The Rise of “Smart” E-Cigs
We knew this time would come, and lately I’ve been focusing on articles within the community towards these new “smart” e-cigarettes. Just as you would have suspected and from gauging the markets track record, it was obvious there would eventually be a pour of these devices. In this industry and indeed, it’s a lot like others, once a new inventive product enters, there will be a flood of more to come.
And, here comes the rush of “Smart” e-cigarettes…
Just a bit over a month ago Klaus Kneale shared the latest news about the Supersmoker MP3 / Bluetooth device that has entered the e-cigarette market, then I shared the most recent news about Joyetech planning to release a new and unnamed device that is Bluetooth enabled, which also leads us to believe the new eVic Version 2 will sport the same capabilities as well. In addition, we continued the conversation in an article asking if Bluetooth enabled devices will become the next big feature in vaping. Signs are pointing to Yes.
The rush of “Smart” e-cigarettes has finally arrived, and now that manufacturers are starting to produce these technology packed devices, we’ll start seeing them enter the e-cigarette market more frequently. Matter of fact, the newest smart device is the Smokio, and the company distributing it is also called Smokio.
The company claims that the Smokio is the first smart e-cigarette, which we of course know is a fib used for marketing purposes. Anyhow, the Smokio is said to offer “in-depth information about a user’s consumption, capturing every puff, tracking health improvements and even calculating how much money using Smokio has saved so far” through the free Smokio app that is available on both iOS and Android devices.
Though the Smokio looks a lot like a regular EVOD battery, the $129.90 price tag will make you think otherwise. Don’t fret though, you’ll be getting a 900mAh Smokio battery that is of course Bluetooth enabled, 2 CE5+ e-liquid tanks with 2.0Ohm coils, a USB charger and a bottle of e-liquid with zero nicotine.
So, the question is, will you Smokio? – I’m tempted…
