Real vs Fake Magsafe 2 Charger Macbook Pro.
How to spot a fake charger:
1) the text is darker on the fake charger
2) the manufacture is NOT Delta ot LiteON… such as dongguan samsung electro-mechanics.
At one point years ago, Samsung Electro Mechanics did manufacture chargers for apple for a very short time and was made available internationally only (outside the United States). So depending on how old your charger is and where it was purchases it could be real. This is why many modern fakes print that company on the Charger since it can be confusing as to whether or not it is real and so its one thing that is different than a real charger produced today so that they can produce and sell these fakes with a justification.
3) the sticker printed serial number located underneath the removable piece has thin text and the label color does not match the plastic
4) there is a lip around the female plug
5) slightly thicker cable and it is not as smooth as the real one
These knock-offs are getting very good. Most people would never be able to tell the difference because they wouldn’t even think to look.
This fake was purchased on amazon and happen to be one of the top rated. So please stay away from amazon and eBay. If you want an authentic charger make the purchase thru apple. It’s not worth risking your macbook over a fake charger.
