Genuine charger for 1/6 the Apple price

 April 4, 2011
By L. F. Smith
This charger costs an astounding $30 if you buy it from the Apple web store! Maybe Apple dips it in gold or something, but there’s no reason to pay $30 for it when you can get it for about $5, is there?

After I got this, I looked it over very carefully, comparing it to one a friend got from Apple. This is either the real deal, or it’s the best knock-off ever made. It has the same markings and numbers as the original.

Bottom line: It works, and it’s much, MUCH cheaper than it is from Apple. If you want a charger, buy this one.

————————–

Update 2/08/2012: Obviously, a large number of reviewers have had very different experiences with their chargers than I’ve had with mine. This may be the reason: When I bought my charger, there was only one supplier. Now, there are several. My assumption is that the supplier I bought from (and sorry, but I can’t remember the name) was selling the real deal, but some of the current suppliers are indeed selling inferior knockoffs. I based my review on my personal experience at that time.

I guess there’s an additional bottom line: Buyer beware.

"original apple" ?

The vendor of this charger can get away with calling it original apple because apparently “Original Apple” is the name of their company. This is not the Steve Jobs Nano charger although they have counterfeited it rather well. Nevertheless it seems to work okay and has pretty decent build quality. I’ll be back to edit this review if it doesn’t last. On the other hand, I’d probably just buy another since the return shipping is more than the initial cost.
