The MarkTen Cartomizer kit was released in July 2013 in Indiana by Altria, previously known as Phillip Morris. Altria is the maker of Marlboro cigarettes, and is also the largest tobacco company in the United States. Of the three largest tobacco companies, Altria is the slowest to move into the e-Cigarette market.
There aren’t many details on the MarkTen Cartomizer kit at this time but we do know that the MarkTen kit will include disposable cartridges which will, at least initially, be available in Tobacco and Menthol flavors. The kit will also come with a rechargeable Lithium Ion battery. It is unknown if the device will be USB charged or if it will include a PCC (portable charging case), which would charge the e-Cig batteries while in the user’s pocket or purse.
