Snowplus Alien is another pod system from Snowplus that features its larger 2ml pod capacity taking use of FEELM technology.
Compared to the previous Snowplus Pro and Lite 1.5ml pod, the new Alien pod made with FEELM technology is 0.5ml larger than the old one.
Accordin to the Ihsu Yoon, the SnowPlus Alien commercial director, ” Ranfilm, the production company, approached me and said the client wanted to see the product in the universe environment in the concept film.
I came up with the story of Alien’s awakening and majestic launch on the “Vapor Planet” for the epic journey to the Earth.” Source
Snowplus Alien pod system specifications/ parameters
Pod capacity: 2ml
Nicotine strength: 3%,5%
Package content: 1 device, 1 type-c cable, 1 user manual
Origin of the name Alien
As far as VAPEHK is concerned, the new device is named Alien because its design style and technology used are much more different from previous Snowplus products.
Snowplus Alien takes use of rectangle body shape abandoning its sleek and rounder appearance of Snowplus Classic/ Pro editions. And it makes use of the FEELM ceramics heating core replacing its original TrueFeel cotton heating core.
Above are the thoughts of VAPEHK, while according to the official saying, the name Alien symbolizes a spirit of exploring the unknown of the vast universe.
Snowplus Alien pod system flavors
There are Mint, Orange Juice, Watermelon, Passion Fruit, and Peach flavors for this closed prefilled starter kit. The watermelon tastes best, while the orange juice flavor is just so so.
E-juice leakage shows up more or less in most pods, while the leakage volume is at an acceptable level. Overall, the flavor taste is at the middle level, or a little up the middle level. Better than most disposable vapes.
Since SnowPlus Alien isn’t widely launched on the global market yet, and the one we got is for internal review only, the later real edition of Snowplus Alien for the international market would be much better than we got.
Have you ever seen some vape shaped just like Green Arrow chewing gum? What you’re going to see today is the SnowPlus Go disposable vape with a shape just like this. This special shape makes the Snowplus Go not only easy to carry and stealthy, but also a convenient tool to getting social.
Since the size and shape of SnowPlus Go are almost like a piece of chewing gum, the parameters of this disposable are not as comprehensive as a pod vape. like Snowplus Pro. The e-juice capacity of one SnowPlus Go equals half of a commonly seen cartridge for pod vape.
However, the key selling point of this disposable lies in its tiny size.
SnowPlus Go advantages
Box mod vapers are obsessed with bragging about their devices’ good taste & high performance, and playing all kinds of vaping tricks; pod vapers love the convenience of pod vapes, and indulge themselves in them; while Snowplus Go vapers are ready to share the joy of vaping to others at an extremely low cost and in a sanitary way.
This 5 USD device is cheaper than cigarettes, easy to carry, and comes without heavy damage to the body and pollution to the air like cigarettes, while can be shared with others just like cigarette piece by piece. It takes in the good side of cigarettes while leaving the bad side alone. So Snowplus Go is a great tool to make vapers more social and popular.
Meanwhile, the tiny size of Snowplus Go makes it hard to be noticed and found by others. Not like conventional disposables like Puff Bar, Kangvape, or HQD, holding Snowplus Go in hand feels like holding a piece of smooth and thin paper, and this thickness deserved to be called a miracle in the history of vapes.
SnowPlus Go flavors
There are Vanilla Ice Cream, Tropical Breeze, Melon Berry Twist, Lychee Ice, Mango Ice flavors for Snowplus Go. After our test, Mango ice tastes best, while the tropical breeze produces a strange and bad smell. However, you’ll get used to this new flavor in 2 or 3 days. Overall, it’s not bad. Some disposable brands with good flavor names taste just like water, while all the flavors of SnowPlus Go are there and not lost, the taste of Snowplus Go is at an upper-middle level. And it’s not an easy thing for this tiny size.

