How to identify a FAKE vape in general!

Disposable vapes are now super popular, and with it comes an increased risk of counterfeit products. Fake vapes can be dangerous to use and will always end up giving you a lesser puff count as counterfeiters cheap out on the battery to save cost. Understandably, you're losing at the end of the day by getting a lower puff count and a poor vaping experience overall.

If you're looking to purchase a disposable vape, it's important to know how to identify if it's original or fake. Most top vape brands have now come up with a QR code technique to help you easily identify a fake one, for example this blog on our site which shows you how to identify a fake Elf Bar. But not all vapes have QR codes yet so here's a quick guide on how to identify a fake vape in general. 

Estimate the number of Puffs
Whilst disposables do not have a screen that can show a puff counter, you can average out of daily puff count and see how long the vape lasts. If the number of days x average puffs per day adds up to the number of puffs the vape claims to offer - it's genuine. If the number is way off, then its surely fake!

Check the price
While it's possible to find a good deal on a disposable vape, if the price seems too good to be true, it probably is because its a fake. Counterfeit products are often sold at a lower price than authentic products, and if you're purchasing a disposable vape for significantly less than its retail price, there's a good chance it's a counterfeit. Keep in mind that authentic disposable vapes are made with high-quality materials and are designed to last, so they may be more expensive than their counterfeit counterparts.

Check the packaging
One of the easiest ways to spot a counterfeit disposable vape is by examining the packaging. Authentic disposable vapes will come in high-quality packaging that is designed to protect the product during shipping and storage. Look for packaging that has crisp printing and high-quality graphics. Also, check for spelling errors or grammatical mistakes, as these are often a sign of a counterfeit product.

Look for a security code
Many manufacturers of disposable vapes include a security code on their packaging that can be used to verify the product's authenticity. Check for a unique code on the packaging or on the vape itself, and then verify that code on the manufacturer's website. If the code isn't recognized or the website can't verify it, there's a good chance the product is a counterfeit.

Check the build quality
Another way to spot a counterfeit disposable vape is to examine the build quality of the device itself. Authentic disposable vapes are built with high-quality materials and are designed to perform reliably. Counterfeit products, on the other hand, may be built with cheaper materials and may not perform as well as their authentic counterparts. Check the device for any signs of poor build quality, such as loose parts or flimsy construction.

To conclude, identifying an original disposable vape from a counterfeit one can be challenging, but it's important to take the time to do so. By following the tips above, you can help ensure that you're purchasing a high-quality, safe, and effective product. Always remember to buy from reputable sources, and if you're in doubt, don't hesitate to reach out to the manufacturer for verification.
