Crown7 has announced a new electronic cigarette called the HYDRO that allows smokers to satisfy their oral fixation without being kicked out of restaurants or work for smoking. The HYDRO is the same size as a normal 100 length cigarette, but is smokeless and lacks tar or carcinogens.
The maker says the faux cigarette replicates the act of smoking using a nicotine cartridge, a microchip, and water vapor mist. The battery-powered microchip activates an atomizer to turn the liquid into a mist that looks like smoke. Each cartridge is equivalent to 10 cigarettes and comes in regular, menthol and ten other flavors like cherry and grape.
The HYDRO device sells for $79.95 and replacement cartridges are equivalent to two packs of cigarette and cost $10. A car and USB charger for the cigarette is also available.
