A Few Quick Ways to Identify a Clone Pod System from a Real Pod System

Posted by David on

It's a sad fact that many brands out there produce counterfeit pod systems that look just like the real products that come from the brands you trust. Typically, clone pod systems look identical to the real products that you wish to purchase. This makes it extremely hard to tell the difference between a clone and the real thing. 


The good news is that there are some ways to spot a clone before wasting your money.
The Problem with Using A Clone Pod System


You may be thinking that a counterfeit pod system that looks just like the real thing isn't a big deal if it works. However, there are many reasons why you should never buy a counterfeit pod system.

For one thing, counterfeit pod systems are typically made with cheap materials. This is how the counterfeiter makes a profit off selling their fake products. It should go without saying that a pod system made with cheap materials won't perform as well or last if the real thing.

Even worse, a fake pod system may be dangerous. If the product isn't manufactured with quality in mind, it may combust due to faulty technology. 


How to Tell the Difference Between A Real Pod System and a Clone


Check the Authenticity Code

Because most vape hardware brands know there are counterfeit versions of their products, they provide authenticity codes on their packaging. These codes can be checked on the companies' websites to verify authenticity. Of course, counterfeit brands also use authenticity codes. However, these codes are fake. Entering a fake authenticity code into the real company's website will tell you right away that you have a clone.

Look Out for Prices That Seem Too Good To Be True

If the pod system that you want is being sold at a ridiculously low price, there's a good chance that it's not real.

Check Out the Vendor

It's important to only purchase vape products from reputable sources. Your local vape shop or a respected online distributor is unlikely to sell fake products. If you want to make sure that you're buying a pod system from a legitimate source, check the internet for reviews. Any good distributor will have positive reviews that can easily be found.

Pay Attention to The Quality of Your Vaping Experience

Lastly, the quality of your vape can tell you if you're using a legitimate pod system. A counterfeit pod system will be noticeably low in quality, resulting in a vaping experience that seems off.
Keep These Tips Handy

By following this guide, you can avoid wasting money on a clone pod system. Although there are many counterfeiters out there, it isn’t hard to find a legitimate vendor who can sell you the pod system that you're looking for.
