Electronic Cigarettes International Group Expands Relationship with Tesco with the Launch of the New VAPESTICK® Advanced Vaping System across the United Kingdom

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–

Electronic Cigarettes International Group, Ltd. (ECIG), today announced that VAPESTICK®, one of the United Kingdom’s leading e-cigarette brands and a wholly-owned subsidiary of ECIG, has begun the roll-out of its new ‘AVS’ (Advanced Vaping System) e-cigarette product to all Tesco Express and Tesco Pharmacies across the UK. There are approximately 1,700 Tesco Express outlets and 375 Tesco Pharmacies throughout the United Kingdom.

The Company believes the new Advanced Vaping System product meets an identified gap for consumers in the e-cigarette marketplace, sitting between rechargeable cig-a-likes and refillable tank-based vaporizer systems. It allows consumers a way to vape without the messiness and risks of e-liquid bottles and traditional filling systems.

The AVS also has a larger universally compatible battery that provides greater vapor production relative to traditional vaping products and an ‘all-day vape’. In addition, each AVS ‘v-tank’ comes pre-filled with VAPESTICK’s v-liquid, in a choice of flavors and strengths, allowing for the convenience of vaping and eliminating any perceived concerns about handling open e-liquids.

The Company is positioning the AVS product as a means to supply the performance benefits of the latest vaporizer devices in a turnkey fashion that obviates the need for open e-liquids. The large V-Tanks hold a substantial 2.4ml of e-liquid for increased vaping duration, and when consumers see it finished, they merely swap out the v-tank for a fresh one.
