If you are new to vaping (or even if you’re not), you are probably suspicious of ordering any vaporizer products that come from overseas. Many people are wary of purchasing Chinese vaporizers because of concerns over quality, functionality, and authenticity. While some of these fears may be warranted, several legitimate vape manufacturers come from China today, including the SMOK brand. Here’s what you need to know:
Where SMOK Products Are Made
Most SMOK products come from the Nanshan District in Shenzhen, China. Shenzhen has become a worldwide hotspot for the design and creation of vapor products. Their technology and investments have attracted some of today’s biggest vapor brands to the region. SMOK joins a number of other industry leaders in having their products manufactured there. These products such as the SMOK Alien Kit, Devilkin Kit, and TFV8 Cloud Beast tank, have subsequently become favorites for vape fans around the world.
Verifying Your Products
Naturally, fraudsters have set out to replicate SMOK’s technology and pass it off as their own. Even some reputable vapor shops have been caught off-guard by counterfeit products appearing on their shelves from disreputable wholesalers. This is why SMOK and other brands have rolled out a few verification steps for consumers to protect themselves from counterfeit goods, including authenticity codes and stickers that must be verified online before you use your device. This ensures that the piece came from the manufacturer and was not modified in any way.
Why You Should Always Verify Your Products
With copies and counterfeits, it is impossible to know if the device will work as expected. Additionally, essential safety features may have been cut out of the equipment to save money. This is why you should always purchase your products from a trusted source and verify their authenticity before you begin vaping. SMOK has made this process very easy by adding external indicators to their boxes.
While SMOK is made in China, we want vapers to feel confident in their products. SMOK is one of the most popular vapor brands available today thanks to their advanced vaping technology and the innovative SMOK coils. You do not want to miss out on these products just because they come from China. Instead, you should arm yourself with the knowledge to spot a fake so you can enjoy the best of the best without worry!
