Why Are So Many Vapers Angry With VOOPOO?

    The highly anticipated Vandy cheap vape deals
    Pulse BF 80W will not house the VOOPOO 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.



    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.