“It’s very simple, online sales are not allowed, offline stores have a lot to do!” After the two ministries issued a notice to terminate the online sales of e-cigarettes in China, SnowPlus’ Guangdong Province representative Wu Dongping said relaxedly. In his opinion, the online sales ban only has changed the rules of the game in China’s e-cigarette industry and has little impact on the huge e-cigarette market. What it brings is not a cold winter, but a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Therefore, when 90% of the players in the industry lost their investment funds and withdrew the production line, the cutting-edge e-cigarette brand SnowPlus changed its play and quickly assembled funds to dive into the market, taking the opportunity to race and divide up the vacated market share. It is understood that after a year of cyber bans, the epidemic was hit again this year, but it did not affect the acceleration of SnowPlus’s development.
SnowPlus is a brand with multi-departmental operations, wide distribution of talents, and branches in many countries and regions around the world. Its electronic cigarette products have entered nearly 100,000 offline physical stores in nearly 200 cities across the country, and have hundreds of franchise stores in more than 100 cities. While peers in the industry are still watching the China Internet ban policy, SnowPlus has set its sights on overseas markets. As early as 2019, it disclosed its overseas plans. In less than a year, its products have entered North America, Southeast Asia, Europe, It is sold in more than 30 countries in the Middle East and North Africa. In addition, when other e-cigarette brands were struggling to seek financing opportunities, SnowPlus easily won SnowPlus and international investments including Zhen Fund, and the investment amount exceeded US$40 million.
Some industry professionals analyzed that before the e-cigarette online sales ban in November 2019, nearly 100 e-cigarette brands were active in China. However, in just one year, the China e-cigarette industry experienced a brutal reshuffle, and most players After the epidemic this year, the e-cigarette industry entered the second half of the showdown. There are only less than 10 top e-cigarette brands left, sharing the China e-cigarette market with billions of dollars. SnowPlus is one of the best and regarded as a competitor to only two or three other brands.
Under the high pressure line of “prohibition of selling to minors,” SnowPlus added “zero franchise fee, subsidy upgrade” to rush to offline franchise stores, and gave a full score to the e-cigarette market after the online sales ban. After the epidemic this year, it grew against the trend and became one of the leaders of the industry.
When the epidemic hits 2020, this is the hardest year for physical stores. However, SnowPlus, as the leading e-cigarette brand, has not stopped opening stores. It has adopted the form of franchise stores and continuously upgraded the subsidy policy for franchise stores to accelerate store openings and seize the offline market.
According to feedback from SnowPlus Guangdong agent Wu Dongping, after inspecting many e-cigarette brands, it was found that SnowPlus is the most powerful in store subsidies. Regardless of whether franchise stores are opened in shopping malls or on the roadside, they can enjoy subsidies of up to 92,000 yuan. Among them, franchised stores in first- and second-tier cities can enjoy a decoration subsidy of up to 80,000 yuan when they open, as well as display cabinets worth 12,000 and more than 4,000 yuan in material support. He calculated an account for us. On average, a franchise store only needs 30,000-50,000 investment, combined with a simple push model to quickly open the market, it can smoothly pay back within 3-5 months, and the gross profit rate exceeds 40%.
After the epidemic this year, SnowPlus Guangdong agent Wu Dongping set a miracle of expansion from 0 to 30 SnowPlus stores within two months. At present, he has exceeded 60 stores, and it took only four months. Among them, 90% of the stores have already made a profit. There are more than 1 billion smokers in the world, and China accounts for nearly one-third of the cigarette consumer market, and e-cigarettes, a healthier way, will be favored by more people, even if there are only 1 of 10 smokers smoking electronic cigarettes, it’s still a huge market of billions.
The Snowplus Pro pod system is looking to offer something that little bit different to the growing number of pod systems on the market.
They say this unassuming pod can be charged in 18 minutes. Of course, this is done by their ‘Super Charge Technology’. We will of course test that out later.
Almost forgot to mention.. the Snowplus Pro also has a party mode and we all love a good party right?
What Can We Expect from the Snowplus Pro Pod?
