I Tested FAKE Gel Blaster Surge and Compare It To The Real GB Surge Gel Ball Blaster Like Splatrball

Let's see if this Gel Blaster Surge FAKE COPY is as good as the real thing. I'm naming it the SCOURGE. Watch this:


I don't promote buying knock-off designed products. It hurts the inventor and confuses and disappoints the consumer. I bought this simply to test and prove why you should buy the real thing.


First of all, the real SURGE is not much more expensive, only about $10 more. It's not worth the price difference to buy the fake SCOURGE. The one advantage of the SCOURGE is the removable battery.

They are similar. I've played using the Fake SCOURGE against friends using the real SURGE. The slightly lower FPS of the Fake Surge meant that they could shoot further and hit me when I could not even reach them. Also, I have to use hardened gels, otherwise, it smashes a lot of the stock gels. I prefer the replaceable battery of the fake one, but I don't like to support fake products, so I would not buy more of these. It's not much cheaper and not as good.

The SURGE uses a gearbox-driven piston that is a typical design of gel blasters and airsoft. It is the same gearbox uses in the popular STD M1911. All the gears, piston, piston housing, and inner barrel are plastic. The motor is not a standard size that I could find. The motor is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. Although this battery is not easily accessible, it uses a common connector, so it could be easily changed if it died completely. The circuit board charges the Li-ion battery through a USB C connector. Power to the motor is directly controlled by a micro switch.


The battery dimensions are 46.5 x 21.3 x 11.7 mm. The connector appears to be a JST-PH2 which are 2mm pitch vs the commonly used in RC Hobby JST-XH which are 2.54mm pitch (0.1"). JST-PH2 connectors can be identified by the single straight guide on the front, vs the JST-XH connectors have 2 barb-shaped guides on the front. A battery like this with the JST-PH2 connectors is less common. Also most 500mah 2s Lipo batteries for RC seem to be ~55mm x 30mm x 14mm which is a little bit larger, and will be a tight squeeze or require some trimming of plastic between the PCB and motor to fit. That makes me wonder if the 500mah rating on the Gel Blaster battery is true. The size appears to be more similar to 400mah batteries.

This is the closest battery I've found with the same size JST-PH2 (E-flite micro connector) connector. Dimensions: 48x29x11mm The wire looks shorter though, so not sure how well it will reach.
