The Rize By Lifted Industry - Elegantly designed, rugged and customizable, personal vaporization
Lifted Industry is a collective of designers, engineers, developers, vape enthusiasts, and problem solvers who have a passion for people and products that improve lives. Our goal at Lifted Industry is to take that passion and create the perfect tools to help you get the most out of your vaping experience.
Introducing the Rize personal vaporizer
The Rize offers the next generation of users; beautiful industrial design, ease-of-charging, customization, and solid performance in one flexible package.
Many current vaporizers are assembled from inexpensive parts and remain throwbacks from an era when vaping was new and we settled for OK. They remain cold, emotionless, and offer little in the way of aesthetics and usability that we expect from other more refined products in our daily lives.
We understand the current vaporizer landscape incorporates a shared "510" connection scheme which has become the industry standard. This means that the parts are highly reliable and interchangable with many devices. Our goal at Lifted Industry is to create the Rize within this open system to meet any of your vaping needs whether you are using oils, concentrates, e-liquids, or dry herb*.
* Dry herb attachment is available as a stretch goal.
We didn't just use a basic cylindrical body like the standard vape pen. We custom- designed the form and function to the exacting needs of the modern vaporizer user. The shape starts from a bold rectangular profile at the bottom. Then it gradually morphs into a ovular profile as it organically transitions into the mouthpiece where the soft texture meets the user's lips.
The Rize battery housing, mouthpiece and cap are custom made of lightweight and rugged, injection molded PC/ABS plastic along with CNC machined stainless steel components.
Much of the hard work is already done!
We are aiming to reach our goal of 89,000 USD which will cover the costs of tooling, production, and freight. This goal will also allow us to perfect the hardware and build quality (printed circuit board layout, battery testing, electrical and mechanical engineering, prototyping, environmental testing, etc.). We are committed to making this happen and we have already invested a significant amount of money and hours into design, planning, sourcing, etc.
We want Lifted Industry to be a force in the vaping community for years to come and our top priority is ensuring the Rize personal vaporizer is true to this commitment.
RISKS AND CHALLENGES
Does the Rize also do dry herb? - A dry herb attachment is in the planning stages and will be made available as a stretch goal.
How long does the battery take to charge? - This depends on what type of USB port you're using. A high-current wall charger (like the kind for the iPad) will take 1 hour, while charging from a computer will take 2-3. The supplied AC adapter will fully charge in about 2 hours.
What kind of atomizer connector comes on the Rize? - The Rize uses 510 threaded atomizer connector. We understand the current vaporizer landscape incorporates a shared "510" connection scheme and that is not likely to go away anytime soon. It is safe, rugged and parts can be shared.
What kits are available? - We will offer three kits. One 3-in-1 kit which has all three attachments for oils, waxes, and e-juice. One kit for just oils and waxes. Or one kit for just e-juice. We give you these options so you don't have to buy anything you don't need. See the perk questions below for more details.
Can I change the battery? - Yes, the battery is fully replaceable which extends the usability of the device. You won't have to throw away anything you don't need to, saving money and the environment. We recommend purchasing extra batteries from our website to guarantee best compatibility.

If you do not specify, we will automatically send you a Large size t-shirt.
What will happen when the stretch goals are met? - Once we meet the stretch goals for the dry herb attachment and the 4 ergo mouthpieces we will add new perks for you to contribute towards.
