To preface my post, I did pick up a Terminator C R/A while I was awaiting parts to complete a Ody V2 and an opportunity to get my Ithaka, which I have received.

Moving forward . . . There is no way of getting around the clones. There is a huge market for such items, as many vapers cannot afford the high end items, as many of us are able to.

After receiving my Ithaka from Guru, I felt bad that I had purchased the Terminator. Imeo has put a lot of work into his devices and continued support.

At the end of the day, it will be up to each individual to decide which path to take. For myself, I will purchase another genuine Ithaka. I have to support someone, whom has afforded me a fantastic vaping experience.

The thing with copies of an original product is a well known one, and not always a bad situation.

People who cant afford the original will buy a cheaper copy. The manufacturer of the original does not loose any money because the buyer of the copy would not have bought the original.

But the producer of the original gains interest in his product since most people who buy a copy, really want the original and the word spreads. It can actually increase the sale of a high end device when copies of it spreads.

This has been debated a lot in the fashion industry and i think it was on TED I saw a speaker adress this situation.

Just looking at the situation objectivly. :D

I buy GG as much as possible. I did buy two term-c's from BA but they are going to people that can't afford Ody's.

I myself have a Ody V2, 2X GGTS and a GG Stealth and soon to have a Ithaka.

Clones, knock offs or what ever you want to call them are just what they are, cheap copy's of great devices!!

Take the BT804, piece of shit!!! Hard as fuck to build and only holds 1ml of juice, what the fuck were they thinking!! They were thinking how to build a tank for .50 cents and sell it for $15.00 and know they are ass raping the people that get them!!

Ok I'm done, going off to beat the bishop!!
