivalent to breathing a cubic meter of air in an indoor setting.

Does GMK Pod Vape produce secondhand smoke?
GMK Pod Vape does not combust, nor does it leave ashes, residual smells or produce secondhand smoke.
Can I take GMK Pod Vape with me on an airplane?
Typically, yes.But, when flying, the change in air pressure at high altitudes may lead to minor leaks. Therefore, it is suggested that GMK Pod Vape be packed separately from other valuables. Although vaporizers can be brought onto airplanes, please note that you should not use them!
How long does a pod last?
Each pod carries e-liquid enough to last around 600 pulls. How fast or how slow you finish each pod is based entirely on your daily smoking habits and how much vapor you take in with each drag. Compared to the average lit cigarette (8-10 pulls), you're definitely coming out on top!
How long can the device last?
Our vape kits are made to last! Hardy and durable, a GMK device used normally and safely need only be replaced when the standard service life of the batteries begins to deteriorate, which usually takes around 2-3 years.
Compared with cigarettes, which can do more harm?
Most of the recent studies documenting the short-term effects of e-cigarette consumption conclude that e-cigarettes are significantly less harmful than traditional cigarettes and reduce the impact of second-hand smoke by up to 95%. This helps bring down health risks not only for you but for the people around you as well!
Can I use it to quit smoking or replace cigarette usage?
All our of e-liquids are crafted and blended carefully by our chemists in order to create an authentic experience with a fresh twist. The main component of GMK’s e-liquids is plant glycerol - a mildly sweet substance that is far less carcinogenic than tar and other chemicals and byproducts often found in regular cigarettes. There may be an initial adjustment period where your palate adjusts to the mild taste, but rest assured that it's far from unpleasant.
Currently, we offer pods at two levels of nicotine concentrations -5% and 2%. As a company geared towards helping people the world over transition to healthier alternatives, we support customers who are keen on decreasing their nicotine intake. Since nicotine is a stimulant that triggers the brain’s reward circuitry, it is completely normal for consumers accustomed to a higher concentration to initially find the use of lower-percentage nicotine pods less pleasurable.
All GMK pod formulations utilize pharmaceutical-grade propylene glycol to stabilize the plant glycerin and tobacco oil emulsion. GMK’s propylene glycol suppliers meet the US Pharmacopeia's specifications and standards, ensuring consumer safety. Furthermore, our e-liquid delivers nicotine without the usual host of additives, chemicals, and toxins found in regular cigarettes, thereby greatly reducing the health risks posed by traditional tobacco products.
What are included in the Starter Kit?
Each starter kit comes with one GMK vape device in the color of your choice, one mint e-liquid pod, oneType-C charging cable, and an user manual.
