Our approach has given us a range of products that we believe are among the best available for their vapour quality. All this while, we have continued to offer Intellicig, but we have now reached the stage where we know the vapour quality achieved by our Vype products exceeds that of the Intellicig equivalents, and it is the right time to begin withdrawing Intellicig from sale."
