Elephone make a break for the E-cig market with the ELE Cigar


ELE Cigar

No, this is not some elaborate joke, phone maker Elephone have in fact launched a new lifestyle product. The Elephone Cigar is an E-cigarette.

We’ve seen smartphone makers diversify in to other markets. Xiaomi, for example have their range home gadgets, e-vehicles, accessories and TV’s, and even Meizu, Huawei and LeTV are now making more than just the humble Android phone.

Elephone have taken a different approach, one we haven’t seen from another phone maker so far, and one we aren’t likely to see other companies follow. Elephone have launched the Elephone Cigar, their version of an E-cig.

The device appears to be made of metal with a leather grip (with the Elephone logo), and there is a USB plug in the base for charging. We don’t have a clue how much it will sell for or when it be available either.

ELE Cigar

What do you think of Elephone’s latest device? Is the E-cig market a shrewd move for the phone maker?

    The USB port will probably break within 4 months, and it’ll also explode, just because……Elecrap

    that would help people quit smoking because after pre-order this it would take months before shipping and at the end people would just give up on smoking.
    Great job Elephone!

      Don’t forget it would require a crucial update to actually work right which would never be available. And two weeks after it released they will announce it’s successor.

    These are oem product well selected by elephone, for them, it’s a way to get more customer, their phones are not bad ! So i’ll just try this ecig and see if it’s a good thing i now have a aspire so i will probably make some review or a versus 🙂
