Innokin Wins Major International Vaping Awards

Innokin wins major international vaping awards at the recent UK Vaper Expo

Share on:
The second quarter of the year typically marks the start of the international vape exhibition circuit, providing manufacturers with the opportunity to showcase the future of next-generation nicotine across major global markets. Innokin has started with aplomb as it wins four major international vaping awards at the recent Vapouround Awards.

Among thousands of new products released each year, only a select few are recognised by industry experts with coveted international awards.

Industry veterans Innokin have enjoyed a bumper start to the 2022 exhibition season, picking up four awards across two events.

The Vapouround Awards is the UK’s largest vape award ceremony and is a tastemaker for the industry.

The gala-style event, which runs alongside The UK Vaper Expo, is attended by more than 400 key decision makers in the vaping and FMCG sectors each year. 

Innokin had their most successful evening at The Vapouround Awards since it started more than seven years ago, coming away with three top honours.

Innokin’s Z-Force tank, with innovative DuoPrime coil technology, claimed third place in the “Best DTL Tank” category.

Innokin’s Zenith II tank, which allows consumers to explore the full range of industry-leading Z-coils, took second place in the “Best MTL Tank” category.

Innokin’s biggest recognition was first place in the “Best Sustainable Initiative” category, for their new disposable product Aquios Bar, made in collaboration with Aquios Labs.

Aquios Bar is an innovative disposable vaping device that combines Aquios Labs’ water-based vaping technology with sustainable product design. Unlike other disposable vaping devices, Aquios Bar can be disassembled after use, allowing for easy recycling of most components.

Just one week later, Innokin’s new Klypse device won “Best Pod” at Vapexpo Spain. The pod system category, which caters to new vapers, is highly contested but the Innokin Klypse stood out for its exceptional vaping performance and build quality.

After a promising start to the exhibition and awards season, Innokin are set to continue their investment in water-based vaping technology, with partner Aquios Labs.

Commenting on the awards haul, George Xia, Innokin co-founder said: “It is a privilege to be recognised by fellow industry veterans, especially in our pursuit of water-based vaping technology and environmentally conscious products like Aquios Bar. We have been greatly encouraged by the consumer reaction to our new releases and look forward to gathering more feedback in the remainder of the exhibition season.”
