    Default Fake/Clone Nimbus

    I'm currently using a Chimbus from FT on my KTS x6 mod. I figured it was time to upgrade so I came across a Nimbus v3 but the price looks too good to be true. Are there any fakes or clones out there that look almost exactly like the real deal? These are the photos the seller posted representing the Nimbus v3 he is selling:

    How much is he selling it? Could be low if it's used...
    Also the V4 is out, so the price of the V3 has decreased.

    I haven't seen a Chimbus with the logo.. YET.

    After looking at my top cap, the top of it is more "rounded" not squared of like the one the OP pictured, looks fishy to me.

    looks like the top doesn't have the splashback protection.

    Here the original link from the seller:

    Nimbus V3 Rebuildable Drip Atomizer Stainless Steel | eBay

    For $30, it's either I'm overpaying for a clone or I'm getting a deal on a Nimbus lol.

    If thats a clone, its a really nice one. The FT chimbus top is more rounded and the slope is more angled. I'm thinking about picking that ebay one up.

    Does the authentic nimbus come prebuilt?

    The listing states it comes with a prebuilt coil.... I know the ft ones do.
