Hop-on Signs Distribution Deal With USACIG "The Electric Cigarette"™

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - December 11, 2009) - Hop-on, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HPNN) has signed a distribution agreement with USACIG, Inc., the United States manufacturer of "The Electric Cigarette"™ and "The Electric Cigar"™.

USACIG is the only US-based manufacturer that makes the actual nicotine cartridges/products in the US.

Hop-on will use its existing channels and go after new distribution channels to distribute the "The Electric Cigarette" into the US market and abroad

Peter Michaels, CEO of Hop-on, Inc., stated, "USACIG's new disposable cigarette will retail for under $7.00 US. This new product favorably competes with a pack of cigarettes that can cost any where from $7.00 to 10.00 in the US Markets. I believe smokers will buy one of our products, instead of a pack of conventional cigarettes, because this product can be smoked around others, without the safety hazards and public harassment. Plus, the product is perceived as clearly healthier than a traditional cigarette." Michaels also stated, "The cigarette industry is beyond huge. When we become even marginally successful, this will be a great revenue stream for the company and Hop-on shareholders."

Here's how it works. When a user inhales through the device, airflow is detected by a sensor, which activates a heating element that vaporizes a nicotine solution stored in the mouthpiece. It is this vapor that is inhaled by the user. An LED light built on a circuit board on the opposite end of the device is also activated during inhalation, which serves as an indicator of use, and simulates the glow of actual burning tobacco.

The Electric Cigarette™ is an alternative to traditional tobacco products. It is a battery-powered device providing inhaled doses of nicotine by delivering vaporized water, propylene glycol, nicotine solution and other non-carcinogens. In addition to nicotine delivery, this vapor also provides a flavor and physical sensation similar to that of inhaled tobacco smoke, while no tobacco, smoke, or combustion is actually involved in its operation.

USACIG, Inc. is a US-based manufacturer of "The Electric Cigarette and The Electric Cigar"™. USACIG manufactures its cartridges in the United States and the electronics are manufactured in China. USACIG also has US-based doctors on its board to supervise any medical related issues or opportunities. For more information, visit
