Fake Electronic Cigarettes & How To Spot Them
Nobody knows how many knock off e-cigarettes are on the market right now. Sadly, we can inform you that the market is flooded with them. Fake Electronic cigarettes, mods, disposables, tanks, and other items are cloned nearly everywhere.
Retail stores, internet auction sites and discount sites all sell them. Which is why you should always be cautious of where you are buying from! Shenzhen, China, is home to several dozen world-class e-cigarette producers. Shenzhen has a total of 600 e-cigarette factories. This means hundreds of e-cig firms are undoubtedly producing fraudulent, counterfeit e-cigs. The quantity of fakes on the market could be much more than anyone expects.
Let’s have a look at some math. A few dozen world-class producers are responsible for some of the best vapour products. That leaves roughly 550 producers out of the 600 unaccounted for. So, what exactly are they up to?
They’re most likely creating fake e-cigarettes. It’s quick money. All a counterfeiter has to do is create a product that resembles the genuine one and profit off the reputation and marketing of another company. When you consider how many factories are merely replicating name brand products, you can’t help but conclude that fakes are all over the market.
What Are Fake E-cigs?
Fake e-cigarettes are forged goods. They are designed to resemble the genuine name-brand goods. They even imitate the packaging and manuals down to the last detail, but that’s usually where the similarities end. While clone artists are skilled at making fake vapour items appear authentic, they are less skilled at quality control. The quality of the materials used by counterfeit makers is frequently ignored. To put it another way, fraudulent e-cigarettes are low-cost, low-quality knockoffs that don’t vape very effectively.
For example. Let’s start with the batteries. Lithium metal of the highest quality is used to make a high-quality lithium-ion battery. Impurities in lower-purity lithium metal obstruct the smooth transfer of charged particles. These impurities result in a poor battery that will not last long and perform poorly. Internal batteries in fake e-cigarettes are usually made of a lower-grade lithium.
Cloned and counterfeit vapour items are made from the cheapest materials available. They rely on low-cost chips and processors. The use of cheap materials and low-quality chip technology is obviously dangerous regarding safety.
How to Identify a Fake Electronic Cigarette
How can you determine if an electronic cigarette is a fake? The pricing is your first indicator. If the price appears to be too good to be true, it most likely is. When you buy an electronic cigarette/disposable from a company like Nasty Juice, or other leading brands, you don’t have to worry about being scammed. As a lot of the products have a scannable QR code which can confirm the authenticity of the product.
Of course, you should always verify the authentication code. When you check the authenticity code, you normally remove the cellophane seal, open the merchandise, and scratch the code to disclose it. To put it another way, you have to buy the product first before you can check its authenticity.
