    Fake Pivot Raizins

    A heads up.

    Looks like the market is flooded with em',so check it out before U buy one!

    They are a great product but the copy's are naturally shiet.

    This is how the originals look/are:

    There's pics of copy's in the links above,how to spot differences etc.

    But what U see in the originals link above is how they should look.

    U guys can do the rest of the work.

    Remember,dont settle for an inferior copy,get the real deal!

    what I found is that the original VS-ME comes with 5 earthing cables of different lengths, fake ones come with 3 cables. The other differences can only be seen if u have a real one next to it. I'll post pics in the review thread.

    So it does then?

    I thought it just had a + and - off the unit and that connects to the battery?

    I have the blue one with the cables already..

    Sorry dude miscommunication.

    VS-M is just the Raizin
    VS-ME is Razin with 5 earth cables and attachment.

    You are correct the Raizin itself just have the + and - cables.

    As Promised

    First question..... Is this real or fake?




    Lets start comparing... starting with the front of the box



    The one on the right is the real deal, left is fake. The difference - The Illustrated Raizin on the box cover is clearly visible

    Back of box is the most obvious



    On the fake packaging(left) the print of the Raizin looks like it's glowing.

    Basically print quality is a little worse than the original, but if you don't have a real box next to it then it is a bit hard to tell.

    Now on to the product itself .....


    Guess which is which






    Main - tell tale signs
    1) The "Mega" Word is thicker on the fake
    2) The top of the LED display is smooth on the fake
    3) The print of "15" on the 2 rear resistors is very faint, the real one is engraved in white
    4) The word "condensor" on the super condensor is in normal font as opposed to being in bold on the real one
    5) There are 2 of the blue things on the front of the fake and only one on the real.

    I read that another way to tell is the K symbol on the condensors, unfortunately on the fake I got it also had the K. I am actually quite impressed with the copy as I would never had known if I had not had a real one to compare with.

    So is this the genuine article?



    Nope.. it's the fake one

    Hope this helps


    Just for laughs... At least the seller is truthful

    Pretty impressive! Though, I wonder, how much of a difference there is in the actual usability/performance of the fake VS real - any input guys?
