Knock-off chargers are everywhere around us, and many of us have fallen to purchasing such fake accessories because of the convenient price or availability. Therefore, if your purchased product is actually not of brand name, there is a high chance that the accompanying charger is not as well. First, look out for where the charger was made. In addition, pay attention to the material, texture and appearance of the charger. Knock-off chargers are usually subject to seams on the plastic and a smoother finish, so look out for those changes!
