This is becoming a very common phenomenon. Chinese manufacturers are copying quality products from the US, Japan, and others, and producing, uh well, junk or near junk.
I follow an internet group devoted to the installation and repair of emergency vehicle lighting and electronic systems, and we are seeing nearly every good American made product being poorly copied and sold at very low prices. We call them "knockoff's." Quality is very low. Failure rates are extremely high. Repair/replace is non-existant. They claim warranty, but it's virtually impossible to get warranty service when the seller is in Hong Kong.
Based on the experiences reported in that forum, I am VERY leery of low priced Chinese made products that claim to compete with well known brand name items such as Yamaha, Honda, Whelen, Federal Signal and others. For me, this pretty much applies to any kind of product be it generators, LED flashing light systems, sirens, or whatever.
