FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Feb. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA.
Feb. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — VPR Brands, LP (OTCQB: VPRB) a leading-edge innovation and technology products company has recently acquired the Dissim Lighter Brand, a premium lighter with patent-pending functionality and design. VPR Brands acquired the new lighter company assets including all Intellectual property, Trademark and Utility Patent Pending in exchange for an ongoing 5% royalty to the inventor and founders of Dissim.
The lighter, the Dissim, is the world’s first soft flame lighter designed for both upright and inverted use, meaning that it can be ignited and will remain lit at any angle. While that might sound interesting, the question quickly became would people fund the development of such a thing? The answer was yes! Out of more than 350,000 Kickstarter campaigns ever created, it ranks in the top 0.2% of campaigns for the most backers, to the tune of 7,067 backers who pledged $333,596, far surpassing the company’s listed goal of $3,200 It was also selected as one of Kickstarter’s “Projects We Love.”
The concept for the lighter came about in October 2018, and in the subsequent market research and design process, the company came up with a fairly unique design, highlighted by a then patent-pending circular grip. After reaching its goals and going into production, the Dissim lighter began shipping to backers in September 2020 and became available via the company’s online store and other retailers not long after.
Traditional lighters were designed primarily for lighting cigars and cigarettes, making them ill-suited for other uses like lighting candles or pipes. The world’s first lighter designed for both upright and inverted use, this model from Dissim is good for a wide variety of applications. It has a signature ergonomic circle grip that provides control in either orientation while greatly reducing the risk of inadvertent burns. The refillable, adjustable lighter runs on butane (with a window for checking how much is left), has an angled flame port, and is backed by a lifetime warranty.
