The ICX360500 (InCharge for Xbox 360), ICWII200 (InCharge for Wii) controller charges have been forged by a Chinese company called Wellform Industrial Ltd. from Guangdong.

The counterfeit products bear falsified UL Marks for the United States and Canada and have not actually been verified by the UL for safety.

UL doesn’t know exactly when the fake products were made or how many were produced. They appear to be regularly sold on Amazon.com.

Blast reviewed the real charger late last year.
