STOMPer FakePhilips is concerned about the sale of this counterfeit electrical test pen at local hardware stores. He says it is dangerous to use these fake electrical devices.
Electrical test pens are used to detect the presence of electrical supply, especially in power sockets.
Said the STOMPer:
"I have to highlight this fake Philips test pen to the public.
"These pens are sold as the real thing in hardware stores, sometimes at the price of the original ($2.50).
"The real ones come in standard Philips packaging, but the fake ones are usually in a transparent cover.
"The fake logo has two lines of waves and smudged stars, with the words 'Made in Gamany' on the handle.
"The real one should say 'Made In Germany' and its logo consisting of 3 lines of waves and sharp sparkling stars.
"Fake electrical test pens are dangerous to use.
"Please refrain from buying them."
