Why Are So Many Vapers Angry With VOOPOO?
The highly anticipated Vandy Vape Pulse BF 80W will not house the voopoo drag nano pod Gene chip as expected. Reviewer Tony B – who is also the product’s designer – just announced this upcoming change in an emotional YouTube video. Tony, who also designed the Pulse 22, Pulse 24 and the Pulse BF box mod, is accusing VOOPOO of purposefully delaying the manufacturing of the Pulse while at the same time preparing their own regulated squonk box.
The story, at least from Tony’s perspective, goes like this: Vandy Vape had been preparing its own proprietary chip for a regulated edition of the Pulse BF since last year. Tony B liked the chip but proposed that Vandy Vape could try sourcing VOOPOO ’s Gene chip instead, even if it meant a slightly higher production cost. Negotiations started, the two companies agreed on a deal for a shipment of initial 40,000 chips and set a delivery date around the Chinese New Year (mid-February), giving Tony and Vandy Vape the green light for mentioning the Gene chip in promotional material.Vaporesso Aurora Play
According to Tony, instead of delivering the chips as promised, VOOPOO started escalating the costs and delaying the manufacturing process while at the same time secretly working at their own Gene powered regulated squonk box. A couple of days ago and long after pre-orders had started rolling, VOOPOO backed off the deal completely, claiming that the Pulse design resembled VOOPOO ‘s own design of the Drag mod and leaving the Pulse in limbo.
Instead of cancelling the project as VOOPOO reportedly proposed, Vandy Vape and Tony have decided to fast-track the process of fitting their own chip in the Pulse BF 80W — even if that meant kissing off one of the biggest selling points of the device.A lot of reviewers have been showing their support for Tony B on their social media accounts, with many calling for a boycott of VOOPOO due to its business practices. Vaping Bogan went as far as to even break a VOOPOO Drag on camera. At the same time, VOOPOO’s Instagram account has been bombarded with the #boycottvoopoo hashtag from angry fans.
Tony B ensured everyone that the Pulse BF 80W with the Vandy Vape chip will be released soon and that vendors will be refunding the price difference to customers who pre-ordered the squonk box.VOOPOO released an official statement in response to the allegations today on its website:u2022eney7485yyWEEEEDD
