Information Assembled By James Allan | 8-23-20
First of all, its been reported there are well over 600 E-Cigarette brands. Most are just trial and error brand names by huge chinese E-Cig companies. 99.9% of E-Cig vape hardware is produced in china. Israel has an up and coming E-Cig vapor hardware manufacturer being built named "Jupiter Research" to supply E-Cig manufacturers with their own E-Cig builds. United States E-Cig vape hardware manufacturers are non existent. U.S. manufacturers contract out to chinese company vendors to do their builds. "If You Don't See A Vape Hardware Manufacturer On This List Then You Most Likely Are Purchasing Your Vape Hardware From A Chinese Company".
Chinese companies will brand their products exported into the United States with attractive U.S. English names like, "Geekvape", "Aspire", "Smok", "Eleaf", "Joyetech", "Vaporesso", "Innokin", "Demon Killer" and on and on.
I will add all U.S. vape hardware manufacturers as soon as I come across them but right now out of 600 E-Cig brands there are currently only 14 and they outsource their manufacturing to chinese vendors. I'm sure one of these days "Philip Morris" of Marlboro fame will enter the E-Cig market and just take the cake but for now the United States has only " 1 " E-Cig vape hardware manufacturer which is "Volcano" out of the 600 brands. The "Volcano" U.S. brand manufactures very little product.
You may have heard that E-Cigs were invented in China first but this is not the factual truth. The first "Electric Vaporizer" was patented in the U.S. in 1930 for medical compounds which are now know as today's E-Cigarettes. In 1963 Herbert A. Gilbert filed the first U.S. patent for a "Smokeless" E-Cigarette in the United States. In the 1990's several other patents were filed for E-Cig designs and in 1998 the U.S. "Philip Morris Company" produced and began selling the "Accord" E-Cig far ahead of the first E-Cig invention and production out of china.
It's all over the place that a chinese pharmaceutical professional invented and produced the first E-Cigs to get his father to stop smoking and this is wholly false at least relating to whom was the first inventor of E-Cigs. It's like an old wives tale that got started and over time became a false truth that everyone came to believe without doing any research and checking the facts.
The chinese pharmaceutical professional was the one who developed the E-Juice into a viable product for everyday use. As a capitalist he put his developed product into full E-Cig production in 2004 for the chinese market only and then exported them big time to Europe in 2006 as popularity grew. The United States was last of the populist countries to start using E-Cigs with NJoy importing chinese produced E-Cigs with their brand on them late in 2006.
