    On the 7th of August 2020, I placed an order for a Vaporesso Gen 220W Kit with Sir Vape, (order no. 121235), which was delivered to me on the 11th of August 2020, (Four weeks tomorrow).

    This mod has a mere 4637 puffs on it as I type this and ... the gold paint (or is it plating), is coming off at an alarming rate :-( ... Is this normal?

    Some people just have naturally more acids and stuff in their system/sweat. Also depends what you handled with your hands, before operating your mod. Example, my wife is wayyyy more harder on mods than i am. Her mods look like its been thru a war, with all the chemicals and stuff she works with in a day. (Hair Stylist). And also her system is naturally more acidic than mine.

    But ja. Could also just be a bad manufacturing.. China pumps those things out like a wors machine..

    I agree that some people have an acidic skin that turns silver black, however I'm not one of them thankfully, and I certainly haven't touched anything acidic, or for that matter something alkaline enough to do that, so I'm going to put it down to kak plating or painting from Vaperesso.

    Funny thing is that I didn't like the bronze bits initially, but they've grown on me, and this is somewhat disappointing having it happen in the first month ... O well ... I guess I could strip out the button and top 510, and send em' off for PROPER bronze plating :rolleyes:

    Picking up on an old thread here, but alas, I have a Gen S mod doing the same thing.
    The button is white already, and the paint is peeling off the mod and its only +- 6mnths old.
    Never been dropped etc...
    I'm not that impressed with it... but I thought I'd try one as lots of people were raving about them..

    I guess it's the luck of the draw with these mods. I'm on my second one and, touch wood, I haven't had an issue.
    @Hooked I'm not sure if your suggestion will work, given the type of material the gen is wrapped with, but maybe worth a try

    Wouldnt be the 1st mod Ive painted, its just annoying!

    dont get me wrong, its a nice mod... but the paint coming off so soon without being dropped etc.... thats enough to steer me away from them..
