“We believe the soft padded electronic cartridge is the most significant innovation to e-cigarettes, since their invention and introduction to the U.S. marketplace,” says CEO of Vapor.
Vapor Corp., a U.S. based electronic cigarette company, filed a non-provisional patent for a “Padded Cartridge For An Electronic Cigarette Apparatus” on June 5, 2012.
The patent was based on Vapor’s previously filed provisional patent application, as filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on June 7, 2011.
Vapor Corp.’s Soft Padded Electronic Cigarette Cartridge is a soft tip filter with the same tactile feel of a traditional cigarette filter.
“We believe the soft padded electronic cartridge is the most significant innovation to e-cigarettes, since their invention and introduction to the U.S. marketplace,” said Kevin Frija, CEO of Vapor. “We constantly strive to enhance the experience and comfort for those who use and enjoy our products. The comfort of the new soft tip filter will offer our customers the most realistic and similar experience akin to the filters of traditional cigarettes. We are truly excited to offer this unique remarkable advancement to our customers, and we plan to launch electronic cigarettes with these soft tip filters by year end to our on-line customers, and then roll out the product offerings brand by brand and company-wide in 2013.”
Vapor’s patent pending soft tip filters improve upon existing electronic cigarette cartridges, which are made of hard plastic and/or metal. While the company believes that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office will award it a patent for its soft tip filter, there is no assurance in this regard. Patton Boggs LLP, a Washington D.C.-based law firm, represented the company in the preparation and filing of the patent.
The soft tip filters will first be made available to Vapor Corp.’s on-line customers by year end and thereafter in 2013 for its Fifty-One, Krave, VaporX, EZ Smoker, Green Puffer, Americig, Fumare, Hookah Stix and Smoke Star brands of electronic cigarettes and will be found at retailers nationwide in over 20,000 locations that sell Vapor’s products or online through the company’s Website.
