USACIG Lands Disposable Cell Phone Guru (Hop-on) to Sell Its Disposable Electronic Cigarettes "The Electric Cigarette"

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - December 14, 2009) - USACIG, Inc., the United States manufacturer of "The Electric Cigarette"™ and "The Electric Cigar"™, signed a distribution agreement with Hop-on, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HPNN) USACIG, Inc. Hop-on will begin selling the Disposable Electronic Cigarettes into the US and International markets.

Peter Michaels of Hop-on states, "Worldwide, over 15 billion cigarettes are smoked every day, out of those 15 billion cigarettes, Hop-on is targeting those smokers."

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

David Worely, of USACIG, Inc., stated, "USACIG's new disposable electronic cigarette will retail for under $7.00 US in most US markets. USACIG and Hop-on are targeting Grocery Stores, C Stores, and Gas Stations and anywhere traditional cigarettes are being sold."

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 www.USACIG.com
