❗Warning❗ ¿fake? Nitecore MH20 shorts battery

I used a cell with a “wider” top today and the MH20 flat out shorted it out.
There is a bar next to the plus pole, which is connected to GND and as such shorted the cell…
Well no harm done but the protection killed the spring in the back cap.

Did this happen to anyone else?
I am considering to remove the bar or increase the height of the plus pole…

Ok the bar is NOT connected to ground on my old MH20… which is good.
I am getting the feeling, since all 3 are this way, that these are either fake, or a bad run.

Banggood sold them for 50 USD, which is a quite low price and now I might know why.
