Beware of cheap underperforming clones

As of 2022 there are many badly performing clones on the market. V2/3GHz NanoVNA uses parts like ADF4350 and AD8342 which are costly and clones have been cutting costs by using salvaged or reject parts.

See official store and look for V2 Plus4/V2 Plus4 Pro versions only to avoid getting a bad clone. We have stopped selling V2.2 versions since October 2020, so all V2 hardware that are not Plus or Plus4 are not made by us and we can not guarantee performance.

Do I have a genuine nanoVNA 2? #clones

I have a nanoVNA 2, but I do not know whether it is genuine.

How may I determine, whether my nanoVNA 2 is genuine?

My nanoVNA 2 looks identical to the nanoVNA V2.2 on the pictures. On the back of the PCB is written in the upper right corner (SMA connectors pointing up) "S-A-A" and below this "V2_2". It came in a card box with this on the label: "SKU39005-ky[OP" and "POA6988920". It is genuine or a clone?
