  • Publication number: 20190263199
    Abstract: A tire pressure detector with protection shell is applied to a wheel. The wheel has a rim having an air tap and a tire mounted around the rim, with an air pressure space formed between the tire and the rim. The tire pressure detector includes a shell and a detector body. The shell is movably disposed in the air pressure space, and the detector body is disposed in a housing space of the shell. The detector body is includes a detection module for detecting the air pressure in the air pressure space, generating a pressure signal, and wirelessly transmitting the pressure signal. Therefore, by improving the structural strength of the tire pressure detector with the shell, the tire pressure detector is conveniently installed without the need of other additional tools.

  • Publication number: 20190166902
    Abstract: An additive assembly for an e-vaping device includes an adsorbent material that includes adsorbed carbon dioxide. The additive assembly may be in fluid communication with a vaporizer assembly that forms a generated vapor. The adsorbent material may release the carbon dioxide into the generated vapor based on at least a portion of the generated vapor adsorbing on the adsorbent material. The additive assembly may include a flavor material including a flavorant. The adsorbent material may generate heat based on at least a portion of the generated vapor adsorbing on the adsorbent material, and the flavor material may release flavorant into the generated vapor based at least in part on the heat generated by the adsorbent material. One or more of the adsorbent material and the flavor material may be included in beads. Adsorbent material and flavor material may be included in multiple additive structures within the additive assembly.

  • Publication number: 20190160894
    Abstract: A warrant recording system includes a setting apparatus and a tire pressure detector. The setting apparatus is connected with the internet for acquiring a standard time. The setting apparatus writes the acquired standard time into the tire pressure detector, such that an initial timestamp is recorded in the tire pressure detector. Therefore, the setting apparatus automatically inputs a warrant period into the tire pressure detector, thus assuring the accurate record of the initial time point of the warrant period.

  • Publication number: 20190116866
    Abstract: Tobacco smoking mixtures capable of producing tobacco smoke are provided which reduce the cytotoxicity and/or mutagenicity of the tobacco smoke. The tobacco smoking mixtures include tobacco cut filler and glycerin in an amount effective to reduce cytotoxicity and/or mutagenicity of smoke produced by the tobacco smoking mixture. The tobacco smoking mixtures enable a further reduction in cytotoxicity and/or mutagenicity when glycerin is combined with palladium or salts of calcium and/or magnesium.

  • Publication number: 20190090538
    Abstract: The cartridge includes a housing, a reservoir containing a pre-vapor formulation, a vapor generator in communication with a central passage, the central passage including a first portion, a second portion and a third portion. The vapor generator is configured to communicate the pre-vapor formulation to the first portion of the central passage. A first air inlet is in communication with the second portion of the central air passage, where the second portion is between the vapor generator and the first air inlet. A dilution air inlet intersects the third portion of the central air passage, where the third portion is between the vapor generator and an outlet of the cartridge. The dilution air inlet defines a dilution air passage that does not pass through the vapor generator. The e-vaping device includes the cartridge.

  • Publication number: 20190090539
    Abstract: The non-combustible tobacco vaping insert includes a filter having a first diameter, and a non-combustible tobacco element with a first end contacting the filter. At least one first portion of the tobacco element has a second diameter that is smaller than the first diameter of the filter. The cartridge includes a heater configured to vaporize a pre-vapor formulation that is communicated to the heater by a wick. The insert is positioned in at least a portion of an air passage within cartridge, where the insert is configured to allow vapor that is generated by the heater to pass through the insert prior to being discharged from the cartridge.
