Yeah, I don't trust any brick and mortars...they take gear out of boxes, in which case anything could happen...the "switcheroo", the "returned mod", the "dropped" display model, etc....

Smok makes good stuff - that's why they are still here, while many are gone, never to return. We really are at a turning point in vape manufacturing history - and a vape shop that doesn't carry Smok products is just cutting their own throat.

Voopoo is another company that has always had pretty good quality - My OG Drag, "TOO", and the cassette player-looking mod all still work great as well.....

Funny, though: Remember when the GENE chip was considered "cutting edge"? lol, still solid, though.
