Morning ladies and gents Hoping someone here can give me a bit of advice. I bought my gunmetal Lost Vape Paranormal DNA75c on the 10th (so it's 12 days old), and was having a nice chilled vape last night when my wife asked me what happened to the mod. I hadn't even noticed before yesterday but the gunmetal seems to be flaking off the bottom (on the battery door). I know some will say it's man-handling or carelessly chucking it onto hard surfaces etc, but that's just not me at all. I have never put this down anywhere remotely rough. Anybody who has ever seen my mods will know I look after them. I bought this one to be my everyday vape I take to work, and it has only been out and about with me once this past Monday, and it never left my pocket except for the occasional hit (and a pic with a fish). At work it sits on a little square of soft rubber on my desk, and at home it sits on my wooden side table. I wouldn't buy a R2k+ mod for everyday use if I wasn't going to look after it. Upon closer inspection, just running my fingernail very lightly over this area causes more of the gunmetal coating to flake off. I can see how sitting on a table would make it worse. In fact I think it would come off regardless of where you put it down, it comes off just that easy. My question now is what to do? Or rather is there anything I can do? Could it be bad QC from Lost Vape and maybe warrant a replacement? Or is it something that is considered "normal wear" so you know, just grin (unlikely) and bear it? Basically I would like to know from anyone who has maybe experienced something similar what my options are. Like I say, this is only happening on the battery door at the bottom, the rest of the mod is still in perfect condition. I haven't had a chance to go to the shop I bought it from yet, and just wanted to see what the consensus was before I make the trip for nothing.
