Yeah, good CS opportunity for Xtar over there, just not a good thread title, as it is misleading. So, here’s another free bump for you! :bigsmile:

Identification Guide for Nitecore Charger Users
2014-10-30

Nitecore has become aware that counterfeit chargers, labeled with Nitecore trademark, have been sold by unauthorized companies. This identification guide aims to ensure only legitimate Nitecore chargers end up in the hands of our loyal customers as our customers expect and deserve the highest-level of satisfaction when purchasing Nitecore products. There are two approaches:

Approach 1:

Tool: a tiny magnet
Procedure: Place the magnet on the metal surface (battery positive pole contact points or slides in the slots) of the charger.
Reference: A legitimate Nitecore charger does not attract the magnet, while a counterfeit charger does the opposite.
Physics behind: The battery positive pole contact points and slides in the slots of a legitimate Nitecore charger are made from pure copper, a non-magnetic material with high electrical conductivity. Therefore Nitecore chargers do not attract magnets. The battery positive pole contact points and slides in the slots of counterfeit chargers are mostly made from iron, a material with poor corrosion resistance and electrical conductivity, and easily attaches to magnets.

Approach 2:

Procedure: Disassemble the charger; examine the internal circuit board and components.

Reference: The capacitors of legitimate Nitecore chargers are developed by Niteocre and labeled with Nitecore trademark.

The sales of counterfeit products labeled as Nitecore chargers poses a considerable threat to customer interest and violates our intellectual property rights. Nitecore reserves the right to take any legal action against such behavior. We have implemented a Report Program for information about companies and individuals making or supplying counterfeit Nitecore products. Please accept our thanks in advance for reporting counterfeits.

Contact Email: info@nitecore.com

Illustrations are at the page this is quoted from, if you’re not sure what exactly to do to check your Nitecore charger.

I own an I4 from several years ago — bought from DinoDirect in 2012

it fails the magnet test. Hm. Much older model

I emailed Nitecore today since I just found this test page to ask, though it’s performed fine.
I’m guessing it’s an earlier model but not the earliest and that this test is for models made as of late 2014 when they put the method online.

Mine has: — yellow label “Made in China by SYSMAX Ind.” and with SYSMAX Ind and 2051130410076 engraved on the back of the case.
It’s the one that has bays 1 and 3, 2 and 4 paired — the later model differs.
Haven’t taken it apart yet to look at the innards.

NiteCorn charges use unique corn charging technology that can’t be faked. They need no verification system.

I don’t know why it took me til yesterday to find Nitecore’s page describing fakes and the magnet test.
I did email them at the address they provide where they ask people to contact them about possible fake chargers:

Reference: The capacitors of legitimate Nitecore chargers are developed by Niteocre …

EDIT — not sure which charger they picture here, anyone recognize the innards?

(And yes, they really did misspell their own company’s name, but the picture shows the capacitors labeled “Nitecore”

not “Niteocre”)

And I don’t know — yet — whether that test is only applicable to chargers they made recently (like late in 2014 when they published that page).

But I’m curious, now that they have published the magnet test — and the pictures showing where to find the Nitecore name on parts inside their chargers.

What ya got and when did ya got it from where?
