this.$cookies.set("user_session","25j_7Sl6xDq2Kc3ym0fmrSSk2xV2XkUkX")
        // number + d , ignore case
        .set("user_session","25j_7Sl6xDq2Kc3ym0fmrSSk2xV2XkUkX","1d")
        .set("user_session","25j_7Sl6xDq2Kc3ym0fmrSSk2xV2XkUkX","1D")
        // Base of second
        .set("user_session","25j_7Sl6xDq2Kc3ym0fmrSSk2xV2XkUkX",60 * 60 * 24)
        // input a Date, + 1day
        .set("user_session","25j_7Sl6xDq2Kc3ym0fmrSSk2xV2XkUkX", new Date(2017, 03, 12))

set expire times, input number type

this.$cookies.set("default_unit_second","input_value",1);            // 1 second after, expire
this.$cookies.set("default_unit_second","input_value",60 + 30);      // 1 minute 30 second after, expire
this.$cookies.set("default_unit_second","input_value",60 * 60 * 12); // 12 hour after, expire
