Unofficial, fake and damaged cables or plugs can damage iPhones, iPads
You can almost guarantee that any charging cable, wall plug, and car charger found at petrol stations, eBay or gift shops are cheap knock-offs of Apple’s products or the products of after-market manufacturers licensed by Apple.
For safe and speedy charging, your charger needs the appropriate circuitry, so it can recognize when your battery doesn’t need any more power. Without this function, your charger could seriously harm your battery or the device itself.
There are many reports that the cheap, non-genuine charging cable, plug can cause a fire.
We’ve heard many stories about exploding batteries caused serious burns and electric shocks.
Please bear in mind that unfortunately even though most sellers advertise their product as original apple products, the sad reality is that usually only one in a hundred of these claims are actually true. Because of this false advertising, countless users are under the impression that their accessories are genuine when in reality, they are unknowingly damaging their devices, causing £100’s in repair bills in some cases.
Don’t be a victim!
Please use genuine Apple charger plug, cable and good quality car charger.
