Redesigning the E-Cigarette

Smoking is the leading preventable cause of death in the U.S. and an epidemic that has more than 45 millions Americans hooked. Thanks to the advent of battery powered electronic cigarettes there may be an easier way to quit. As thrilled as we are to see an alternative to smoking we can not say the same for the design. If your considering to make the switch prepare yourself to be underwhelmed with the options in front of you. This first generation of e-cigarettes lack aesthetic appeal and any sense of brand identity. We’re excited to see this product transform (aesthetically speaking) with its growing success. In the meantime, here are some concepts brought to you by ANDESIGN  that add some variety to the mix. Enjoy

    Its very nice to see this subject covered by industrial designers however, is it me or most of these look and sound like the Provari variable voltage ecigs? The biggest innovation seems to be the adjustable dial in concept 1.

    The scale of all the batteries appear small for a battery designed for regular vaping and in comparison to the atomizers they would join to.
    Are these meant for disposble ecigs? Concept 5 probably seems like the closest to scale. It would probably help to scale reference with a tank/atomizer attached.

    Also if you are targeting people who are currently smokers and searching for an alternative, as it appears from the intro, buttonless batteries which activate as they inhale is probably easier for cigarette smokers to use. Additionally, simplified temperature settings seems more appropriate. Instead of listing the voltage (which would be for advanced users), you could just have temperature settings from 1-20 or whatnot.

    Personally I’d go with the dial feature of 1, with the end pieces of 2, using the tube aesthetic of 3 and a larger scale. Something like that.

      Thanks for the feedback. We had a lot of fun building these concepts and will be refining them according to the suggestions we receive. Good point on the scale reference.
