If you’re in the market for a SvoeMesto Kayfun Lite then you better keep your eyes peeled if you spot a deal that seems too good to be true because you could end up buying a fake!

Retailing at RM400 (approx. US$125) here in Malaysia, the Kayfun Lite is the latest atomizer to be cloned by China following the recent release of the cloned Steam Boy Storm Rider and Steam Turbine.

According to posts on various Facebook groups that popped up this afternoon, the Kayfun Lite clone is retailing between RM110 – RM200 (US$35 – 60). The sellers call it a 1:1 clone, but I wouldn’t recommend that you buy one before you check it out in person.

Remember what happened with the Storm Rider clone? The sellers called that a 1:1 clone too, but look how that turned out…

In other clone related news, a lot of interest has been centered around the Vape Tech Amax, a VV/VW mod from China that was released at around the same time as the DNA20 powered Renovation Mods EL3V8TOR.

The manufacturers of the Amax claim on their website that the Amax runs a DNA20 chip, and this sparked a lot of debate among vapers everywhere. Some people (me included) theorized that the manufacturers could be running a genuine DNA20 chip with some cheap tubes, while others were a little more skeptical from the get go.

Doing a little investigative work of his own, my buddy Eddie got in touch with the manufacturers and found out something very interesting…

…of course the chip is not the original DNA20. we only used the similar chip…

Well, I guess that answers it…!

Although the display on the Amax looks exactly the same as the display on a genuine DNA20 chip, it turns out that it is in fact a cloned or “similar” chip. So heads up guys, if you’ve ordered an Amax I really wouldn’t recommend that you push it all the way to 20w or you may be in for a nasty surprise…

    And………. adjusts in whole 1 watt increments only- I don’t even like that most mods are only by .5, so… no thanks. 🙂 Happy vaping & thanks for the showing.

      Now that you mention it, funny that it even bothers to show the one decimal point on the screen. Hah!

      Nice spot Amanda. 🙂

    I have been having a lot of trouble getting info on the Amax and was hoping that since you are closer to China they might actually be available in your area? I have also seen a few posts saying that the Vapetech Amax was a scam but can’t find any info on this anywhere else.

      Hi Fredm

      All the info that I have posted is from their website. Not much updates have come up, besides their sales manager admitting that it doesn’t run an authentic DNA20 chip. To be frank, I don’t think too much of the Amax. It’ll probably run the same chip that’s on the ZMAX or Vamo, but I reckon that they’ll take off the limited from 15w and let it go up to 20w. As Amanda has pointed out, it’ll only do increments at 1w jumps which isn’t very good after all…

      Cheers,
      VW

    Ah ok thanks. That’s true, I would certainly prefer 0.1W increments but so long as it has 0.1V resolution I’m fine. As for the Zmax chip though, if we’re talking about the chip that’s in the Sigelei Zmax v3 that’s supposed to be an amazing performer and I’d certainly be down to try it for $50 or so. I certainly never expected it to be a real DNA20 chip though but it may be a copy though,I suppose we’ll just have to see.

  4. I am rather confused about the difference between kayfun lite and kayfun lite plus…

    1. Vaping Wern says:

      To be frank, the differences are minuscule. The Kayfun Lite Plus has an added oring on the fill screw, and an adjustment screw to tweak the airflow. That’s all! Hahaha!! 🙂
