The phone you can SMOKE: $299 Vaporcade Jupiter comes with a built-in e-cigarette to let you ‘vape’ and dial

Vaporcade Jupiter is claimed to be ‘the first and only cellular vaporiser’
Users can puff on an in-built mouthpiece linked to an e-cigarette cartridge
Details on phone specification are scarce, but it runs Android KitKat 4.4
It comes in two models and can be pre-ordered from $299 (£197)

From phones and tablets to keys and wallets, there is a lot to cram into our pockets and handbags.
But now smokers have one less thing to carry after a company designed a phone with an e-cigarette built in.
The Vaporcade Jupiter is claimed to be ‘the world’s first and only cellular vaporiser’ and allows people to text, email and take photos while puffing on the built-in cartridge and mouthpiece.

The e-cigarette part appears to be formed from a cartridge that clips into the top of the smartphone and comes in 30 flavours.
It adds an extra 1.3 inches (3cm) in length to the 6 inch-long (15cm) handset, excluding the mouthpiece, and users can add an optional hookah.
There are two choices of handset, both with 5.3-inch (13cm) screens.
Prices for the Jupiter 3G cellular vaping phone start at $299 (£197) while the Jupiter 4G LTE cellular vaping phone can be pre-ordered for $499 (£329) with the first customers expected to receive their devices this December.2EB9858400000578-0-image-a-7_1448274673445There are two choices of handset, both with 5.3-inch (13cm) screens.

Both handsets run Android KitKat 4.4, come with a ‘vaping app’ and have a built-in LED light band around the edge – but there are no details about the handsets’ internal specifications. A hookah (pictured above) can be attached to the mouthpiece of the vaping cartridge

They both run Android KitKat 4.4, come with a ‘vaping app’ and have a built-in LED light band around the edge – but there are no details about the handsets’ internal specifications.
A diagram suggests the handsets are fairly chunky, at 0.5 inches (1cm) thick, 3.25 inches (8cm) wide and 6 inches (15cm) long, without the e-cigarette cartridge added on.
By comparison, the iPhone 6s is 6.9mm (0.27 inches) thick.
Some critics have suggested the phone is a hoax and MailOnline has contacted the firm for more information, including more details about the handset’s internal specifications.
The Los Angeles-based company said on its website: ‘We have worked tirelessly to integrate texting, talking and vaping into one spectacular, innovative technology.
It’s thought to be working with Herbert A. Gilbert, who is seen as the forefather of the e-cigarette after patenting such a device in 1965.
It added: ‘You will soon vape your fluids, medicines or nutraceuticals through Jupiter,’ calling the smartphone ‘life altering’.
There is conflicting scientific evidence about whether e-cigarettes are safer than conventional cigarettes, with experts saying the debate is far from over.
They have been banned in some train stations and public spaces because of health concerns and worries they may simply irritate non-smoking passengers
