The company’s electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes are battery-powered products that enable users to inhale nicotine vapor without smoke, tar, ash, or carbon monoxide. The company offers rechargeable and disposable electronic cigarettes in two varieties, including a two-piece unit, which it markets under its DUO product line; and a three-piece unit, which it markets under its TRIO product line. The DUO The DUO’s 2-part construction (battery component and cartridge) features a disposable all-in-one atomized cartridge (also known as a ‘cartomizer’). This cartomizer is replaced when the nicotine or nicotine free solution is depleted from use. The TRIO The TRIO’s 3-part construction (battery component, atomizer, and filter cartridge) features a separate atomizer from the cartridge, the atomizer is reused and requires separate maintenance through its useful life. Replacement atomizers are available for sale and are serviceable by the user. In the TRIO, the component that needs to be replaced is the refill cartridge (either with or without nicotine). Kits and Accessories The company’s electronic cigarettes are sold in kits that contain everything a user needs to begin enjoying their ‘smoking' experience. In addition to kits, it sells replacement batteries, replacement mouthpieces that contain the liquid solution, and atomizer, for its two-piece configurations, as well as mouthpieces with the liquid solution and separate atomizers for its three-piece units. It also offers electronic cigarettes with different LED configurations and embellished LEDs that resemble crystals. In addition to the company’s electronic cigarette products, it sells an assortment of accessories, including chargers, and simple and fashionable cases. The company also offers refill cartridges and accessories for its electronic cigarettes. Its refill cartridges consist of assorted flavors and nicotine levels (including cartridges without nicotine). Its accessories include USB, home and car charging devices, carrying cases, and replacement parts. The company has developed an universal fit mouthpiece that could be used in conjunction with the battery section of various other electronic cigarette brands.
