    With Fasttech, if it doesn't say "Authentic" in the listing, it's a clone.

    Mostly they are clones but if it says specifically "original" or "authentic" they should be real. I know they sell a lot of authentic smoktech stuff but there are a few things that are definetly clones. That being said, clones aren't always bad. I bought a chi-you clone from fasttech and i love it. The best advice i can give is to research the specific item you want and be sure the one from fasttech has all the options you want.

    Just looked. Notable that they've suspended sales of the VTR, apparently the manufacturer is having trouble keeping up with demand. With the 134, they have both the authentic and the clone.

    Authentic: $107.26 Authentic iTaste 134 Variable Wattage APV Starter Kit - black version at FastTech - Worldwide Free Shipping

    Clone:$42.70 iTaste 134 Styled Mechanical Mod - aluminum + stainless steel at FastTech - Worldwide Free Shipping

    Note the use of the word "Styled."

    Congrats! It is no easy task to quit after 40 years but you did it I will warn you that if you order from fasttech, prepare to wait. Some orders i have placed with them got to me in 10 days and some orders took weeks. I have heard if you order batteries from them the order will get held up in customs for longer. Other than that they are very good to work with. Congrats again and happy vaping

    the clone is actually a mechanical mod while the authentic is variable wattage

    The only thing I would say is be prepared to wait for it as FT delivery has got worse.

    I would be leery of buying the VTR from anywhere except a VERY reputable dealer. The first few production runs had some issues that have since been corrected by Innokin (or so I'm told). A reputable vendor will deal with you quickly if you have any issues with it. I have had some issues working through the place I bought mine, but hopefully have ironed all that out and will be getting my new one soon.

    I would also recommend the Green version, if you can live with the green color. I found with the defective one I got that the silver finish is a serious fingerprint magnet, and after holding it for even a few moments, it looked awful. The green should help hide some of that and keep it nicer looking ... Just my and as always ... YMMV!

    With all due respect, I keep hearing that, but it hasn't been true in my case. From what I gather, it's only batteries and juice that are being held up.

    I recently (two weeks ago), received an innokin SVD (why I bought it is beyond me, I didn't need it, just wanted to check it out) from Fasttech. It took exactly ten days from the day I placed the order, to arrive at my house. I also had a few small vaping accessories in the order.

    That's about average for me. I just checked and that was the seventh order I've made in the last three months. Not trying to push Fasttech, just relating my experience.

    As for my 134. I bought it from Discount Vapers. I believe they're in Oakville, Connecticut. Couldn't have been happier with the transaction. Good price, very professional website, fast order processing and shipping. Great company IMO.

    BTW, love my SS 134. Seems to take a half second to heat up, but no biggie. As for the SVD. Nope, don't like it much. Really crappy button design IMO. It's my very least liked APV. You can't beat the Vamo 3 (4/5) for the simplicity, ease of button operations, and intuitiveness. Although I mostly use my Provari's. Got a camo green VTR coming soon from one of the co-ops (I hope).

    best regards, larry mac
