VT is now offering the brass version with no logos.
That's pretty interesting..
The "reputable" clone is SureFire's KING mod.
Not identical, but a pretty obvious play off the Chi You.
I pre-ordered the brass - no logo chi-you/ba gua clone from VaportekUsa.
Here: Bagua Clone 18350/18650 "Pre Order"
I know it says Ba Gua clone, but a lot of the China cloners/manufacturers can't seem to get their APV clones straight. They seem to "blend" things together. Either that or they do it on purpose for cross-marketing.
It's obviously a Chi-You type clone. The lock ring and adjustable air flow top cap looks much more like the Chi-You.
They just screwed up and put Ba Gua logos on it. That's why I ordered the brass model with no logos.
The Ba Gua in 18650 (which are very rare - usually only seen in 14500 - but this ti model was 18650 BaGua 22MM Ti 18650 - Polished Finish)
does look a little bit like the Chi-You - but actually more like a Nemesis with a Caravela top.
This Sigelei is definitely not a Ba Gua clone.
It looks like HCigar is making a Chi-You clone too. I haven't seen any resellers yet.
And not sure if it comes with the correct logos - my Sentinal V3 clone made by HCigar does not have the Grand Vapor logo on it.
Any how, if Sigelei got the switch done well and that airflow control works, I'll be happy. I like to use bottom air fed toppers like carto tanks, bccs, and oddys - flush mounted. Airflow becomes a problem with mods without proper air flow for these.
This Sigelei looks like it would be perfect for them.
Ciggysvapespot.com is doing a preorder on chi you clones, from the pictures look like the same thing and they also posted it as being silver platted? Has all the engravings and stuff what do you guys think about this?
I got my Chi You clone today. It is really nice. All brass adjustable contacts. Comes with an 18650 tube and an 18500 tube and will fit an 18350 in the main tube. The throw of the switch is super short and easy. Engravings looks great.
