The counterfeit AirPods Pro advanced version disassembles the family photo.

summary:

Through disassembly, we found that this so-called advanced version of the counterfeit AirPods Pro compared to the previous version of the counterfeit AirPods Pro, just did not use rubber mud counterweight inside the charging box, and equipped with a so-called Qualcomm chip , in addition, the two versions of the counterfeit version in the shape of the design, internal workmanship, layout construction, Component models are not largely different, even in an assembly workshop produced with the same mold. This advanced version of the most shocking is  pass charging box internal lithium battery attached to a weight-for-weight iron block, this is really a dangerous layout! It’s not too much to say its a bombs! AirPods Pro is powerful and expensive, and for most consumers it’s not just a product in need, but we as consumers should still support the genuine when we choose to buy AirPods Pro, and take a step back and say that supporting other genuine TWS headsets is also better than buying counterfeit AirPods Pro strong!
