USACIG, Inc., the US-Based Manufacturer of The Electric Cigarette™, Ready for Global Distribution

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - August 26, 2009) - USACIG, Inc., the United States manufacturer of "The Electric Cigarette"™ and "The Electric Cigar"™, has released its products for mass distribution. The company is the only US-based manufacturer that makes the actual nicotine cartridges/products in the US.

There has been much speculation recently regarding electronic cigarette companies, with similar components, not being approved and even banned by the FDA. USACIG is working closely with FDA consultants, medical doctors and psychiatrists in designing the USACIG electric cigarettes and cigars, so the products meet the TTB and FDA regulations and provide an alternative to traditional smoking.

The company intends to provide the FDA with details of the fewer than 20 chemicals included in its cartridges. All products are individually approved and available in the market. The intent and long term goal is to put an end to the harmful primary and second hand smoking affects the some 4,000 carcinogens currently found in tobacco cigarettes give to smokers.

The Electric Cigarette™ is an alternative to traditional tobacco products. It is a battery-powered device that provides 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.

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.

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
