RJ Reynolds  plans to test market Vuse Solo to limited markets in the US.  According to an e-cigarette distributor, the disposable e-cig does not require assembly or initial charging and is single use e-cigarette unlike brands on the market currently.

Reynolds also may release Viceroy Flex dissoluble tobacco and Viceroy pouches.
