Amazon is selling counterfeit products. I just learned this hard lesson.
When I purchased cheaper chargers and cables for my iPhones and iPads, even though they said they were Apple certified and in one case it said it was made by Apple, none of them worked longer than a month.
I went back and looked at reviews and even on 4 star + products I saw the counterfeit reports and evidence. All those glowing reviews were probably fake.
Just spent $80 on a 12W charger and 2 1-meter cables at the Apple store. They work great. Just expensive.
Don’t learn the hard way!
