Electronic cigarettes for those that can't kick the habit

As we all know, kicking any habit can be extremely difficult. Now days, it's also difficult to find a public place where you can feed your cigarette habit. With the introduction of the electronic cigarette from Njoy, that no longer is a problem.

As featured at CES, Njoy's electronic cigarette gives you the experience of smoking and the nicotine and flavor you get from smoking, but it is done without burning or the nasty additives.
The non-flammable Njoy Cigarette is powered by a patented microelectronic technology, a tiny rechargeable battery, and a safe refillable cartridge which contains water, propylene glycol, nicotine, and a scent that emulates the flavor of tobacco.
Here's what you get in the Njoy starter kit:
  • 1 - Njoy Npro Electronic Cigarette (color optional)
  • 5 - Assorted Refill Cartridges (each cartridge equal to approx 1/2 - 3/4 pack of cigarettes)
  • 2 - Rechargeable Lithium Batteries
  • 1 - Lithium Battery Charger
The Njoy site advertises the kit for $64.95, but the shopping cart says $74.95. You can get a 10 cartridge refile pack for $19.95. You can also find it at fine establishments, such as Costco.

Perhaps not the best use of technology, but I'm sure it'll fill a need for many. Hopefully it wont encourage new "smokers."

The Njoy electronic cigarettes are a decent product. In fact, it was the first e-cig I owned. The only problem is that it falls into the FDA's "Chinese Poison" category as per their recent findings. Unfortunately, the FDA found the same chemical found in antifreeze in Chinese made e-liquid. I will only buy American Made E-Cigarette liquid at this point to be safe. God knows what their putting into e-cigarettes on the other side of the world.
