How to spot a FAKE JBL CHARGE 3/JBL Charge 3 unboxing

So I ordered a JBL Charge 3 off ebay for $120, and when it was delivered I realized it was a fake. So I went out and bought a real one from a retailer, and quickly made this video showing the big differences.

Read the seller ratings on ebay before buying, and remember that if the price is too low something is probably wrong.

Also the led on the real one’s power and JBL connect is white, and the fake’s is blue.
