Beware of cheap underperforming clones

As of 2023 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.

Is AURSINC selling authentic V2 Plus4 hardware? #clones

Hi! I'm interested in buying a NanoVNA V2 Plus4. I'd buy it from Tindie but it's out of stock there.

There's an Amazon store called Aursinc that's selling it ( ). The original NanoVNA lists them as an authorized reseller ( ), but are they also selling authentic NanoRFE hardware?

Hi, only the V2 Plus4 option on that listing is genuine, everything else in that store are clones, which is why we don't advise people to buy from Amazon.

Please be aware that nanovna .com is not owned by the original developers or either V1 or V2 NanoVNA, and all products linked from that site are clones. The V1 NanoVNA developer, edy555, only sells his products on Switch Science.

Seems also to be unavailable on amazon.

Hi, our official Tindie store will reopen by the end of this month, you can add your email to the waitlist here to be notified when we reopen:

Thanks very much for the feedback. I just didn't realize nanovna .com itself is a clone site! I went ahead and bought the Plus4 which hopefully is authentic at your advice.

It still shows 9 in stock for me at the URL in my message above.
