App-Tronics Stealth Interceptor Laser Jammer – Scam Alert!
Are you considering spending over $1295 on the new App-Tronics 2300is Stealth Interceptor laser jammer?
If you are then I suggest that you read this review first, so you don’t get scammed out of your hard earned cash!
I first learned about App-Tronic’s and their recent entry into the speed counter measurement industry today as I walked past their booth at the annual Las Vegas SEMA show and saw they were promoting a product they call the Stealth Interceptor Laser Jammer.
Well this peaked my curiosity as I knew that Cliff Crane, the president of Laser Interceptor, had trademarked his companies name a number of years ago and I felt that this was a blatant infringement on his companies trademark.
So I walked into their booth and began checking out App-Tronic’s 2300is Stealth Interceptor.
I then spent a few minutes reading some of the literature App-Tronic’s had for their product.
Some of the more notable features they listed were:
- All in one X, K, Ka, Ku radar detector and laser diffuser
- GPS capabilities using Google Maps
- SmartNav digital recorder
- Red light and speed camera warning system
- The ONLY laser jammer that can defeat the LTI TrueCam laser gun
I then spent some time examining the unit they had on display.
The controller’s LCD screen had some text displayed in blue that I was unable to read because of its small size and color.
The two laser jammer heads were strikingly similar to Laser Interceptor’s head and the radar detector antenna was very similar in appearance to Escort’s 9500ci’s antenna.
At this same time one of App-Tronic’s reps was explaining the features of their jammer to another show attendee who asked what the two level devices inserted into the jammer were for.
I about crapped my pants when the rep replied, “It’s so the jammer heads look good on the front of the car” (the purpose is to level the heads for performance factors).
I then introduced myself to Craig Collens, the CFO, asking if he could tell me a little bit about his company and his new laser jammer.
Craig related that he started his company because Escort, Blinder and Laser Interceptor just “didn’t get it” and they wanted to have a product that was superior to all the other radar detectors and jammers out there today.
I then asked him how he was getting around both Blinder’s US Patent on laser jammers and on Escort’s patent on inclusion of GPS into radar detectors.
At this point he looked at me with a bewildered look asking, “We need a patent?”
My Thoughts About App-Tronics and their Stealth Interceptor
It was evident to me that App-Tronic’s spent a lot of money and time in putting together an awesome booth at this year’s SEMA convention. However my gut tells me that their money would have been better spent doing research and development rather then rip off and duplicate other companies intellectual properties.
Mark my words, it is just a matter of time before Mr. Collens and his investors get legal notice and sued for a bunch of cash and shut down by one of those companies he feels “just don’t get it” because I know they do..
