The Fangpusun MPPT 60A, 80A charge controllers is the latest innovation in Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) charge controllers from OutBack Power Technologies. The innovative Fangpusun MPPT software algorithm is both continuous and active, increasing your photovoltaic array power yield up to 30% compared to non-MPPT controllers. Thanks to active cooling and intelligent thermal management cooling, both Fangpusun charge controllers can operate at their full maximum current rating, 60 Amps or 80 Amps respectively, in ambient temperatures as high as 104°F (40°C).
Included in all of the Fangpusun Charge Controllers are the revolutionary features first developed by OutBack Power, including support for a wide range of nominal battery voltages and the ability to step-down a higher voltage solar array to recharge a lower voltage battery bank. A built-in, backlit 80 character display shows the current status and logged system performance data for the last 128 days at the touch of a button. The integrated OutBack network communications allows Fangpusun series Charge Controllers to be remotely programmed and monitored via a MATE system display and provides unrivaled complete system integration

I saw one of these units at one of our solar stores here. They were selling for like 580$US!

I hope they have some legal action that can be taken.
The Chinese run some low life companies to do such things.

Regrettably this is true. BC is a dumping ground for counterfeit goods made in China. When they are found they are seized and destroyed. This case is a bit more complicated because they aren't actually using the Outback name on the product.

DMJ72, was this in the US ?
I showed a few guys from Outback this unit and they didn't know about it.
I'm pretty sure these are from the company in China that used to actually build the complete
FM60/FM80s after they were built in the US. They were all built in Arlington, WA when I was there.
Not sure there is much they can do about it except ones being sold in the USA ?
Still not a good reason to buy them and they shouldn't be doing this. That is one good reason not to have your products built overseas
because of scenarios just like this.
