There are many copycat power adapters on the market, but they are not the biggest problem for consumers, because although the quality of copycat power adapters is poor, the price is also cheap, and people are still relatively easy to distinguish. The more harmful is the fake power adapter products. They not only deceive consumers, but also bring many bad influences to us regular and old-fashioned power adapter manufacturers. So how to tell the fake power adapter?
a. Observe the brand logo. Fake power adapter nameplates are often blurred and not very clear, and the difference can be seen by comparison.
b. Shell color and process. The shell of the original adapter has better manufacturing process, clear stripes and texture, while the counterfeit product will have a rough feeling, which can be seen not only with the naked eye but also with the touch of the hand.
d. Differences in power cord sockets. The power cord socket part of the adapter is also significantly different from genuine and fake products. The material and color of the square-shaped engineering plastic around the genuine socket are basically the same as other parts of the shell, while the fake one is very different. The fake one is obviously left behind due to poor workmanship around this piece of engineering plastic. There are also many burrs at the junction of the output power cord and the power adapter.
e. Weight. Because the components selected for the internal circuit cut corners, the weight of the counterfeit adapter is lighter than that of the real one
A large number of counterfeit power adapters on the market are mostly made by illegal manufacturers. The internal circuits of these counterfeit power adapters cut corners, such as switching tubes with lower power and low cost, reducing the capacity of the filter capacitors, and adopting poor performance. Resistor-capacitance components, etc., the overall workmanship is not fine, and the internal circuit welding is also rough. Because the internal materials are not in place, after some power adapters are used for a period of time, the shell will blister due to internal overheating, which seriously endangers the safety of consumers. Power adapter manufacturers suggest that if you find that the power adapter you have purchased is counterfeit, you must stop using it.
