Frequently Asked Questions Concerning Smoke Grenades:

Can you expedite shipping?

  • We cannot expedite shipping and the options for shipping at checkout are the only options

Do you accept returns?

  • Unfortunately we do not accept returns so be certain before you order!

How do I activate the smoke bombs?

  • We have two different products. One is a fuse activated smoke stick that just simply requires a lighter or matches. The second is string or wire pull activated smoke bombs. These are activated by pulling the wire at a 90 degree angle in one smooth motion (no jerky pulling motion)


What Are the Differences with all the different Smoke Bombs?

  • WP40 - Wire Pull 40g by Enola Gaye: 70-90 Seconds
  • RP90 - Smoke Effect 90 Seconds by Peacock Smoke 
  • EG25 - Enola Gaye 25 Seconds: Mini versions of the WP40
  • Twin Vent or Burst - Smoke comes out of both sides and the main purpose of the "burst" smokes is to release all the smoke as fast as possible, so they last under 25 seconds.
  • EG18 - Larger version of the WP40 = More smoke. Lasts ~70 seconds
  • EG18X - Burst (meaning that smoke comes out as fast as possible, but only from 1 side) So they put out the same amount of smoke as the EG18 but in less time. They last around 30 seconds or so.
  • So in summary if you want them to last a long time, you want RP90 or eg18.
  • If you want them to put out tons of smoke as fast as possible you want the Dual Vent, Burst or the EG18X Burst.

Are the gender reveal products labeling discreet?

  • Cannon Color Indicator: If you need assistance differentiating the cannon, there is a number under the barcode specific to each color. In the bottom right corner of the barcode strip there is an individual number, either a 1 or 2. 1 is pink and 2 is blue (3 is silver).

  • Wick Smokes Indicator: If you need assistance differentiating the smokes you can check the code on the side of the smoke. REV1=Pink REV2=Blue

Do these stain clothing or anything else?
  • Yes they absolutely can stain. However, they only stain if it is very close to the end the smoke comes out. After setting the smoke bomb down, if you are 2-3 feet away and just standing in the smoke cloud, it should not stain your clothing or anything for that matter. They can stain the ground if left on their sides as well.

Are these safe to breathe in?

  • It is never recommended to breathe in smoke, but these are simple consumer level smoke effects, so if you breathe in a little you should be ok. 

Can they be hand held?

  • We do not recommend holding any smoke bombs in your hand. Please follow the instructions on each smoke bomb.  The wire pull products are "cool burning" so they don't get very hot at the base until about 50 seconds have passed, but we still recommend setting them on the ground after activation. Some customers do choose to hold them which we do not condone 

Can I take smoke grenades on an airplane?

  • No

Can I let someone under 18 use them?

  • No

Can I use them in a dry area that has flammable items around?

  • No

Can I use them at a sporting event or concert?

  • No

Can you overnight some to me?

  • No, we are unable to overnight packages. We can only ship ground (not air) because of the nature of the products so the options available to you at checkout are the fastest we can get your order to you.

Can I make cool pictures with them?

  • Yes, and please tag us on instagram @smoke.effect

Can I use them inside?

  • No, they release way too much smoke to be used indoors.

Can I send back the ones I didn't use for my gender reveal?

  • No

Can they ship via USPS?

  • No. Never. For any reason can you ship these with the United States Postal Service.

Can I stop the smoke from coming out once it is activated?

  • No, please don't try. That would result in injury. Never put your hand near the end that has smoke coming out.

Can you ship them to me in Puerto Rico or a PO Box?

  • No, these are not allowed to ship to PO Boxes because they cannot ship via USPS.

Can you ship to another country?

  • No, only to the USA.
