Avoid Counterfeits

Scosche Quality Icon

You deserve to enjoy your Scosche products knowing that they will deliver the level of quality and performance you’ve come to expect from us. Unfortunately knock-off electronics accessories are flooding the market and counterfeiters are becoming increasingly skillful at producing fakes that can be hard to spot.

Counterfeiting is illegal! Its victims are consumers who often unknowingly and in good faith purchase an item that is not certified, has no warranty, no return option and worse, may not even be safe. Counterfeit chargers and cables have been linked to cases of identity theft, battery damage, permanent damage to devices from unlimited power surges, electrocution and fires.

You’re not alone. If you bought, or suspect that a counterfeit is being offered as a genuine Scosche product, please contact our Technical Support Team

How To Spot A Counterfeit

The absolute best way to ensure you’re getting the genuine article is to either buy direct from us online at scosche.com or in-person by visiting one of our authorized dealers.

Here are some signs that a product being offered is a counterfeit:

  • Unrealistically low pricing
  • Out of focus or poor quality product images
  • Incorrect Scosche logo
  • Negative reviews or reviews that are poorly written, contain a lot of typos or just seem fake
  • If an online seller offers only a limited number of products, and only one or two brands
  • Product is of poor quality
  • Typos on the packaging or inserts
  • Missing warranty information. Note: all Scosche products come with a warranty and lifetime technical support

When looking for Scosche genuine products on Marketplace-type sites, be aware that:

  • Scosche’s only authorized sellers on Amazon.com (besides Amazon and Scosche Industries) are: Fitness on the Run and Clever Training
  • Walmart is the only authorized Scosche seller on Walmart.com
  • Scosche does not currently have any authorized sellers on the following marketplaces: eBay, Newegg, Sears, or any others not specified above

A Word About Certification Symbols

Not all electronics products are certified, but if they are they will carry a certification symbol on their packaging, and sometimes on the product itself. Here’s a guide to help you identify genuine certification symbols you may see on packaging. It’s just one more way you might be able to detect and avoid a counterfeit product.


UL

Underwriters Laboratories (UL)

UL certification is necessary in the United States and Canada if the product plugs directly into an AC outlet. Primarily the UL is concerned with the electrical safety of your product.

CE

Conformité Européenne (CE)

CE marking is required for the majority of products marketed in Europe.

USB

The Universal Serial Bus Implementers Forum (USB-IF)

(USB-IF) develops the standards and monitors compliance testing for product quality. The “SuperSpeed+” logo indicates USB-C with Power Delivery.

Bluetooth

Bluetooth

The Bluetooth logo is not technically a certification, but if a product is equipped with Bluetooth (either Classic or Low-Energy) the Bluetooth name and logo must appear on the product and its packaging.

Qi

Qi is the standard developed by the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) for wireless inductive charging. All of Scosche’s wireless charges for home and vehicle are Qi-certified and include Foreign Object Detection.

apple

Apple Inc.'s MFi Program
