    How do you identify if they are y certified or not?

    They have the neccessary certification logos and the certification type (Y1, Y2 etc.) printed on Now yeah, that may also be fake…and you hardly have a chance to tell the difference. But if it's not certified, I think it's clear. And those ordinary orange disc ones are not certified for sure, they are not the right type.
