Meet the World’s First Android Smartphone With an E-Cigarette
It runs on Android 4.4 KitKat version and offers multiple e-cigarette flavours.
If you’re bored of calls, emails, chats and endless Facebook posts with your smartphone, try the Jupiter IO 3 that also works like an e-cigarette.
This phone has been made by a US-based company, Vaporcade, and will allow you to make calls and text as well as smoke your favourite e-flavours. The Jupiter IO 3 is pegged to be the world’s first smokeable smartphone with a vape. This 3G smartphone costs $299 and you can buy the 4G variant for $499.
The smartphone has two batteries – one to power the phone and one to power the vape. The battery life is shared so if you do not vape much, you will get a longer battery life. The smartphone has an opening under a little plastic cover off the top. Attach a flavoured liquid cartridge and a mouthpiece to that and smoke right out of your smartphone.
It comes with a button to regulate the heat and get a stronger pull. The liquid cartridges cost $15 and come in flavours like mint, peach and coffee and each one provides about 800 puffs or four packs of cigarettes.
Moreover, the Vaporcade app on the phone lets the user track battery life, how much liquid is left, what flavour has been loaded in the cartridge and how many puffs the user has taken over time. It can also help in quitting smoking or in cutting down on your vaping by setting a goal. The app alerts the user when the set number of puffs are crossed.
Claimed to be approved by the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the information on health effects and the impact of vaping from the device, when compared to traditional cigarettes, is still not known.
