no i can get really skeptical on this area..
This is all purely skeptical remake from me here.
But EK figured if they nickle plated tainted copper, we would never find out.
The performance between to the two would also be very small that could be explained by plating of copper.
However if they assumed everything would be fine with the plating, it would be golden, and no one would of found out.
But the plating failed... and worse off, we see corrosion which couldn't happen to normal copper.
As i said this is purely skeptical... so dont take it as fact... but in short, i feel EK got caught.
Hence why all pure copper products dont suffer the same result as the plated products.
