Fake Ping batteries on Ebay

There is a scammer selling a green duct tape battery on Ebay that is not the real Ping battery, though his ad claims it is. This is according to Ping himself. I don't belive the specifications of the battery either. DONT BUY EM!

Re: Fake Ping batteries on Ebay

I'm a little web challenged, and can't quite figure out how to add a link. The seller is qffx.

If you want a real Ping battery make sure you buy from pingping227.

Ping is trying to get him off ebay, or at least to stop claiming he has Ping batteries. It's no longer the Real McCoy but the Real Ping. There will be more of this in the future, I'm sure, with folks selling cheesy batteries with pumped up specifications. Ping sells a battery that meets his posted specs, and does not rip anybody off.

So don't buy from the others unless you want to be a beta tester at your expense.

Be the pack leader.

I see that now he is posting auctions without the claim that they are Ping cells. He still claims the same specs for the battery as before though. Since he was, er, mistaken about the source of his cells, I would seriously question whether his specifications are not also,er, mistaken.

Re: Fake Ping batteries on Ebay

I noticed Ping's batteries going for some very high amounts on ebay right now. Over $900 for his 48V20AH pack that used to go for under $600 delivered. I have two and I am glad I got them before everybody caught on what a deal they were. His success is bound to encourage counterfeits.

I think his prices haven't changed that much if you contact him direct instead of trying for an auction.
