The poor quality control among other factors makes counterfeit products frustrating to use. Since they’ve made their way into the market, though, do you know how to look out for a fake Smoggy Bar? This in-depth guide will help you figure out whether your Smoggy Bar is real or fake.
To confirm you're holding an authentic Smoggy Bar Disposable device it is always recommended to buy direct or from an authorized retailer.
THERE ARE FOUR MAIN CRITERIA USED FOR VERIFICATION
Each SMOGGY Bar box is sealed with an authenticator label you can scratch off. The best way to avoid using counterfeit products is to register and verify your Smoggy Bar through our online registration page, using the authentication code found on the box.
Each of our Smoggy Bars comes in a package that features a color gradient design. If the gradient appears pixelated, or if the design deviates from our official packaging design, it usually means the Smoggy Bar is fake.
Any font deviations on the back or side of the box may indicate a fake Smoggy Bar. The font should be consistent all over the box and there should be no obvious deviations in boldness or size.
If, while using a Smoggy Bar, the juice tastes harsh and the vapor production isn’t smooth, the item is probably fake. In this case, we recommend that you stop using the item immediately and register it on our website. If you discover that the item is authentic, but the juice tastes harsh, contact us for a complimentary replacement.
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOUR SMOGGY BAR IS REAL OR FAKE?
Counterfeit and clone production companies do their best to create identical models of the products they copy. Some are able to get close to the mark, but if you know what to look for you can always tell the difference. What should you keep an eye out for to know if your Smoggy Bar is real or fake?
Be on the lookout when you head to the convenience store or gas station to purchase a Smoggy Bar. First of all, each Smoggy Bar has four separate parts to the device and its packaging and display. If possible, look for all four of the following:
- 10-pack display box (if possible)
- Box packaging of the device
- Device wrapper
Official Smoggy Bar devices come in these three separate pieces of packaging, from the display box to the device packaging to the device wrapper. Each piece has unique aspects to look for to know if your Smoggy Bar is real or fake.
10-PACK DISPLAY CASE
When a company purchases Smoggy Bars in bulk, they come in display cases with 10 devices in each. The first thing to check for is the number of devices in the display case. If it has anything other than 10 Smoggy Bars in it, it isn’t an official product.
Each display box has specific things to check for. When looking directly at the front of the box, the top section should be black and have the “Smoggy Bar” logo along with a trademark symbol. If the flavor is a limited edition flavor (ex. Tangerine Ice or Strawberry Banana), there will be a special Limited Edition gold seal in the top corner.
The front will also display the name of the flavor alongside a picture of the Smoggy Bar contained inside. That bar should have the Smoggy logo, the name of the flavor, and the correct nicotine level on it as well. There will be a large nicotine warning label taking up the bottom third of the display box. A small half-circle also sits just above the warning label displaying the flavor.
Look for the official Smoggy Bar stamp with a scratch-away area revealing a code authenticity on the right-hand side of the box. You’ll find further information about the device on the back of the box. The most important thing to look for is along the top flap, an instruction printed in red stating “SEE DETAILS INSIDE.”
Each Smoggy Bar device comes packaged in a small, rectangular box. These boxes are essentially smaller versions of the 10-pack display case. The white Smoggy Bar logo with a trademark symbol stands out against a black background at the top of the box. A nicotine warning label takes up the bottom third of the packaging.
The name of the flavor is displayed prominently on the front of the box alongside an image of the Smoggy Bar device contained inside the box. The device image should be the correct color that corresponds with the flavor. It should also have the Smoggy Bar logo, the name of the flavor, and the corresponding nicotine level pictured on it.
The back of the box contains information about Smoggy Bar along with instructions for use. There will be a barcode around the middle of the back as well as another nicotine warning label along the bottom. Also, look for a stamp with a scratch-away area revealing a code to confirm your device’s authenticity.
Once you open an individual Smoggy Bar box, the device itself is contained within a tearaway wrapper. The wrapper should be the correct color that corresponds with the bar’s flavor. It will also have the white Smoggy Bar logo, the flavor, and the nicotine level contained within the bar.
When you have the device in your hand, you’ll be able to know if your Smoggy Bar is real or fake. Each Smoggy Bar flavor has a unique color associated with it. The bar should be the correct color, matching the wrapper and box that it came in.
Each Smoggy Bar device should have four components printed on it: the Smoggy Logo with a trademark, the flavor’s name, the nicotine level, and an arrow pointing to the area you inhale from. The bottoms of all authentic Smoggy Bar devices will also have two divots in them.
