The PowerHitter Company is getting fucked and the unscrupulous fucks whom are manufacturing, as well as those 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 more than several stores, whom have either been duped into ordering and selling these fakes OR actively and consciously doing so.
Why should you care? These "PowerHitters" are sub-standard quality, made with inferior materials, and worst of all - poorly performing imitations of our high standards. The materials and design of the bottle were highly researched and quantifiably proven to not 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 – and 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 shopping at your local 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.
Check the advertised price against the recommended retail price of the brand – what might seems like a bargain could leave you with poor quality imitation. 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, Wish.com or DHGate. They are flooded with counterfeits.
Something ain't right??
Counterfeits are almost always produced using cheaper, poor quality materials such as stiffer plastic materials with potentially hazardous materials. If the item does not look or feel authentic, it likely isn’t.
Squeeze it. Is it hard to squeeze?
Crappy Plastic! Major difference between counterfeit hitters and the real PowerHitter is the material it is made from.
All the counterfeits we’ve encountered are harder and less squishy than our Official PowerHitters.
One of the major (and most concerning) differences between phony hitters and the real Official PowerHitter is how it’s made.
We just don’t know what the fakes are made from?! That said, our polymer has been tested as being flame retardant and is BPA free.
Squeeze ability “shore hardness” is hard with counterfeit and does not allow for even burn and is potentially harmful. We don't use inferior materials.
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 could be a warning sign.
And items which come without a scratch off serial number are definitely fake. Registration sticker is only produced by us and not available with the counterfeit. Please register your PowerHitter for VIP access.
When you look at the bottom of a fake PowerHitter it will have the serial number and website address is buffed out. We will show you some pictures of what lengths these crooks took in make these knock offs.
OFFICIAL COLORS OF THE POWERHITTER
To be clear, the ONLY official colorways we have manufactured are available in PowerHitter Purple, PowerHitter Blue and (most recently) our Limited Edition in PowerHitter Pink … which is NOT available in stores! So, all the counterfeits featured in this post are simple and easily detectable at a glance.
LIMITED EDITION PINK
Any other color is a fake PowerHitter.
How else can I tell?
Bottom of hitter will have the serial number and website address is buffed out. If you look closely you can still kind of see it.
The cap is not correct. It is not sized correctly, does not seal to the PowerHitter bottle and leaks smoke.
It leaks smoke preventing power hits because the washer for cap is not as thick as the original so it doesn’t seal correctly.
The joint holder mouth (insertion) is smaller than our 2019 version and is overall loosely based on our 2019 version.
Registration sticker is only produced by us and not available with the counterfeit.
The sticker on the bottle will not have or “TM” on it. The margins are wider on the outer sticker (white margin). PowerHitter lettering is slightly larger, and the gradient is not correct. Background half tone pattern in the cloud is not the same and the color is slightly off.
