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.

Since tindie have problem with checkout with me, I want to buy it on the other sites.
I am wondering that the NanoVNA v2 plus 4 that I found on AliExpress is whether clone or not.

Is it clone or not?

It´s seems just like a original one that i buy a year or some...  when i receive it check the Serial Number...  Are you trying to buy from Guatemala?

All pictures seems to be from a original product, on AliExpress are various resellers that offer original ones...   Just wish you to have lucky to buy a original one...  Until you get the device on hands you can check the serial number here on the page group...  Sorry about you can´t buy from Tindie "directly"...
