Why is alt. NZ’s most popular vaping device?

January 13, 2022

Alt. is a New Zealand company working toward a smoke-free New Zealand

The alt. brand was founded following over 4 years of experience in the New Zealand vaping industry through the retail chain VAPO. 

The team have heard countless success stories from our customers who have successfully transitioned from smoking to vaping, but despite the overwhelming success of vaping products there is still a significant smoking population in New Zealand; so alt. set out to design a product to change the lives of more kiwi smokers.

Through local and international research alt. recognised the need for New Zealand smokers to have better access to products, products that were simple to use, products that provided satisfaction and, importantly, products from a New Zealand company.

 

Helping Kiwi’s make the switch

 alt. is the definitive alternative to smoking with the aim to assist consumers switching from combustibles.

  • Accessibility

alt. is available in over 3,500 stores throughout New Zealand, not just at specialist vape shops. In most places where you buy cigarettes you can now choose to purchase alt. instead.

  • Ease of Use

alt. is incredibly simple to use. Once you have used all the liquid in the pod just replace the used pod with a new pod and begin using the device again. Plug in the Micro USB to charge.

  • Effectiveness

alt. uses a proprietary nicotine blend that provides similar satisfaction to conventional cigarettes should you decide to choose a nicotine variant. alt. is also available in zero nicotine.

 

Quality through research

 alt.Research is the research and development arm of our company. The division utilises a network of over 100 scientists in collaboration with Myriad Pharmaceuticals.
