About Jupiter IO 3
This new handset from Vaporcode includes an e-cigarette as a part of the case and you can load your favorite cartridge in your favorite flavor. The phone measures the number of puffs you use and set targets to help you quit with the passage of time. A 3G enabled phone costs $299 and runs on Android KitKat 4.4 operating system.
The smartphone comes with two batteries – one to power the phone and another to power the vape. The overall battery life is shared so you can get a longer battery life when you don’t vape much. The company claims that the device has 16 hours of battery life.
How to use it?
Users only need to attach a flavoured liquid cartridge to the opening under a little plastic cover off the top and a mouthpiece to the phone and then smoke right out of it. It comes with a button to regulate the heat and offer a stronger pull. Each liquid cartridge costs $15 and provides about 800 puffs or four packs of cigarettes. They come in various flavours like mint, peach and coffee.
There’s also an app for the Jupiter IO 3 that lets you track the battery life, the flavours loaded, amount of liquid left in the cartridge and more. This helps you to quit smoking or cut down on your vaping by setting a goal. The app also alerts you when the user crosses the number of puffs.