The Pro comes with a 450mAh battery under the hood as well as USB-C fast charging and a claim of an 18 Minute charge. The pod system is aimed at the ‘no fuss’ vaper with pre filled pods and no buttons to press, simply inhale and you’re vaping.
The classic pods are available in 15 flavours with various nic strengths of 3 or 5% (30mg / 50mg) so these cannot be legally sold out of the UK or TPD controlled countries. Also available are zero nicotine pods and smokeless which as the name suggest emits no vapour on the exhale.
OK.. That’s the short of it. Now let’s have a look in a bit more detail and see how the Snowplus Pro pod system performs!
This device was sent free of charge for the purposes of review. As always our views are our own.
In The Box
Snowplus Pro (Battery only – No pod!)
USB-C charge cable
450 mAh Battery
Type C Charge Port
IPX5 Dust & Water resistant coating
Zinc Alloy Build
18 Minute Charge Time
Smart Battery Indicator (Device vibrates when a charge is needed)
Automatic (Inhale to vape, no buttons to press)
Design and Build Quality
The Snowplus Pro body is made from Zinc Alloy and IPX5 dust and water resistant coating.
I’ve got to say this does give a very nice smooth feel in the hand. Nothing plasticy here either. It’s solid.
The weight.. Ooh yeah.. I like the weight. A pod system that you know is there and doesn’t leave you searching every pocket wondering where you put it.
On the body of the device there are a couple of indicator lights sit at the bottom front of the device, one in the shape of a snowflake and the other a ‘+’. Ahhhhhh. I see what they did there.
The + sign acts as the battery indicator and is activated by tapping the device twice, this will show you the status of the battery. At first, this seemed to be a bit hit and miss but the key here is to give it two firm taps then it works every time.
Now don’t get too excited here.. The term party should be taken extremely lightly. This function is activated by tapping 5 times in quick succession.
What do you get?
The ‘+’ sign flashes through a number of colors for 4-5 seconds and stops. I guess the vibration bit could get some ready to party but this only lasts for half a second or so.
Not entirely sure why that’s there. Maybe just to show off the haptic feedback tapping feature a little more I think.
The pods are made from Easterman Tritan Copolyster which is a BPA free material, if you want to know a little more about that you can check this page out.
The coil/atomiser on the inside is ‘Truefeel HoneyComb Ceramic’ which is said to help with a smooth mouthfeel and strong throat hit. Not sure what a smooth mouth feel is but I guess we will find out soon!
Their sales page also states they are leak free so we will be sure to check that out below.
Placing the pods into the battery also causes a small vibration of the battery to let you know the pod is securely in place. Not necessarily needed but a nice touch nonetheless.
Overall I’m pretty impressed with the Snowplus Pro device design and build quality as a whole. From the images on their sales page I was thinking it just looks like all the other pod systems out there.
And while that is true.. haha..
They have improved on the current designs. It feels superb in the hand, being the saddo that I am it was almost a pleasure. (Disclaimer: I’ve been in lockdown for 6 weeks).
The other thing is the weight which I have already touched on. I really like the fact it feels heavier than most pod systems that seem to drive toward the lightest they can possibly make them.
This in turn feels like you have a solid device that will last an age no matter how clumsy you are.
Branding is minimal√ – Lines are smooth √. The more I have this in hand the more I appreciate it. Even the packaging ticks all the boxes, straight out of the Apple school of design. Even the pod boxes have a smooth to touch finish.
OK, enough sounding off to what, in pictures, looks like a bog-standard design. We all know it’s not all about aesthetics. It’s all about the performance.
How Does the Snowplus Pro Vape Perform?
Very well! As should be expected from vape devices today.
On the inhale the device reacts instantly with no lag to your vape and the vape is smooth as they promised.
The only immediate issue I haven’t touched on above is that the kit doesn’t come with a pod included in the kit. Not single one. Not great in my book and not sure why companies still do this.
