How To Differentiate Between Original And Fake Charger And USB Cables



It is no longer news that when a popular brand launches a product, other manufacturers duplicate it and sell it in the market. These types of products usually don’t last and are also harmful. Fake chargers and USB cable usually look like the original ones. The charger may work like an original one but it may damage your gadgets.

Now how do you differentiate?

There are some points to differentiate original vs fake charger.

Often times, after charging 2-3 times with the fake charger, it becomes hotter than normal.

In some cases, the charger is original, but the USB charging cable is fake. You can identify using the port size and colour. The port color of the duplicate one is darker than the original one, and also it is a little bit longer.
