Avoid Fake Apple Chargers
Trading Standards warns consumers
Trading Standards has handed out a big warning to consumers that fake chargers for Apple products could prove potentially fatal.
Almost all of the fake chargers gathered in an investigation, 99% of them, failed a basic safety test with just three of 400 fake chargers found to have sufficient “isolation” to protect users against electric shock. As part of a second operation targeting charity shops, antique dealers and second- hand shops, 15% of used electrical goods were also found to be non- compliant.
The message from all of this is clear: only use genuine Apple chargers.
