Fake Apple ipod / iphone charger

by on Mar.21, 2014, under Electronics

They almost got away with it. The attention to detail was sooo close…Yet so far away.
Here is an example of a official charger image taken from apple’s website.
This is what is on the bottom of the one I got for $0.99 at the local thrift store :D
Notice anything off?
Equipmnet? WTF is Equipmnet?
Check out the quality soldering job. Strange note: There are spaces for leds that were not installed…
total heap of shit quality on the build and design.
I laughed so hard when I saw this I almost fell off my chair.
Best $0.99 I have ever spent. Was definitely worth it for the laughs.
I would test further but i would rather not damage any of my usb devices, test equipment, or risk having the thing blow up in my face/ stinking up my lab.
