    Hi there.

    I have been reading up on these fake chargers and batteries after the hoverboard incidents, and I must say that this particular item is not the original however it is safe enough to use. I had a look at the circuit board and the capacitors and the resistors look fine and this indicates to me that the likelihood of something like the exploding or causing any other issue is incredibly small.

    You looked at this item? I don't believe you to be honest. And again I suggest you don't ask for ratings - it's against the rules.

    Edit - to be clear I am doubting looking at pictures of internals is conclusive unless you have opened genuine chargers of the same make and model. If you have for this one then fair enough.
