Vapor Corp. Seeks to Further Redesign the Electronic Cigarette
DANIA BEACH, Fla., July 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Vapor Corp. (OTCBB: VPCO) (OTCQB: VPCO), a leading U.S. based electronic cigarette company, today announced that on June 18, 2012, it filed a non-provisional patent for a redesigned electronic cigarette with hermetically sealed components based on Vapor's previously filed provisional patent application, as filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on June 16, 2011.
This is the third patent application filed by Vapor in the past twelve months relating to its efforts to redesign the electronic cigarette to enhance the customer product experience. This patent application reconfigures the order of the functional components of an electronic cigarette and makes other technological enhancements to the electronic cigarette to expand performance, increase battery life and efficiency by eliminating airflow from traversing the battery compartment and hermetically seals the components.
"Electronic cigarette technology continues to advance and we believe that there is still room for considerable advancement. We, at Vapor, have undertaken to redesign the electronic cigarette and this latest patent is a continuation of that commitment," said Kevin Frija, CEO of Vapor.
With this filing Vapor's pending patents include the linear induction electronic cigarette that uses kinetic energy for power to eliminate the need for conventional charging, the Soft Padded Electronic Cigarette Cartridge which provides electronic cigarette customers with a soft tip filter with the same tactile feel of a traditional cigarette filter and the reconfigured electronic cigarette with hermetically sealed components.
While the Company believes that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office will award it a patent for this redesigned electronic cigarette, there is no assurance in this regard.
