USB cigarette: Thanko strikes again


Famous crap gadget maker Thanko has updated its website over the weekend with yet another whacky USB device. Believe it or not but they are now selling a USB cigarette. Everyone is familiar with the concept of electric cigarettes by now, but Thanko’s version works in a slightly different way.

Thanko says its USB cigarette is particularly healthy as it doesn’t have nicotine or tar. Users inhale a substance that apparently tastes like sweet mint, but my guess is smokers are supposed to get the feeling of holding and smoking a cigarette.


The cigarette charges via USB (which takes 2-3 hours for some reason) and comes with an atomizer and 11 filter butts. It costs $33 and should show up in Thanko’s English online store soon.
