When you’re looking to purchase an electronic cigarette or any related electronic cigarette accessory, if you’re paying for an authentic device, you should only receive an authentic item. The rising popularity of electronic cigarettes has led to factories in China creating replicas, better known as clones, of popular products on the market.
Is there anything wrong with a clone? Not entirely, sometimes clones are actually better than the authentic version. On the other hand, sometimes clones are made very poorly and are prone to defects.
So now that you have purchased your ecig/clearomizer/tank/mod/etc, you have the right to know if it is authentic. Most of the larger electronic cigarette companies are now placing a scratch off authenticity code on all of their products. For example, on the Aspire Atlantis 2, there is a scratch off code on the back. Once you scratch off the code, you can head to Aspire’s website, enter your code, and the site will inform you if your device is authentic. If it doesn’t say it authentic, make sure to try entering it a few times, just incase you made a mistake on the initial entry.

So what do you do if you purchased an electronic cigarette or accessory that is not authentic? The first step is to contact the company you purchased it from and inform them. Sometimes companies will unknowingly purchase clones, even when they are sold to them as “authentic”. If the store sold you the item as authentic and it was not authentic, the company should issue a refund for your device, but that will be different for each store that you encounter.
