About

I am raising funds to get a patent that will make e-cigarettes substantially safer to use for e-cigarette users, by solving a large problem with existing e-cigarette designs.

I myself was affected by this problem.  Then I realized something can be done about it.

Most people believe e-cigarettes are safe, but there are still inherent health risks associated with them. My design will help mitigate health risks.  I will be working with device manufacturers such as JUUL and many others to include my design into their devices.

This patent design will also allow e-cigarette manufacturers to potentially avoid future government regulation by proactive means of addressing this problem with current e-cigarette designs.  Therefore, e-cigarette companies are likely to come aboard and include the design into their devices, which may help avoid regulation in the industry.

I am working with a new product consulting company to bring this design to market within 6 months.  I do understand that I am asking you to help with my campaign funding without knowing full details of the design.  However, I cannot discuss specific details until a provisional patent is obtained.  However, I can assure you that this campaign will both mitigate health risks, and mitigate possible further regulation on e-cigarettes.  Donating to this campaign requires a small leap of faith on your part.

Full details of the patent will be disclosed to backers once the project goal is met, and the provisional patent is obtained.  I will of course regularly communicate project updates to backers as a timeline and information becomes available.

Risks and challenges

Challenges: timeline is around 3 - 4 months, but could be as long as 6 months to bring the design to market
Risks: Manufacturers could refuse to add the design to their products for currently unknown reason(s). A few of the known reasons have been mitigated and included into the design to avoid refusal.
