Celebs Love SmokeStiks – But Beware Cheap Imitations

Press release October 22, 2009 Lifestyle

It’s the latest celebrity must-have gadget, with big names such as Kate Moss, Simon Cowell, Sarah Harding and Rachel Stevens all using them. But now the makers of SmokeStik have warned the public to be wary of cheap imitations.

SmokeStiks are the high quality electric cigarettes which have conquered America and are beloved by Hollywood stars such as Leonardo DiCaprio.

They provide smokers with their nicotine hit without the tobacco – making them a much healthier alternative to conventional cigarettes, plus they aren’t restricted by the smoking ban so they can be enjoyed anywhere.

They have just launched in the UK during London Fashion Week with Lady Victoria Hervey designing her own model.

Supermodels Erin O’Connor and Twiggy were photographed with SmokeStiks last week and actor Rhys Ifans was even pictured using one on a transatlantic flight.

But it’s understood the success of SmokeStiks has led to a flood of inferior copy-cat products which aren’t made by SmokeStik and are of nowhere near the same quality.

The makers of these copycat products have attempted to cash in on the phenomenal celebrity backing of SmokeStiks – even though they are in no way associated with the product.

Brian Culwell of SmokeStik warned the public should be wary of cheap electric cigarettes from China, which aren’t manufactured to the same high standards, and simply don't last long before failing.

He said: “There are numerous cheap electronic cigarettes out there which aren’t SmokeStiks and aren’t allowed to call themselves SmokeStiks.

“When you're using something on a regular basis, you simply want it to work. SmokeStiks do.  That's the reason we have so many high-profile fans.”

SmokeStiks are available by calling 0808 120 1999 or by ordering online at and they will soon be available in Selfridges stores.
