SMOK Statement on Counterfeit Product
Dear SMOK Fans and Customers:
Recently, we have received multiple counterfeit reports from our customers and retailers. Those reports involved with product AL85，OSUB 40W，Vape Pen 22 and Stick V8 which are our main product. We make this statement to strongly condemn such action and showing our determination of defending our brand and protecting our customer from counterfeiting.
The first concern to us is, due to those products’ popularity, we do concern about counterfeits’ technical safety and stability. With using inferior raw material, counterfeits could have potential possibility of explosion and that could result in safety incident. Therefore, we strongly recommend our customer to stop using those products immediately and report counterfeiting . Other major concern to us is, SMOK stands on the value of providing best and safety product to our customers, giving them best experience with SMOK, but with raising number of counterfeits we can not deliver that commitment to our costumer. Counterfeit products not only damage our commitment to our customer but also bring potential safety risk to our customers.
Technical Information of Counterfeit Product:
AL85(counterfeit), counterfeit AL85 is using very cheep and inferior raw material, with little experience and technology in manufacturing those products is defective and less handle than genuine. Especially for the control unit circuitry and main component, inferior raw material and defective manufacturing may increase the risk of electrical short circuit and cause potential explosion.
Same for counterfeit stick v8. Counterfeit stick v8 has no power safety protection. When customer using low-resistance core, it is very easy to trigger short circuit and increase the risk of explosion.
