Are You Sure Your Vaporizer Isn’t a Clone?

Dont buy fake or counterfeit electronic cigarettes

E-Cigarette regulations are at hand, but you can still fall prey to unscrupulous retailers, or those who unknowingly sell you a look-alike vaporizer. Fake ecigs are known as “clones” or “knockoffs“. Clones have been described as a “third-party rendition of the original developer’s design”. They are sold at a cheaper price but are supposed to be made with the same parts as the real deal. Knockoffs look like the original on the outside, but inside they’re made with cheap materials that can make them dangerous to use. 

There’s still a debate as to whether it’s smart to buy cloned mechanical mods and rebuildable atomizers, but in any case, you the consumer should know what you’re getting. 

How Can You Be Sure You’re Buying a Genuine (and Safe) ECigarette Product?

Resellers can easily buy ecig clones and knockoffs of popular brands that are made in Asia; brands that include Innokin, Aspire, Eleaf, Kanger and Joyetech. 

I choose to steer clear of vape shops and small on-line retailers when it comes to buying vape mods and atomizers unless the owner can prove they are an “official reseller” of the imported brand I wish to purchase.   

What’s more, returning any of those models from small retailers can be difficult as they are not terribly keen on sending merchandise back to China.

Also, if something isn’t working right with your product, you’ll get your money back with their 30-day guarantee.

South Beach Smoke only recently became a retailer of top selling imports, expanding their own beginner line of vapor products. Prices on both SBS and DirectVapor are very competitive; another good reason to try these recommended brands.
