These are not genuine. Why no blister pack? See other threads.

I can only see one thread where one person claimed the chargers they received were fakes. The other post said they maybe fake due to no blister pack.

I have bought a genuine one of these from apple store and it never came in a blister pack just a standard box. highly doubt these are genuine though

best way to check is look for a serial number inside the usb port on the plug, gotta have good eyesight though as its tiny lol

5W at 5v is 1 amp, thought everyone was looking for at least 2 amps these day's.

Depends on what you are using it for I guess, probably not suited for tablets. I use mine for the Pi B and is very stable.

You know this for sure???

Tell you what I...
Say I sold some Chinese c.. And said it is genuine .
A few hindered sold cash
New company
Regulations need to be harsh ,but the fake sellers pay no tax and are gone

Have you bought one from them then?

7dayshop have been around forever, never had a problem with anything I bought from them. If they say its genuine I believe them. But I agree 1A is not enough for a Pi.

Conversely I've bought from them twice over the past couple of years and both "genuine" items were clearly fakes and sub-standard. Luckily for me they refunded me both times but I wouldn't take the chance again!

not genuine.
beware. some fake apple chargers do not get the voltage right and can damage you device

The iPhone only draws the power it needs. If the input is too low it says not compatible and rejects it; if input is high it just draws the amount it needs. You have more chance of the non genuine plug setting on fire than you do of it damaging your device.

Don't forget Apple's new 5w charger has folding pins so I would hazard a guess at a warehouse clearance

There is a big difference between voltage and current draw. A voltage over the designed input voltage can fry components. A poorly regulated voltage source due to bad components or design is a risk. Charging LiPo batteries with an out of spec charger can result in cell failure and even fires.

Fake! Returned mine for refund. That said they certainly have the look and feel of the real thing. Bug I'd rather not risk it

Because I have the genuine version.

That's what I meant (I just didn't know how to correctly explain it).
Many fake Apple chargers lead to over heating and (as you said) can cause fires and product damage.

Recommend 2amp for performance and usb drain avoidance…

So you don't have one from 7 Day Shop? That's my point. You don't know it's not genuine! Why comment if you don't know???
