    I'm worried that I've got a fake AceKard 2i. The reason being that it did not come with a card reader, just an empty space were it should be, and I ordered it from Gamekool and only realised now that they were on the list of 'not recommended' online retailers. Any advice on how to check if my card is fake?

    Okay thanks. Just out of interest, why does the packaging have the space for the reader if they don't include it? Are they just saving money using packaging from previous models or something?

    Acekard 2i has a extra chip below the sticker, so you'll notice it if it's missing. My card came in a box with a tiny card reader, but your probably got lost when they checked it for faults. It's worth like $2 so whatever The card you buy probably will come with one.
