Juul, the maker of e-cigarettes, makes an audacious case against Trump’s tariffs on Chinese goods

Tariffs on Chinese goods are bad for your finances, many argue, given the amount of consumer good and parts that are imported from China. But Juul, the controversial e-cigarette maker, has gone one step further than that. It argues they could be bad for your health, too.

A 25% tariff on lithium batteries, which are used in Juul’s e-cigarette portable charging case, will result in a “direct price increase, which is likely to make the product less affordable to the average consumer,” the e-cigarette maker recently told the U.S. Trade Representative’s office.

Juul isn’t the only company worried about costs.
