  • (1888PressRelease) November 13, 2008 - Miami, FL. -- A billboard for the new electronic cigarette "Fifty-One™" reads "Finally, the electronic cigarette that the world has been waiting for." While this may seem boastful, makers of Fifty-One offer some convincing arguments to support their claim.

    For one, Fifty-One resembles the look and feel of a real cigarette, a point that won favor among those smokers who tried the product. Another plus is the simple construction and use of the new e-cigarette. It has only two parts: the rechargeable battery and the disposable cartridge, which includes both the nicotine pad and atomizing mechanism. Screw off the old and screw on the new. It's that simple. When smokers compare electronic cigarettes, they can easily see that the Fifty One is a superior product.

    A key benefit of this cartridge design is that the atomizer is never reused, thereby avoiding problems with nicotine residue, build-up and clogging -- a common complaint voiced by those who have tried other e-cigarettes on the market. Finally, puffing on Fifty-One doesn't generate smoke. Instead, users draw in a "vapor" that is dense enough even to be noticeable when exhaled. While this may seem to be a minor point, smokers seeking a healthier alternative to real cigarettes appreciate how this simulates the experience they already know.

    This vapor -- which delivers a measured amount of nicotine -- not only is odorless but also is safe to breathe. No problems with either first-hand or second-hand smoke. This smoke-like look and experience is achieved with propylene glycol, an FDA-approved ingredient commonly found in toothpaste, mouthwash, moisturizers and foods.

    "I loved to smoke," said Fifty-One developer Sean Ben, who used to smoke two to three packs of cigarettes a day. However, health concerns and smoking bans encouraged him to try the first e-cigarettes that hit the market. Unfortunately, he found the experience unsatisfying.
    "The first e-cigarette brand I tried was very long and not shaped like a real cigarette," he said. "Also, it was hard to assemble and messy to use." So, Ben waited for a better product to come along. It didn't.

    Frustrated, he sought out a development team that gave the longtime former smoker everything he was looking for in an e-cigarette. He wanted a healthier alternative to conventional cigarettes, the smoke from which contains dozens of known toxins, tar, carbon monoxide and carcinogens. Without these, users of Fifty-One can avoid the dangers connected to smoking, including lung cancer and heart disease.

    Ben sought a more hygienic and socially acceptable smoking alternative. Since Fifty-One e-cigarette doesn't burn tobacco or deliver smoke, users avoid bad breath, yellowed teeth, smelly hair and clothing, smoke-filled rooms and dirty ashtrays.

    These days, Ben knew, a smoking alternative needs to be cost effective. Fifty-One has no tobacco, so users don't have to pay tobacco excise taxes and health-impact fees that average $1.18 per pack of cigarettes, according to the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids.

    A safety byproduct of this smokeless cigarette is that there is no flame, therefore no chance of catching anything on fire. Fifty-One also is environmentally friendly. It produces no air pollution and no carbon dioxide, and since a single cartridge is equivalent to two packs of traditional cigarettes, less goes into the waste stream. Even its battery is rechargeable.

    Smokers can purchase an electric cigarette starter kit that includes everything they need to begin benefiting from Fifty-One:
    • Two nicotine cartridges, which come in various strengths, including 8 mg., 6 mg., 4 mg. and 0 mg., as well as five flavors, including tobacco, menthol, chocolate, vanilla and coffee.
    • Two lithium batteries (one long, which lasts the average user a full day, and one short, which lasts about half that time).
    • Battery charger.

    In a world where people still will beat a path to your door when you build a better mousetrap, Fifty-One delivers a multitude of benefits.

    Sean Ben knows this is the best e-cigarette on the market, and he is anxious for smokers across the country -- and around the world -- to beat a path to the company's Web site at
