Vapelock / Product


Vapelock is an e-cigarette with a lock that limits the user's smoking occasions.
In recent years, vapes have become a high growth industry with a surge in consumers. The use of vapes not only poses a risk to more users’ health, but also affects others in public environments.
Vapelock has added GPS to the e-cigarette, limiting where it can be used. VapeLock aims to make users aware of the impact vapes can have on themselves and others, and to reduce the use of vapes for health reasons.