It’s not very clear on their sales page that there is no pod included so if you are buying this please remember to buy a pack of pods or you will be sorely disappointed.
There are 23 flavours across their Nicotine (Classic), Smoke Free and Nicotine free ranges.
They are colour coded as well so if you have a few flavours on the go you will be able to keep track of what’s what.
We received 5 to test from the Classic range. The pods contain 1.5ml of e-liquid.
There are no descriptions for the flavours themselves apart from a star rating (out of 5) for ‘Coolness’. ‘Sweetness’ and ‘Richness’.
They do however state the following:
SNOWPLUS Classic Pods are made using our original vapor formula based on vegetable glycerin and rich flavors developed in-house by our expert team. They produce a smooth, satisfying vapor, which our 4th generation double-seal technology radically minimizes leaks.
OK, onto the flavours.
Coolness – 4
Sweetness – 4
Richness – 2
I’ve got a thing for iced tea vapes ever since I tried a Lemon Iced Tea vape a few months back. If I hadn’t of tried that it wouldn’t have been something I would have personally bought.
I have to say, they are super refreshing and this is no different. The peach is there in just the right amounts, it is touching on floral but not too sweet as alluded to in the star rating.
The coolness is definitely a plus point for me. Paired with the Peach it really does a damn good job of replicating the Iced tea flavour.
Very refreshing, very moorish and an easy all day vape for me. I’d definitely buy this one again.
Orange Soda Pops
Coolness – 3
Sweetness – 3
Richness – 3
Now I’m guessing that most people have had a can or bottle of fizzy orange before. If so then this is pretty close. The orange is on the sweeter side, rather than the sharp fresh kind. The cooling effect, again, delivers a refreshing vape.
Not as strong as ‘cool’ as the Peach Ice Tea flavour but in this case a good thing for my tastes.
I like this one, not far off the taste of Fanta with a slight fizz coming through. Could I vape this all day? While I’m not normally a huge fan of the sweeter fruit vapes I’ve been vaping this regularly throughout the day no problem.
Cappuccino – Nicotine Free
Coolness – 4
Sweetness – 4
Richness – 2
This is part of the nicotine free range but does have 0.4mg/g of caffeine.
Despite being an avid coffee drinker I’ve only found one coffee vape that I really liked, that was Vaporfi Catch ya Latte. That’s not to say I could vape it all day, more of an occasional vape for me.
The Snowplus Cappuccino has slight chocolate notes to it with hint of creamy milk coming through on the exhale. The throat hit is none existent, unsurprisingly, due to the zero nic content.
As for the caffeine, I’m pretty heavy on that through the day so couldn’t notice any major difference! ?
This isn’t a flavour for me, just not to my tastes for a vape. So keep that in mind. If you personally like coffee vapes then it offers what it says on the tin so to speak.
Ice Cola – Smokeless
Coolness – 4
Sweetness – 3
Richness – 3
I like this one straight away, mainly because it it got cleared the previous cappuccino flavor out of my mouth quicktime! ha
This is straight from the old school cola bottles, if you are a fan of them you are in luck. This is pretty much a spot-on replication of the fizzy variety. Again a nice cooling comes into play that leaves the cola lingering in the mouth after exhale.
Only downside to this is that the vapour volume is pretty weak. OK.. After taking some images I realised this is a ‘smokeless’ flavour.. Like I said, lock down brain!
So with that in mind these are definitely ‘vapourless’ with a mouth to lung vape and with a deeper direct to lung you get a little vapour. One for the stealth vapers!
Coolness – 1
Sweetness – 2
Richness – 5
The Classic Tobacco gives that earthy tobacco flavour. There is a slight sweetness to it on the exhale that takes that rich edge off just a touch.
While my last cigarette was around 10 years, for me, it does a good job in rekindling that distant memory of what tobacco tasted like. I think smokers making the switch will take to it well as an alternative.
