First of all, when it comes to charger, I don’t buy aftermarket or those sold for $5 off gas station. Why? Because I know the quality is not up the requirement. Working and fixing on electronic devices, I know how important it is to take care of Power IC. Any other components can be replaced or repaired, but power IC is something that cannot be easily repaired.

Anyway, I found very interesting article about original charger vs counterfeit so I wanted to share with you.

Here is the original link of the post

from outside, it looks very identical.

the one on left is original. Counterfeit has smaller capacitors and less components just enough to flow the electricity.

Original will flow 10W as specification, counterfeit flows 5.9W. Which makes charging time longer.

Choice is yours but would you be willing to play with these cheap counterfeit product with your $500+ devices?
