The expert pointed out that the cable and power supply unit to replenish the smartphone's charge must be original and have the necessary certificates confirming their quality. If you use third-party chargers, you can damage the smartphone connector or even disable it. For example, if a power surge occurs, the likelihood of fire increases. In non-original accessories, components of poor quality are used, they also wear out more rapidly.
When choosing a cord, you need to pay attention to the inscriptions, braid, serial number, place of production. As for the power supply, it must be well assembled, not have gaps or streaks on the metal parts, writes “Prime”. Gritsenko also warned against buying chargers in stores, where they are offered at a price significantly lower than in official outlets.
