    tomcat, do you find this product at least a bit suspicious then? Like why are those sellers selling it on ebay? Is it to arbitrage? But there is very little room to make money since you had to pay like 80-90 dollars for one of these.

    If you don't believe that its the same goods which come in your countries box,
    Then return it to Amazon along with your reasoning.
    I have had good service from Amazon when I returned an Item, they sent me a replacement
    over night delivery . No hassle at all.
    So you are saying this was meant for Argentina right and amazon just bought a batch from them to sell it on amazon.com to us customers?


    Well i have no issue returning it... am strongly considerting it.. but if i asked for replacement, im sure box will be the same. But it just seem weird receiving an item like this saying from argentina use only. Again if the box was same box i got from dell, i would not think anything of this.

    1) If you don't trust them, don't buy it.

    2) Don't know.

    3) See 2) above.

    Honestly, nothing anybody is going to say can and/or will convince you to do anything you do not want to do, or convince you to do something you should do, or advise sufficiently to help you tell the difference.

    Return it.

    Buy one from Dell who reassured you you will get the exact same thing you want.

    Now can you stop with all the repeat questions ?

    Yea i most likely will.


    Well take a look at this listing on ebay.


    NEW DELL POWER COMPANION POWER BANK PW7015L R7CW8 BRAND NEW-NEVER USED | eBay


    This seller is advertising it brand new. I think it comes with original box. Now look at the price. $65. Many have been sold but its all private buyers. Would you buy from this? Something seems way off here as this is $65 and brand new. Of course you don't know if it comes with box or not. They are a computer part reseller though.

    Okay so i just bought this item from dell and received it earlier. It came in the same exact box as the one i received from amazon. It also has for argentina only as well.


    I thought how is that even possible.


    But when i look at that dell box and the one from amazon, it seems like the sticker with the serial number look more bold and darker than the one from amazon. Also they both came in like the same packaging, like it was put in a plastic open ziplock bag so to speak to fit the box in.


    I was planning to return the amazon box back but now looking at it, should i return it back to dell? I paid like 35 dollars more for the one from dell as oppose to amazon.


    I did notice the amazon box didn't look as new as the dell box though.


    Would you guys say return amazon one or dell one? Obviously if the dell one came with the same box like last time, its a no brainer. But now it being the same damn box... now im wondering if i should just keep the amazon one. I mean i still have a bit of worry with the amazon one but when same box... i dont think of it as much anymore.
