1. Vape OEM & ODM Defenition and Process

1.1 Vape ODM

Competent vape manufacturers can customize new products, from product design and molds to features, flavors, and packaging, all tailored to the customer’s requirements.

Typically, the customer provides the ODM manufacturer with ideas about the product’s appearance, functionality, and flavor, and the manufacturer designs the in-house PCBA based on the customer’s ideas, creates the molds, prototypes, tests, optimizes, mass produces, and sells the product under the customer’s brand name on the global market.

As a result, the product is manufactured primarily to the specifications required by the customer. The customer owns the ID and ownership of the product, the manufacturer just helps the customer to realize the product idea. Customers can register appearance patents, function patents, etc.

Depending on the functionality you require and the raw materials you choose, you can effectively control the cost of your ODM vapes. However, this usually requires a large order quantity, so your premarket research becomes especially important. In the long run, the ODM business model offers a highly profitable business model for vape brands.

Process of ODM Vape Customization:

Step 1: Determine the features and functionality of the vape

Step 2: If all the requirements are met, the customer will provide the drawing or design of the vape

Step 3: Confirm the main raw materials such as PCBA. According to the above two steps. This will determine the cost and quality of the vape.

Step 4: Confirm the cost of the ODM vape, including mold cost engineering cost, and the unit price of the product. To start a new project, there is usually a MOQ requirement for the first order, which varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, but the first order should be between 10,000 and 30,000 pieces.

Step 5: The ODM vape project agreement is signed, including timeline, samples, bulk order timing, patent issues, etc.

Step 6: The customer pays for the ODM vape, and the vape manufacturer begins custom work according to the agreement.

Step 7: Test samples and approve samples after vape molds are made

Step 8: Mass production of the vape order begins

1.2. Vape OEM

OEM is also known as private label vapes. As an importer or brand owner, OEM customization, before you start selling vapes, will make the vapes more suitable for brand sales.

Customization makes vapes more unique and competitive, such as custom exterior colors, product logos, displays, breathing lights, product packaging, and more.

Think about your vape

When smoking vapes, the breathing light begins to light up; 
Enjoying the pleasure of the flavor and smoke.

Customised vape themed boxes
OEM allows you can save time and investment and grab the vape market in the first place because you don’t need to research and design vapes. Instead, you can produce your brand under license from the manufacturer’s existing vape products.

However, you may also be aware of the disadvantages of OEM vape customization

One of the top reasons is that your vapes are not much different from competitors who use this business model, as the manufacturer may also sell vapes to other competitors. We support vape wholesalers for OEM customization.

OEM vape customization process:
Step 1: Select some samples of vapes from the manufacturer’s existing products for testing

Step 2: Confirm one or more SKUs for your OEM vapes

Step 3: Start the OEM vape project, such as the appearance of the color, brand logo, screen interface, breathing light, product packaging, and so on.

Step 4: Different OEM vape customizations will have different MOQ.

1.3 ODM - OEM Mixed Customisation

The vape industry has grown rapidly over the past few years and with it the increasing demand for personalized and high-quality products.OEM and ODM mixed customization is becoming a trend in the vape industry, especially for brands that focus on uniqueness and high performance.

In this model, customers usually do not change the base hardware of the vape, but rather add specific features such as temperature control, liquid volume monitoring, and even smart connectivity features that can be synchronized with a smartphone app, depending on their needs or the needs of a particular market.

This type of customization requires redesigning the PCBA of the vape based on the existing product model and customizing the software and firmware accordingly. This comprehensive and ideal customization solution provides a highly personalized product while saving time and investment.

The advantage of customized vapes is that the cost is relatively low as there is no need to redesign the casing for the vape. Customers can also choose the color and material of the custom casing and even a unique mouthpiece design to match their brand image.

The challenge with this type of customization, however, is that when adding new features to existing hardware, frequent testing and communication are required to ensure that the new features meet specific needs. This requires closer coordination and cooperation with the manufacturer to ensure the final quality of the product.

More and more OEM-ODM manufacturers are now offering this mixed customization option, which offers more customization possibilities, especially for wholesalers with large volume orders.

If you are interested in a customized vape project, do not hesitate to contact your supplier. Choosing a reliable supplier is key, they usually already have extensive experience with customization and can provide expert guidance and support.

Process Of OEM-ODM Vape Customization:

Step 1: Select some vape samples from the manufacturer’s existing products for testing to understand their performance and quality.

Step 2: After reviewing various designs, identify a look for ODM customization.

Step 3: Clarify with the manufacturer the features you wish to add or the main raw materials you wish to change, such as battery capacity, heating system, or mouthpiece design.

Step 4: The manufacturer needs to assess whether the existing hardware is capable of integrating the features or raw materials required by the customer.

Step 5: If technically feasible, the manufacturer will start to calculate the cost of the ODM customization as well as the cost of the final product.

Step 6: After the customer reviews and approves the cost estimate, the customization process is officially initiated.

Step 7: The manufacturer produces test samples and then fixes any errors found during the testing process.

Step 8: Once the samples meet the customer’s satisfaction criteria, the mass production order begins.

Review your bill of materials carefully to ensure that you are fully aware of all the elements used in your vape. For all components that may be covered by patents, you must confirm that these have been paid for or licensed.

While some technologies are free to use, such as certain open-source vape control software, it is always best to check beforehand. Any legal issues could pose a significant risk to you, especially if the product has already been manufactured and stored in a warehouse.

Patent licensing fees for vape products can range from a few dollars to thousands of dollars. While this fee can be quite high, it is not as expensive as a fine