So, overall the flavours were very good. Whether I liked them or not (personal taste) they matched the descriptions on the box. The vape, despite the high nic strengths, were smooth while still giving you that all familiar throat tickle.
They claim zero leaks and that I can confirm. Even when I unplugged the stoppers that come in the pod cartridge holes there wasn’t so much as a drop of e-liquid anywhere at any time. Very well done.
Battery Life / Charging Time
The 450mAh battery is a good capacity for this type of device. It saw me through a day of vaping moderately which is great for a pod system. With these high nic strengths chain vaping is out of the question for me so less vape time needed.
As always, this will differ from vaper to vaper.
Charging was impressive as well. The ‘+’ sign light turned red, so I popped it on charge using a 2A charger. The ‘+’ sign light pulsed white as it was charging then on approx 20 minutes turned off. So if that indicates a full charge then it’s pretty good going.
Excellent build quality
Very good battery life
Kit doesn’t come with any pods (They need to be purchased separately at time of order)
On seeing the product online I thought this was just going to be a rebranded version of many pods we have seen before. As it turns out the Snowplus Pro pod system is a great choice in the ever-increasing world of pod vapes. It ticks a lot of boxes.
The build quality is one of the best for a pod I’ve had my hands on, charging time is excellent as is the battery life and there’s no sign of leaking anywhere. While it may not fit the needs for long-standing vapers, the simplicity is perfect for smokers making the switch.
The flavors I received didn’t all hit the spot but this is more down to personal preference. What they all did was deliver the flavor they promised on the box.
The main downside for me is that there is no pod included in the kit so please keep this in mind if buying.
Would I buy the Snowplus Pro again if lost or damaged? Yes I would.
Appearance: I received the SNOWPLUS Pro New Year gift kit and Lite kit this time. Recently, there are many readers in the group asking me about the experience of Pro and Lite. This time I got two devices sent by the brand for comparison and detailed experience.
Pro uses zinc alloy stamping, IPX5 waterproof coating, water&leakage-proof. Insert the pod and there is a vibration prompt. The overall appearance of the device is not much different from the first generation. The highlight is this RGB colorful breathing lamp with 1 million colors. Tap the device five times to turn on the Party Mode mode. The breathing lights change colorfully and blink for around. At this time, your draw is no longer companied with the monotonous white LED light indicator, the color is gradual, and at the same time, the color of the light of the body is continuously changing when being shaken. It lights you up and helps you to become the most outstanding guy in the audience. Tap twice on the Pro body to automatically display the left power. You can learn more details about the battery life in its user manual. Besides, there are some welfare eggs in this New Year’s gift box. The attached desk calendar contains twelve coupons, five free pod/cartridge coupons and seven coupons for one hundred yuan off purchasing two hundred yuan products. Pro: 9/10
Lite’s device is much simpler, subject to removing the cost of cool interactive functions while retaining the most basic functions, its price is much lower. The appearance of Lite’s bottom is relatively simple. It doesn’t have the rounded bottom design of the first generation Classic and Pro, and its weight is lighter. Lite: 6.5 / 10
Taste and throat hit: The Pro New Year gift kit received this time comes with two green beans smoothies and ice mint flavor, and the Lite starter kit comes with an ice mint. The pods take use of the SNOWPLUS independently developed TrueFeel ceramic core, and it comes with a strong magnetic connection. While the biggest problem of the Classic edition is poor flavor consistency (the pod will be tasteless when it’s vaped in the second half part, giving people a feeling of incomprehension), this new generation of products has fixed the consistency shortcoming, and the mouthfeel of continuous vaping and sweetness is very good, which is commendable. According to official data, the amount of vapor produced increased by 76% compared to the previous generation. The vapor I exhaled is indeed much larger.
