Select Elite is one brand of vape cartridge that gets good reviews across the board. We certainly had no complaints about Select Elite in our review.

The logo and basic design are easy to copy. Select regularly gets excellent recommendations all around and the carts price up to $70, so it’s no wonder that the knock-offs want a piece of this action.

Since counterfeits are getting so good that telling them apart becomes impossible, the biggest tip-off may be price. Selects seem to go for top dollar, so anything at a bargain probably isn’t.
