Cloned Mods – The Hot Topic

hot topicIt seems as if everyone’s talking about clones these days. Whether it’s because they despise them or because they can’t wait to get their hands on one, it’s certainly a hot topic within the community.

Clones are simply a copied version of another item. It was designed to look the same and perform the same, and the majority of these clones are being produced by China manufacturers. It all begins in the hands of the creator… they original version of an item’s cost is marked high, and often sold in limited quantities. By doing this, many people believe it’s so that the original creators can make big bank and limit the amount of items being sold so other consumers will want it that much more.

Fabrication WorkIn reality, the original creator is being hammered by the cost of production, which limits the amount of items they’re able to afford. Since it costs so much to put the items in production, the retail price of each item will have to be marked up enough to make it even worth the time taken. Furthermore, quality is in high demand from consumers and these original creators do not want to take the chance of producing a sub-par product with a high chance of failure. This is why they source the best materials to use since they are taking quite the chance. By chance I mean, they have no clue if this investment in money and time will pay off. They don’t know if the consumer will love or hate the product. How do you feel about taking a chance with say $5,000, not being sure if you’ll get that money back or not? – Right, and this is why original, quality products have such a high retail price.

With a cloned product, which is typically produced by Chinese manufacturers, the cost is very low. This is done by the manufacturers themselves, so the only cost is the materials and cheaply hired workers. Instead of sourcing a machinist to make the product like most US companies do, these China manufacturers create the cloned product in house. In addition, much like many China made products, materials used aren’t exactly the best. In fact, they use the cheapest of materials so that it costs them very little to produce.

mod clonesThere has always been 3 problems that exist with a copied version of a device (mods are of course what we’re talking about); quality and materials used, retail pricing and the pure fact that the design was stolen. We already went over the slacking quality and materials used with clones, but the pricing we haven’t fully covered. The super low pricing of clones are great for many people. It gives those people who can’t afford to spend $200 or don’t see the sense in it, a way to own a popular or costly device. However, the bad thing is, is that the low pricing depreciates the value of the original device. Where an original device may have been looked at as a great price because not everyone owned one, when they’re cloned and easily available at such a low price, it gives consumers an idea that the cost of the original was too high.

dirty dancingAnd, then there’s the stolen design to the product. In the e-cigarette industry, we all know this too well… If you make a device and it becomes even remotely popular, it will be cloned immediately. In this industry, people look past it and don’t think too much of it, but in reality it’s no different than someone copying a well written article or a popular painting and selling it for a quarter of the original price. It’s down right dirty, yet for those of us who can’t afford an original, the high prices from those creators are almost forcing us to settle for less.

So, can you look past the high price and play the waiting game for an original, or are you one of the ones who were forced to settle for less? – This topic has been on-going for quite some time, and I feel that there will never be a stop to it. China plays a huge role in the products we use everyday, and in this e-cigarette industry, there is no difference. You’re either one for it or against it.

    My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a variety of websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!|
