After a lot of procrastination I eventually decided to buy the Innokin Ares V2 and received it on Wednesday.
I haven’t built it yet but just decided to give it a proper examination, which included the box for some strange reason. Probably like most I couldn’t care less about a box as long as it contains it’s contents correctly.
I live in Australia and bought it from a reputable Australian retailer who I have used before on many occasions. I’ve also checked the “scratch and sniff “ code and it’s definitely authentic according to that. It appears perfect in every way and exactly like all pictures and reviews I have watched or read.
Therefore I’ve zero concerns on the product authenticity or the retailer I bought it from. In fact the contrary applies as I’m looking forward to trying it and appreciate how the vendor has dealt with my little bit of business.
But once reading the box I noticed there’s a sticker applied which reads, and I quote “Sale only allowed in the United States”.
Considering I bought this in Australia and it’s authentic I’m a tad confused as obviously it wasn’t bought in the United States. If the sale of vaping merchandise was only allowed worldwide in the USA I’d understand it but that’s not the case and it’s perfectly legal to buy this particular product within Australia.
In all honesty I couldn’t care less what’s written on the box as long as it works somewhere near what I expected but I am wondering why it’s there in the first place.
Was this particular RTA originally destined for the USA but somehow managed to make it to Australia or something similar?
