5 easy ways to tell if a PopSocket is fake or authentic

PopSockets are taking the world by storm! Touted as the next big thing for smartphones, these fashionably functional accessories are witnessing unprecedented growth in popularity. Their success however, has also given rise to the unauthorized selling of cheap knock-offs and poor-quality counterfeits that your brand would want to avoid at all costs. These fakes are not only illegally manufactured, but also lack the utility of a genuine PopSocket in terms of the right grip, hold, and long-lasting durability.
