    Hi - Anyone got any advice on how to tell the difference between the authentic Pinacle Pro and the now available Chinese fakes - Where would you start to look????

    Cheers......

    Buy it from an authorized dealer. Chances are if the price is too good to be true then it is probably a fake, also don't buy used unless the seller can show documented proof that they bought from an authorized seller and you trust them (who can you really trust on the internet though, I could buy a real one to keep for myself and a bunch of fakes and just show people the real receipt when asked for it)

    Hi the best way to tell the fake pnp, is first the button on the fake is level with the plastic surrounding it. The original's button is slightly pushed in with a raised plastic edge.
    Another is the seam of the plastic meets in the middle of the front on the fake, as in if ur looking at it front on you'll see a line going down the middle ,where the plastic must clip into place. The original has 2 seams on the front edges not going thru the middle. The last thing I noticed was the bullets were smaller. & the charger was slightly diff. If your unsure send me close up pics & ill do my best to help.

    Stay away from Alibabas website, I see a lot of fake vaporizers there. The Pinnacle Pro and I've seen the fake Ascent. These are garbage people and probably toxic. They'll take your money and you'll be left with junk. Go with a well known vendor.

    Hey thanks for the info - I ended up sticking with my Solo as the Pinacle Pro deals were too dodgy when I was looking and i didn't know how to spot the fakes. The Solo with the water diffuser attached is hard to beat......
