    They just told you WHY.

    What's not to like about their honesty?

    You should get the ones the clever Chinese make for rich Kalifornios.

    Those will keep the house cold with no power at all for partial-day rolling blackouts.

    One of the best you will find for that size-range plus great reserve is a MIL-surplus MEP-803A "tactically quiet" then. I've had mine for several years, now and love it.

    Could get SERIOUS anal as to "durable"?

    Onct tripped across a major Chinese mill touting their ability to supply M42 alloy in large, thick plate. Practically wallboard sized. Armoured drywall?

    Big, BRIGHT leaf-flake "crystals" is more often a sign of Electro-Galvanized, not hot-dipped.. which tends to be a VERY dull amorphous gray?

    There's the rub.

    So long as one doesn't look beyond the outer wear jacket of any multi-conductor cable, they can be VERY "deceiving"! 600-pair telco cable? Easy-peasy only because we always use...

    Quick'n dirty rings I've razor-sliced off Viton tubing.

    Flats, as suggested, one can do from sheet stock.

    Meah.. usta bee.. US wrench makers had sockets and such in 32ds and even 64ths that DID fit ... a "frenemy" of a 1959 Triumph TR3 my motivator for acquiring a select few of such goods.

    Look right decent.

    Coupla hundred bucks (or more) in freight is a barrier, EG: worth more to anyone close enough to simply come & fetch.
