OUCH, My ceremic wick cracked today!!
My ceremic wick has cracked to pieces today...
I am not sure how that happened but just found out when i was trying to take it out for my weekly wash.
Is it covered under warranty?
What do i need to do to get a replacement?
I am hoping i don't need to sent it back because i am all the way in Australia...
I really dont understand why everyone has to start a thread when something like this happens, if it was me I would contact innovapor and give them a chance to take care of it before shouting it from the rooftops. I am not trying to be mean but wouldnt it be better to contact them first and wait for a response before posting a public thread? Honestly, I am not trying to start a fight, just my opinion.
Contact email@example.com and tell them what happened and they will get a replacement sent out to you.

Darwin, Provari w/eBaron Dripper Pro and huge collection of other everything else !!!
Woohoo...like all said... Innovapor is kick ass in customer service. I got my tracking number on sunday after a brief email.
Cannot get better than this!!
We are here for you guys, no matter what. It's how we keep y'all around .
My ceramic has broken too. But I am having a very difficult time with Innovapor customer service. I was told by Mark that I must be "approved for a warranty replacement by Apex". I offered to send a photograph of the broken ceramic piece but was told No, I would have to send the broken ceramic pieces in to innovapor and then they would send the pieces to Apex and Apex would either approve or disapprove the warranty replacement. This all sounds like quite a process. I'm going to try sending him a photograph of the broken ceramic and hope that squashes what sounds like a long delay.
My Ultra Max is my daily vape. I love it. It's pretty much all I use and now it's dead. 40 bucks for a new wick. Don't really know what to do. If anything changes, I'll edit or amend this post.
Edit: I sent innovapor the picture. Mark's answer did not change. The new policy is that ALL warranty replacements now require the covered part to be shipped in first, then sent to Apex, (no photos) then wait/hope for approval by Apex. I've just emailed Apex. Maybe that'll help.

Edit: Some good news... I got a response to my email from Apex. (on a Saturday!) The manager there is sending me a new wick under warranty right away, instead of me having to send my broken one in for approval first. I'm happy about that. Props to Apex for helping me get my Max up & running quickly!

It's funny how InnoVapor loves to tout the great customer service (the post just above yours) yet in actuality, they change their return policy after you purchase and expect you to be without your device for up to 30 days while they confirm...yup it's cracked!?!
And I too am glad that everything worked out for you...albeit, with no help from InnoVapor.
