How to Spot Fake Power Adapters
Jul 05, 2018




Spotting a fake power adapter is a bit harder to do than a cable, and Apple doesn’t have a detailed page on it.

Of course, the first thing to look out for is any differences between an official power brick and the counterfeit brick. These should be pretty apparent.

Build and material quality and construction are also factors. You shouldn’t be able to rip off any casing or remove the power prongs by hand.

Perhaps the most telling difference is the text present on the back of the power adapter. Look for typos — which are incredibly common on cheap knockoffs.

Official adapters say “Designed by Apple in California.” If it doesn’t say that, or if it’s not spelled correctly, then it’s a fake. You should double-check the other text present, too.
