BEWARE OF BOGUS POWERHITTERS
The PowerHitter Company is getting fucked and the unscrupulous bastards who are manufacturing/selling them, are not only ripping off The PowerHitter Company BUT ALSO YOU by delivering an inferior product.
Fraud alert! We need your assistance, peoples! Over the past couple months we have uncovered several companies manufacturing counterfeit, knock-off PowerHitters ... and many stores, whom have either been duped into ordering and selling these fakes OR actively and consciously doing so.
Why should you care? These "so called PowerHitters" are sub-standard quality, made with inferior materials, and worst of all they are poorly performing imitations of our highly regarded products. The materials and design of authentic PowerHitters were highly researched and quantifiably proven not to melt, to retain their shape, and last a lifetime.
We’re working on shutting all of it down BUT it’s a cat and mouse game already – so any help from our friends PowerHitter Family would be greatly appreciated.
HOW TO SPOT A FAKE
Does it sound too good to be true?
Whether you are browsing at your local head shop, through mobile apps or online, price can be one of the first indicators that your PowerHitter is fake. Counterfeits tend to be cheaper than the genuine brand so consumers should be wary of unusually low prices.
We are a premium product made to last a lifetime crafted by passionate fans of the original PowerHitter. Our sale prices are anywhere between $24.99 and $34.99.
We DO NOT recommend purchasing products from sites like Alibaba, Aliexpress, Wish dot com, DHGate, Ebay and Etsy. They are all flooded with counterfeits. Even Amazon is inundated with counterfeits. So, make sure when purchasing there -- you are doing so from the official PowerHitter Co. store by clicking here.
Something ain't right??
Counterfeits are always produced using cheap, poor quality materials such as stiffer plastic with potentially hazardous materials. If the item does not look or feel authentic, it isn’t.
Squeeze it. Is it hard to squeeze?
Crappy Plastic! The major difference between counterfeits and authentic PowerHitters is the quality it is manufactured with. All the counterfeits we’ve encountered are harder and less squishy than our Official PowerHitters. We also don’t know what the fakes are made from?! That said, our polymer has been tested as being flame retardant and is BPA free.
3.Packaging and Material
Wow this is shitty.
Inspecting your PowerHitter is another way to distinguish an original from a counterfeit. We invest in high quality materials so if you find your PowerHitter leaks smoke, or appears to be cheap hard plastic then it should be a warning sign.
Any products which come without a scratch off serial number are definitely fake. Our registration sticker is only produced by us and not available with any counterfeits that we know of. Please register your PowerHitter for VIP access.
When you look at the bottom of a counterfeit PowerHitter it will have all pertinent information like the serial number and website address buffed out.
OFFICIAL COLORS OF THE POWERHITTER
To be clear, the ONLY official colorways we have manufactured are available in PowerHitter Eggplant, PowerHitter Navy Blue and (most recently) our Limited Edition in PowerHitter Pink (NOT available in stores!), PowerHitter Pink (it's slightly different than the Limited Edition Pink AND available in stores), PowerHitter Limited Edition Werewolf in brick red and PowerHitter Eggplant with Godzilla vs StayPuff.
Most counterfeits are made in colors we don't manufacture like these:
How else can you tell?
Bottom of hitter will have the serial number and website address buffed out.
The cap does not seal correctly, it leaks smoke preventing power hits.
The joint holder is smaller than our authentic PowerHitters.
Registration sticker is only produced by us and not available with any counterfeits (as far as we know).
The counterfeit PowerHitter Logo on the bottle does not show our “TM” on it. The white margins on the logo sticker are too wide. The gradient is not correct. Background half tone pattern in the cloud is not the same and the color is slightly off.
Counterfeit vs. Authentic PowerHitters
See the weak smoke stream and smoke escaping from the top which doesn't seal properly.
Super phat rips and no leakage!
