Who cares. There UL listed, that's all that counts these days
You enjoy those. I'll stick to the real thing.

Same thing as when an old boss of mine years ago bought a case of CHEAP CRAP Chinese GFIs for like $3/ea. He said the same thing as you, but they were the WORST and many of them failed.

I used to use a ton of Ideal Tan Twisters, but now that I've been using 3M tan/reds and org/blus, I'm not going back if I can help it. Those things are the tits.

On one hand you have well made, works as intended and last for years. On the other hand...not.
