Just discovered that fake U2 UPMs have quietly entered the market.
Update 03/19/19 – Many fake U2s are sold from HIDANCE Official Store and ATORCH Innovative Manufactory Co., Store on AliExpress by far. AVOID!
Update 03/15/19 – The FW V5.5 will brick a fake U2.
Below I have made a picture to show how to identify the authenticity of U2.
A fake U2 comes with a serial number of 104083.
To be honest, the fake U2 doesn’t look too bad… But anyway double check yours.
You are welcome, good luck!
Received emails from visitors since this post was published. I after statistics found that many fake U2s were sold from HIDANCE Official Store and ATORCH Innovative Manufactory Co., Store on AliExpress by far. They began selling U2 clones in 2019. Even some of the video/text reviews provide the links to U2 clones…

A fake U2 will be bricked when upgrading to V5.5. The error message “104083 ERR” will appear on the screen. (R.I.P. 104083…)
