In November 2016, our client reported that some batteries installed in their UPS had lower battery capacity. We identified through investigations that those were counterfeit YUASA batteries.
It has been confirmed that a Chinese factory (Guangdong, China) produced counterfeit YUASA batteries and a distributor in Indonesia sold them.
Chinese custom added this Chinese factory to their blacklist on March 2017.
On March 2018, PT Santi Yoga (Jakarta, Indonesia), which is our official distributer, replaced counterfeit batteries in Indonesia to genuine batteries.
On April 2018, together with the Indonesian police, we finally destroyed 107 counterfeit batteries that Indonesian dealer stocked.
Please make sure to purchase our batteries directly from our authorized stores.
GS YUASA will take every possible legal enforcement to stop counterfeiters by cooperating with customs, police, and other organizations.
