How to tell if you have a fake iPhone cable or charger

HOW TO TELL IF YOU HAVE A FAKE IPHONE CABLE OR CHARGER

APPLE MADE HEADLINES RECENTLY WHEN IT SUED AN AMAZON SELLER OVER FAKE LIGHTNING CABLES. ACCORDING TO THE LAWSUIT FILED BY APPLE, THE COMPANY SPENT THE LAST NINE MONTHS BUYING IPHONE CABLES, CHARGERS AND DEVICES ON AMAZON. IT DETERMINED THAT “ALMOST 90 PERCENT” OF THOSE PRODUCTS ARE COUNTERFEIT IN SOME WAY.

If Apple’s claims are true, there’s a very good chance you have some fake iPhone accessories lying around your house. At worst, fake chargers can seriously damage your device and cause fires; at best, they’ll just last for less time than a real cable. Here’s how to tell the difference.

“An Apple Lightning to USB cable has “Designed by Apple in California” and either “Assembled in China,” “Assembled in Vietnam,” or “Indústria Brasileira” on the cable about seven inches from the USB connector. You’ll see a 12-digit serial number at the end of this text.”

As for the chargers, the most important thing is to verify the power that the charger is capable of. USB ports and chargers can put out varying amounts of power. The big iPad chargers are more powerful than the smaller iPhone chargers, for example. Using a charger that’s underpowered will damage your battery life and charge your phone more slowly, so it’s always best to buy a charger that provides the maximum for USB: 5 volts, 2.1 amps.
