hi all, ok in my attempt to save a few bucks here and there i recently bought some aftermarket chargers/usb cables/headphones set for my iphone off of craigslist. the first thing i would like to say is if you can dont buy these products. i should have known better and am lucky that i didnt damage my phone with the chargers.
here is my question im trying to seperate whats real and whats fake and i have found out how to tell which headphones and adapters are fake but im having a hard time with the usb cable.
does anyone know the tell tale difference in a fake usb cable dock connecter? the ones i have say " designed by apple in CA" however with the 3 cables i have 2 say that toward the "pin end" and one says that near the "usb end"
so im confused, and its obviously my fault, any insight would be appreciated so i can junk these. can someone confirm for me at what end the writing should be on and if there are any other ways to tell....
btw here is a great link to spotting fake adapters....
ty tamara. i should have been more clear in the sense of buying accessories that "look like" apple ones. still i would like to sort out the real from the fake and cant seem to spot the difference on the cables. thanks for the reply!
what im trying to determine is of the cables i have in front of me -minus the packaging, which ones are real and which ones arent... and if there is a way to determine that. sorry for the waste of bandwidth. but yes i know the obvious. thanks!
