Different electronic cigarette brands have different warranties ranging from a few days all the way up to a year, which is the most I’ve ever seen.
Since the warranty periods on electronic cigarettes vary so much, it’s important that you understand how a company stands behind their product and whether or not you can get it replaced or repaired if it breaks down or if you can flat-out return it altogether if you just don’t like it.
Now, I’ve never seen a brand that you could return just because you didn’t like it, especially considering you put your lips on the device to smoke it, so that’s really a no-brainer. However, you should consider a device that has a decent warranty for two reasons. First of all, a warranty obviously shows that the manufacturer and retailer stand behind the product. Second, in the event that your electronic cigarette malfunctions or is damaged in some way, you can get it repaired or replaced free of charge during the warranty period.
Being that electronic cigarettes are so new, many retailers are just selling rebranded versions of the same product with little or no warranty. I don’t have any problem with retailers selling rebranded versions of the same product, in fact that’s a good thing with any new product because it allows that retailer to choose a manufacturer that is much larger and firmly established from which to source its products, leaving that retailer able to focus on customer service and the business of marketing his product. The downside of this, however, is that a lot of times you get small retailers with little knowledge of the manufacturing process behind their products, and little control of this process, who are unwilling to warrant the product against defects.
That said, I personally own several models of electronic cigarettes that came without warranties simply because that’s the only way those models can be had and I had heard good things about them from friends. No warranty is not necessarily a bad thing, you just have to make sure you’re buying a reputable model from a reputable source.
For those looking for specific products offering longer warranties, check out NJOY or BluCigs; I believe each of those products offers a one-year warranty.
