Two things come to mind....

Who the hell is Excelvan, and will they be around long enough to honor such a warranty?
Why does it look so much like a Corsair PSU with strange stickers on it?

I looked at the labelling for the unit and that unit is for sure a fake which is probably rated to 500W max, never mind the fact that the unit has a fake 80+ platinum sticker on it (as it actually has 80% efficiency marked on it instead). If this unit actually makes it to 80% efficiency, I'll be impressed. The advertising material has the NTC thermistor's role down incorrectly, as it is there to lower inrush current coming into the PSU and protect the house wiring rather than save the unit from a short circuit (which is why you have a chip which manages all the protections like short circuit, over power, over voltage etc) and then there's this gem...

Active PFC Line:with the capacity of anti-jamming.
Who the hell is going to be jamming your power supply and with what?

I think TPU should have a patreon so we can get sketchy af stuff and have someone review it. Of course wear but protection because no one likes toasted nuts.

10 year warranty but I wonder if you'll get good support. If it explodes and takes everything connected to it with it, good luck having those replaced.
