I have been very vocal in my support for clones, and I don’t change my stance at all. As long as these original mods are overpriced and hard to find, I will continue to support clones and replicas.
I don’t really think it has an effect when clone manufacturers copy mods down to their logo because I believe people buy a mod based mostly on design and not brand name.
However, I have been getting into this point in vaping where I WANT an authentic mod, at least 1 in my collection! I want to know how it is to have a mod with its own serial number and authentication papers. I also plan on going to vape meets, and I personally don’t think it would be a good idea to bring a clone to such important events for the culture.
I think a good collection would be quality over quantity. I know, its going to take me a longer time to get a mod I want, but I think the satisfaction and gratification would be more intense once I receive my authentic mod in the mail!
Now, aside from price, I know that timing is crucial too. A lot of these units sell quick, so being quick to buy is important as well.
I came across this site that has authentic mods. I like them because they have a lot to choose from, and some of them are in stock. Here are a few beauties that caught my eye, and yes they are still available (as of July 27, 2014)!
If you ask me, I got the Chi-You, which is why I posted it on the top of my post. Look at how beautiful the detail and design is on that mod! If I had the money though, I would have gotten everything I posted on here honestly.
Remember, if you see something you like that is out of stock, chances are it will never be reproduced again. So get one while you still can.
Have you been thinking of upgrading your unit lately? Are you starting to grow tired of it’s look and feel? Have videos of variable voltage mods been getting more of your interest and attention lately?
If so, it might be time to get an upgrade. Read this post about what to do before upgrading to a mod if you haven’t. If you don’t have the budget for it, don’t fret. Here is a list of the top 3 best rated variable voltage mods on the market that won’t break bank!
Everyone I have came across who owns an MVP swears by it, and why shouldn’t they? It has a 2600 mah battery, that’s a lot battery life. Your usual E-Go battery has 900-1,300 mah. Imagine the time you have in using the MVP without having to charge. It also has tons of skin wraps so you can “pimp” your mod to pretty much however you want.
A popular choice among many vapers, here’s proof that a variable voltage mod that’s under $50 can vape and perform just as good as its high-end counterparts. Sure it looks like a Tiki god with a round mouth, but the performance is there folks! People who love to customize their units will be glad that tons of skin wraps for this is mod are available.
And right under the 50 dollar mark comes the SID. This was dubbed the “Vamo Killer” since it also targeted the budget-conscious. Beautfiul stock design that does not need customization. LED display is clear, with a user-friendly interface. Has an ohms checker for people who do their own builds.
Who said mods had to be expensive? Do your research, there are plenty of mods that offer quality vape at good prices. Here are some places that are worth checking out for good valued mods:
My Freedom Smokers – Everything mods, digital and mechanical, along with accessories and parts.
Madvapes – One of the longest running vape online shops, with a wide variety of vaping products at good prices.
Fairy Gate – One of the best priced site for clones I have come across, they give Fastech a run for their money.
