Tiny, cheap, and dangerous: Inside a (fake) iPhone charger

Ken Shirriff:

It’s amazing that manufacturers can build and sell a complex charger for just a few dollars. It looks a lot like a genuine Apple charger and cost a lot less. But looking inside, I found that important safety corners were cut, which could lead to a 340 volt surprise. In addition, the interference from a cheap charger like this can cause touchscreen malfunctions. Thus, I recommend spending a few dollars more to get a brand-name charger.

Penjelasan yang sangat lengkap tentang bahaya menggunakan charger iPhone palsu/murahan. Bagi Anda yang menyayangi iDevice Anda, jangan pernah membeli charger palsu. Selain berpengaruh ke baterai, juga akan berpengaruh ke touchscreen nya langsung.


My real samsung charger messes up the touchscreen to the point that I cant use drawsomething when plugged in. Not just cheap adapters do it.