Ice Mint: The nicotine content is 50mg/ml, which provides a strong sense of satisfaction. Compared with the first generation, the unpleasant mouthwash taste was reduced, and I slowly turned to pursue the original taste of mint. I tasted the herbal taste of mint in the back mouth carefully, but the front of the first few mouthfuls are still with a slight of toothpaste smell, this discomfort disappeared after a few mouthfuls, hope it could be improved. This taste of cold is mainly concentrated in the mouth, not in the throat in common, and the coolness is set moderately. The mint flavor is more suitable for vapers who are tired of sweet flavors. If it is vaped alone, it feels a little empty inevitably. The nicotine salt content is high, I feel it a bit strong, suitable for rapid addiction reliving. 7/10
Mung bean smoothie: nicotine content is 30mg / ml, weak throat hit. The perfect taste of mung bean popsicles reminds me of childhood Tianjin Kangle’s mung bean popsicles. The sweetness has been significantly improved compared to the first generation. The mung bean flavor is rich and mellow. There is also a very comfortable dessert taste. 8.5 / 10
Vape juice leakage: There is no leakage before the cartridge is unpacked, and the base shows different colors according to different tastes. Dry package. 10/10
Condensate: It is very important to take the correct vaping posture. Do not lean or lie upside down when vaping. No condensate was encountered by me. 10/10
Spit back: No vape juice spit back at all. 10/10
Dry hits: No dry hit with normal frequency continuous draw. 10/10
Battery life: Pro device battery capacity is 450 mAh, using Type-C charging interface, the official says 5V2A charger can fully charge the device in 18 minutes, compared with the first generation Classic product, its charging efficiency is significantly improved. Interestingly, the power reminder of this breathing lamp is the same as the operation mode of Juul. Tap the device twice to automatically display the power. The green color shows 30% to 100% power left, the yellow is 10 to 30, and the red is 10 or less. And the battery is less than 10% when it vibrates, suggesting that it is time to charge. It has a certain degree of playability, which reflects that its positioning is more high-end. 8.5 / 10
When the Lite device battery capacity is 400 mAh, use Micro-USB charging interface, the charging time is 50-100 minutes. Compared with Pro, this data is not good enough, but the two are different in positioning and price, and they can reflect the difference according to different consumer needs. As a consumer, I would strongly recommend choosing Pro, why not spend a little more on high-end items as you use it every day.
Overall, the experience that Pro gives me is stronger than Lite, and the playability is greatly enhanced. It has many highlights in the device. In the shape and generation, there are more fashion elements tucked into it without major changes. The indicator light for twice tap to show the power, and for five-time tap to turn on the Party Mode, and shake to show the colorful marquee. It reminds me of the fun of Juul’s experience. With the offline activities of SNOWPLUS, I feel SNOWPLUS is a fashion brand and its products are for cool customers. Lite is a lot simpler, and with its price of 79.9 yuan per pod, it aims to target the first-time-vaping customers, so that consumers can access the products at a lower threshold, to attract new loyal users. The whole strategy looks quite smart. Two different schemes target different target groups to meet their respective needs. The taste of the two kits of products reviewed has also improved a lot compared to the first Classic generation, and the vaping experience is better than expected. If you insist on my recommendation, I think it would be a better choice to go directly to Pro if you have some bucks in hand. Pro is better in hand-feel and fun. 9/10
In recent years, the e-cigarette industry has developed rapidly. China has become the world’s largest e-cigarette producer. More than 90% of the world’s e-cigarette products and components come from China. SNOWPLUS is an e-cigarette brand that went on market last year. After a year of development, it has not only achieved great success in China, but has also been popular abroad, and successfully ranked among the top brands in the industry.
Although the e-cigarette industry has been enthusiastically sought after by capital and has good development prospects, the problem of “leakage” has been hindering the development of the industry. It was learned from SNOWPLUS that following the launch of an upgraded version of the second-generation cartridge in October last year, they will soon launch a third-generation cartridge with higher performance and quality in the second quarter of this year, which will solve the industry problem of “pod leakage”.
The breakthrough of SNOWPLUS’ third-generation pods not only indicates that SNOWPLUS‘ technical level has reached a new height, the brand has occupied a favorable position in market competition, but also marks the e-cigarette industry’s entry into an era of “leakage-free” and the development of the industry. It has a landmark significance.
