Cheap non genuine mains chargers
Writing about an offer on a cheap USB mains charger yesterday reminded me of the picture below I saw last year. Buying mains chargers from an unknown source means you could be buying something that has been badly designed and built with substandard components. For the sake of a few pounds they are just not worth the risk.
WARNING…I bought a iphone 5 charger from Amazon, first time I plugged in and switched on it blew up. pic.twitter.com/UOP8EVpwqp
