Origin Vape / Last Updated February 2019
Short product life-cycles are currently an industry-wide concern.
Many vapers are disgruntled over spending their hard earned money on mods or tanks that become obsolete due to the release of manufacturer revisions, several weeks after original launch.
Whatever happened to getting the maximum utility out of a product before buying another one?
When comparing the vaping industry to other consumer related products, Aaron agrees there is a necessity for longer life spans than what currently exists as an industry norm.
Despite this, Aaron points out that no two industries are the same. Due to a strong consumer demand for revisions, in the vaping industry there “cannot [be] a year or longer [before] releasing the new version…”
These words ring true for all regulated devices, as circuit boards improve in function and battery technology advances.
The company maintains a very positive perspective with regard to the future of vaping technology. Aaron notes, “future trends will be focused on health, convenience, good taste and price.”
Regardless whether it is high wattage devices, low sub-ohm tanks, or new wicking materials, such trends all appear out of what vapers are requesting.
The industry moves quickly out of necessity to keep up with consumer demand, he explains. As such, all innovation is the product of discovery and revision.

With regard to a growing domestic demand for vaping products, Youde recognizes that there are challenges ahead…
The Chinese market may one day overtake the U.S. as the biggest market for vaping. With a growing population and more than 300 million smokers as of 2014, the Chinese electronic cigarette market has great potential.
According to Public Health England, electronic cigarettes are around 95% less harmful than tobacco. In light of this new support for the industry, smokers in China who switch to vaping have the opportunity to live longer and healthier lives, if manufacturers dedicate resources to the domestic market.
To capitalize on the domestic growth, Aaron says:
“Most companies will increase…R&D for a new business opportunity based on their company’s strength…Youde will be one of them. Since we can do well in different industries, we also will be one of the leaders in the domestic market.”
The company looks forward to diversifying its product base and serving the needs of their local vapers.
Youde has come a long way from the IGO-W, and grown tremendously over the last few years. They’ve outgrown their previous industrial space and have built a new operating complex the size of a small city. As a testament to their success and growth within the industry, the company has made a move into their 70-acre, mammoth corporate park in late summer, 2015.
Surely, we can expect Youde to keep shining with great quality hardware into the future.
