Blaux HeatCore – Another Able Look Online Scam
Blaux is gaining online visibility at an alarming rate. The website started its e-commerce journey with its portable air conditioner, which has sold hundreds to consumers around the globe.
Blaux has two primary products – Mini AC And HeatCore Heater. Both units share many of the same features, including the following:
- Compact design
- Filtration system
- User-friendly interface
The main difference between the two units is functionality. The Blaux Portable AC functions as a cooling unit while the Blaux HeatCore functions as a warming unit.
The Blaux AC is priced at $89.99 per unit while the HeatCore is $20 less at $69.99 per unit. Blaux claims to see its products 50 to 51 percent below the retail price. Then there is the typical buy more to save more Blaux logic.
The Blaux website is owned and operated by Prestige Alliance Limited utilizing the address 48 Bi-State Plaza #617, Old Tappan, NJ 07675. It is unclear if the Blaux Prestige Alliance Limited is connected to the Prestige Alliance MPC located in Mandaluyong City Philippines.
A business search via the New Jersey Secretary of State website shows Prestige Alliance as a registered Limited Liability Company. The company registered with the state of New Jersey in March 2012.
Prestige Alliance Limited registered with the State of Delaware on June 26, 2020. The business filing is no longer active.
Nayzayerz began the checkout process utilizing PayPal. It appears the website utilizes a PayPal account under the name Quality Performance Limited Corporation.
A Google search revealed multiple Bizapedia complaints regarding non-deliveries and unauthorized charges.
Blaux.com was registered on February 24, 2019.
Blaux is not accredited by the BBB. However, it currently has a 1-star BBB rating with seven open complaints regarding non-deliveries, over-charges, and unauthorized credit card charges.
Afterword – Blaux HeatCore Scam
After public scrutiny, it appears Blaux has changed its name from Able Look Online to Quality Performance Limited Corporation, which is also racking up quite a scam reputation. Similar heaters are selling on AliExpress for $20.
Nayzayerz did an article a while back on the Blaux Portable AC, which was being sold by Able Look Online. The HeatCore is another product of Able Look Online. The ole switch and bait is just another attempt to scam more consumers.
If you are familiar with these products, you know they do not deliver on the manufacturer’s guarantees. In fact, Nayzayerz purchased a mini AC from Alibaba several months ago. We assumed it would be useless and it was useless. The internal components were nothing more than a computer fan and a paper-filter. It had two speed options, neither of which produced more air than the other.
We recommend staying clear of Blaux, Able Look Online, and Quality Performance Limited Corporation website. It is unlikely that Blaux is affiliated with Prestige Alliance MPC, a company based in the Philippines.
These scam artists are racking up thousands of dollars, taking advantage of vulnerable and unaware consumers. You can reach out to the FBI and FTC all you want, they refuse to step up to the plate.
Why buy from an official website when the Amazon Marketplace is at your disposal. The Marketplace is over-saturated with these junk products. Amazon has a tight hold on its customers, threatening their accounts if they request too many refunds. It is not even remotely possible that any consumer would be fully satisfied with these products.
It is important to note, we are not dealing with a legitimate company here. These are a group of international scam artists who utilize fake addresses, phone numbers, and other identifiable information. If you receive the pile of scrape, you can count yourself luckier than the hundreds of other buyers.

ordered 2 portable ac 2 weeks ago Have they beeen shipped
I doubt it, you may as well go ahead a file a chargeback because this is a scam website.
I purchased 3 AC units; they have given me multiple excuses as to why they have not arrived. I filed a complaint with the FTC, still waiting to hear a response. Now they are refusing to return my money; and then the back states I have to wait for 30 days. Meanwhile, as a older asthmatic, I am stuck in 102-105 weather without AC.
These are not air conditioners, they are integrated with a PC fan, nothing more. Blaux air conditioners are nothing more than a 6″ x 6″ box with a USB computer fan, no refrigerant, no freon, no nothing. The air is minimal at best. Tracking delayed is a sign the scam artists are not going to process your order. They are delaying action to allow enough time for the warranty expires. This pile of scrap will not cool a 4″ x 4″ square, let alone a small room.
