Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Household, Misc. Tech

E-CigarWe cannot believe that there is yet another e-gadget for those with a nicotine habit. Ruyan America’s Vegas Freestyle E-cigar is 5.6-inches long with a 50 ring size. It dispenses “1800 mouthfuls of vapor,” the equivalent of a carton of cigarettes. The Vegas comes fully charged with a 16mg cartridge.
