Reconyx is made in the US and very expensive, the other US brand names are probably all made in China or similar countries under US name. Once the technology is in China it will be re-branded and possibly just as good, but you never really know. Their own QC is definitely not as good as the US requires them to be for our brands. I spent a career in electronics automated manufacturing and been to China quite a few times. At one point we moved our own manufacturing there but it didn't work out as there were too many quality issues, after a few years we brought it back to the US. The US labels will have tighter control but the Chinese brands may be good enough. When you drive in the manufacturing areas it seems you are actually in the US because literally every factory, one after the other, is a US name.
