DID YOU KNOW…..(oh…here we go)…..That the 5S is actually a the name of a workplace organisation method that uses a list of five Japanese words: seiri, seiton, seiso, seiketsu, and shitsuke…translated as Sort, Set in order, Shine, Standardise and Sustain…….seriously, I know for a FACT that the majority of you will sleep better tonight knowing that insightful nugget of information….and you are indeed….welcome for that….Did the Chinese adopt this methodology with their vape gear..?…
I literally have no fucking clue…….
You’re being sarcastic aren’t you…..how very British of you….
Cast your minds back….sayyyy….12 months, You might remember a certain playground handbags at dawn fiasco between two vape big hitters of the time, Limitless and Ijoy..
These were two companies that got into bed with each other over a certain RDTA, Vapor Hub (Limitless) were responsible for the design, marketing and western sales side of things, Ijoy the R&D and manufacturing, Bills weren’t paid….promises were broken….shots were fired…..allegiances crumbled….and more catastrophically…Moral business ethics clashed…..This was an American company giving their none patented ideas to a Chinese manufacturer under the premise that ‘trust’ was a binding contract…..and then didn’t pay the bill for manufacturing because Ijoy sold the product to Easterners first before shipping them over to Limitless….The ensuing very public squabble over who owned the RDTA was just a tad embarrassing..
For those that wonder why the Chinese bring out so many ripped off ideas well…Copyright infringement is a fairy tale over there, you’re out of your jurisdiction, and if you’re not…no one gives a shit, And their ‘If you allow yourself to get cheated…you deserved it’ mentality does not sit well with Westerners….But there it was, The Ijoy Combo was born, and whether you are on team Limitless or team Ijoy with that whole debacle one thing is apparent, If you’re gonna do business with the Chinese…
Since the divorce however…..Ijoy have supplied us with no less than 5 different variations of the RDTA, The last one…imaginatively named the ‘5’…was a sure fire hit with it’s over generous airflow options and unique filling system…so what’s in store for the latest sibling?……not the ‘6’….too obvious….Ijoy have ‘borrowed’ Apples terminology and gone with the 5s….because….well…..why not….it seems nothing is indeed…sacred.
