    They look like absolute rip off copies of other well known brands, the grey and black cased model at around the £600 mark looks identical to a webasto, the round one with the tank looks very similar to either the very old eberspachers or the later Mikuni MY18's. I think I would rather stick to what I know, as has been said do these meet EU regulations or carry the CE mark etc , at the moment they are a bit of an unknow quantity, at least I know the Eberspachers and Mikuni heaters that I use and fit are safe and spares are readily available.

    According to here : http://tinyurl.com/d8hft89 , the seller states :

    CE CERTIFIED MANUFACTURED BY AN ISO9001 COMPANY WITH 20 YRS EXPERIENCE ....... Think I would be asking for complete confirmationand irrevocable proof of certification

    I also noted that they only supply a mobile phone number and a hotmail email address in the contact us section on the website.

    Most companys self certificate. In theory you should hold a technical file that shows how the item conforms. In pratice this is not always the case.
    A lot of the regs are also open to interpitation.
    So prrof would mean very little.
