Grand Vapor Slams Vape Revolution for Sentinel Clone

In a move that has Grand Vapor Mods fuming, Vape Revolution announced today that it is selling the J Creations M28 mod, an American-made clone of Grand Vapor’s Sentinel mechanical mod.

“Don’t know who Vaperev is, but copying is so damn pathetic. Stealing design is a desperate move.”

-Grand Vapor

The announcement of the mod’s availability was posted to Vape Revolution’s Facebook page Monday afternoon, describing the M28, which is listed for $150 at Vape Revolutions web store, as “Pinoy Designed, American Made,” but Grand Vapor’s reaction makes it clear that permission was not asked for, or given, for copying their mod.

This announcement comes shortly after Vape Revolution got into hot water with Style of Mojo, maker of the Chi You, for selling unauthorized U.S.-made parts for the Korean mod. As a result, Vape Revolution is no longer a reseller of the Chi You.

    Was there a patent or something like it in the first place? :D

      Patents — particularly international patents — are very expensive and time-consuming to acquire, to you’re not likely to see people patent stuff like mods. The market moves too fast and the people who build them don’t generally have the kind of resources it can take to make it through the process.

    For these types of mod, the type of patent they can get from the USPTO is a design patent. But Vaperev made enough changes that it will not infringe on Grand Vapor’s design even if they did patent their Sentinal Mod. What is surprising is that Mojo did not try to obtain a Utility patent for his flat cap design – where the battery contact portion can be adjusted for minor lengths to accomdiate batteries that can not touch the contact.
    Either way, a patent is only good if you have the money to fight or defend it… which in some cases can run up to millions of dollars.
