In this blog we will compare the Mercedes Benz C4 vs C5 china clone Multiplexers.
This should be a very short comparison The C5 is not really a C5 it’s just a C4 board inside a C5 shell and it does not fit well so the batteries are stuck dangling outside, its not worth a penny more than the C4 in fact due to the badly designed casing it’s worthless
it does not offer any advancement on the C4 whatsoever, it has been made by the chinese to dupe the unsuspecting buyer our advice is stay well away you are paying for a fancy metal box that is not all that fancy
Mercedes benz C5 original tools do offer an incremental advancement on the c4 but the china clone does not.
the clone C5 is often sold at a higher price yet it runs the same software
our conclusion is to stay away from it until there is a clone of the actual C5.
The following photos shows the inside of the C4 and the battery pack that has to be attached externally to the C5
