    I would like to know if Unbranded/Generic vape tanks work as well as the Authentic vape tanks.

    Hi,
    Depends on the maker and the model.
    Are you interested in something in particular?

    Do you want a rebuildable or a "drop in coil" tank?
    Cheers

    Ditto, I've had some that nearly fell apart in my hands and others that were as good as or very close to the original.

    Personally, I would not purchase generic "mainstream" tanks nor coils. (Aspire, Joy, Kanger, Innokin, ect)
    The originals are easily obtained and priced competitively.

    Cheers

    The main difference I've found is that clones will use cheap o-rings, screws and insulators. Metal portion is close to 1:1 depending on manufacturer. Never buy clone/generic coils.

    It's a coin flip. I've bought clones (knowingly) that performed as well as their parent and also bought a few that "tanked" on day one.

    One was a Protank clone (version 1) that would have leaked through a whole roll of duct tape.

    In another thread, someone asked about using clones to cannibalize parts for the original. That too would be a coin flip. Cleito has been out for a while, so finding one in someone's clearance section shouldn't be hard.

    Give VapeCrawler a try. It's like Google for vaping gear. It doesn't hit every site, but it covers a lot of'em.
