    This ought to be interesting. Exactly how do they allow us to get our nic fixes without vapor or am I missing something here?

    Edit: I should have read farther than I did. But isn't the psycological side of smoking hand to mouth then exhaling a cloud? These would actually be good in certain places that don't allow vaping. Will they be available in the states?

    Good question. Essentially they come with a filter that is just nicotine....

    Not only will this be interesting, it will be a game changer. There is a billion daollar untapped market. Think of all the places it's frowned upon to vape because of the vapor.

    EDIT: Yes they will be available in the states. Keep an eye on the link above in the coming weeks. You'll be able to order right from there.

    They already have this. My father used something like this about 5-6 years ago. It was a plastic tube, you put a filter in the other end and puffed it. It felt like a cigarette.

    no electricity, just a basic kit. The doctor would prescribe a set of filters every so often.

    also it didn't look like a cig at all, but yeah... this product is just a smaller copy of the product my father used, just marketed differently and is going to be overpriced.

    I have the little nicotine inhaler and use it when I'm on a plane sitting where I can't stealth vape. It works but not as satisfying as vaping. I buy mine from NZ real cheap without prescription. You have little carts that are sealed until plugged into the inhaler and works like the ego t without liquid.

    Weird. Why not just avoid the hassle and just wear a patch?

    I remember the ads for those inhalers. They look like a travel packaged tampon with a mouthpiece. I was actually looking for those when I came across e-cigs. I have a juice that I ordered in 100% PG and it has no exhale vapor. It's really not nearly as satisfying as blowing out a big cloud.

    daisyd you are so correct, A coworker has one and it totally does look like she is sucking on a short tampon whenever she uses it...:oops:

    She says it satisfies her but I love my vapor, I would only use this is critical situations where I cannot get caught vaping.

    I can't see me buying one of these. I mean, it is the reasonable simulation of smoking which allowed to me give up cigarettes. I honestly don't think this would have done it for me.

    Ya to me this product seems pointless. Theres nic inhalers out so how is this different Imo id never buy one. If i cant see anything comming out my fix is never going to be achieved. Maybe Im biased as i vape but Thats just my opinion

    I imagine it's a little different for everyone. Hubby likes the cloud I could care less about blowing clouds out of my mouth *shrug*.

    I don't get it... Vaping without vapor?

    This could work for some people and I applaud their efforts. However, being granted a patent for something and getting approval for it federally are two different things...I wish them the very best in their endeavors because positive results could help vapers, too...

    Blowing a cloud makes no diff to me its the fixation and the imitation of smoking that keeps me from smoking so actualy exhaling something for me is a neccesity

    Upon further thought there's also the question... Does no vapor mean no flavors?

    Egads!