The SnowPlus brand was launched in April 2019. SnowPlus is dedicated to providing safe alternatives to traditional cigarettes by bringing change to current health challenges around the globe and empowering adult smokers to lead more healthy lifestyles. SnowPlus products have passed a number of third-party safety certifications and comply with the highest medical safety standards of the FDA and the European Union.
1 CAPPUCCINO POD
1 ICE MATCHA LATTE POD
1 USB CABLE
The SNOWPLUS coffee starter kit comes with 2 flavored pods which are nicotine free, the device is well built with a 400mAh battery capacity and it is able to pull 300 on full charge. The other thing which is very appealing to me is the magnetic design which makes the device very easy to put together and start using or switching between pods.
This unit is also compatible with both nicotine and non nicotine pods which should make everyone happy.
I enjoyed both flavors that came with the SNOWPLUS coffee starter kit, being a big coffee drinker I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this to test it out.
The video above shows you exactly how the unit and pods work, no need to look which side you are putting the pod in it doesn’t really matter and the best thing is it is magnetic, so is really easy to change to different flavored pods without even looking.
When it comes to using the unit its as easy as putting the pod in and starting to vape, no need to switch anything on or any of that non sense ? also we do get a nice illuminating light when you are using the SnowPlus
When it comes to the flavors that are included with the unit, they have a nice scent which even after sometime when I got back to the room I could still smell the aroma from before, I would choose my scents wisely.
We are also looking at the optional pods which we received, and when it comes to flavor, it does deliver to that promise, we had the chance to test out the Golden Energy which is quite pleasant aroma to it.
Inside we have a total of 3 pods which are nicely packed, and are contained within the container and are nicotine-free.
In June 2019, SNOWPLUS announced to gain the “A-round” investment of USD 40 million from multiple frontier venture capital and individual investors, and at the meantime, the sales volume of the electronic atomizing products of SNOWPLUS keeps fast growth speed depending on the high-quality product experience and breakthrough marketing mode. At present, SNOWPLUS has already entered into the first tier of E-cigarette sales in China, and the top 3 in the world.
March 12, 2020 – Beijing – Today SNOWPLUS has announced global investment results from 2019 through February 2020 amounting to approximately $125 million USD. The funding has come from investors in Asia, North America, Europe and the Middle East.

SNOWPLUS has a fully developed international strategy that involves responsibly expanding into global markets by working with local industry players.
The company will strengthen its presence in the domestic market as it continues to actively expand to targeted international markets with more optimized environments for SNOWPLUS products, bolstering its presence on the international stage.
“This latest round of investment puts us one step closer to realizing our vision of providing better alternatives that satisfy adult smokers globally,” said Derek Li, Co-founder of SNOWPLUS. “Moving forward, we will continue to innovate, applying the latest and most cutting-edge technologies to our products to provide global adult users the optimal vaporizer experience. We will also remain steadfast in forging industry alliances and joint ventures with local companies.”
Progress has already been made in deployment to these global markets, with the building of teams in the UK, Canada and the Middle East. A UK warehouse has already been set up to ensure a steady supply of product in the country, and SNOWPLUS products can be purchased at 50 Esso convenience store locations in Canada.
Expansion efforts are also underway in Southeast Asia, with SNOWPLUS developing nicotine-free products for the Malaysian market. Meanwhile, in the Indonesian market, SNOWPLUS is currently applying for official licensing of offline stores and plans to work with local e-liquid industry players to develop flavors suited to local tastes.
Moving forward, SNOWPLUS plans to leverage investment to further expand worldwide, while maintaining a solid foothold in its home market of China. With funding from respected industry players in the capital market, SNOWPLUS is not only continuing its proven record of developing top-of-the-line vaping products and technologies, but also paving the way for a smooth entrance into key global markets that have a demonstrated demand for vape products.
