According to Livolo, unless you buy from them, cheaper devices may be fake, and dangerous to use.

If you buy from Livoloeurope.eu, you can a pay a lot more than Ali-Express prices.
I guess what has happened here is that Livoloeurope outsourced the manufacturing, handing over their designs, to a Chinese company and that Chinese company has now done the dirty on them and started selling the stuff also direct to customers (who prefer not to pay wildly inflated prices) instead of, as agreed, through Livoloeurope.
I'd also say that the definition of 'fake' here is that the manufacturer has breached an agreement to sell only to Livoloeurope and that the specification (including safety aspects) is identical to the original (anyway manufactured in China) product.
