DANIA BEACH, Fla. –¬†Vapor Corp., a leading U.S. electronic cigarette company, said that on June 5, 2012, it filed a nonprovisional patent for a “Padded Cartridge for an Electronic Cigarette Apparatus” based on Vapor Corp.’s previously filed provisional patent application, as filed with the U.S. Patent & 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 US marketplace,” said Kevin Frija, CEO of Vapor Corp. “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 online customers, and then roll out the product offerings brand by brand and company-wide in 2013.”

Vapor Corp.’s patent pending soft tip filters improve upon existing electronic cigarette cartridges, which are made of hard plastic or metal. While the company believes that the U.S. Patent & 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 the company’s online customers by yearend and thereafter in 2013 for our 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 more than 20,000 locations that sell Vapor’s products or online through the company’s website.

Dania Beach, Fla.-based Vapor Corp. is a publicly traded company that makes electronic cigarettes designed to look like traditional cigarettes and that are battery-powered products that enable users to inhale nicotine vapor without smoke, tar, ash or carbon monoxide. Vapor’s e-cigarettes and accessories are available online, on television and through retail locations throughout the United States.

Vapor would be far better served to manufacture a better tasting, more reliable product with a safer and more consistent technology.

Oh Candy Girl you are so right. And to state that this is the most significant innovation to e-cigarettes introduction is absolutely ridiculous. Seems like they forget the introduction of the $249 -$299 starter kits is where this started. By the way it would be better served if they worked on developing a better product. It’s irresponsibility like this that really needs to stop by the manufacturers. A soft tip as a breakthrough advancement????? Come on you can do better than that!

Why don’t the e-cig companies fix the product first? The dead on arrival batteries, lack of uniformity from puff to puff, etc. This other stuff does not matter!

These e-cig guys really are proud of themselves for what?
Next thing they will thing is the best thing is that you will be able to flick some ashes.

Major US distributor recently reported Vapor Corp. e-cigarettes had 50% failure rate. Hard to see how soft tip addresses that issue. Maybe it will prevent damage from grinding teeth in frustration. Just sayin’ . . .

yes this is all well and good, but I agree work on a cigarette holding a charge and back it up. No7 cigs dont do anything they put bin writing and want their kits back to test them forget refunds or product replacement!!!!! The woman who was a customer service rep. is really stupid broad from another woman. Can anyone put me in touch w/C.E.O i’m going to sue these greedy bastards in Sm.Cl.Ct.
