WOW Genuine eh? I wonder if they fell out of the back of a truck or something ... the pics looks good though!

 

Anyone with experience on this sort of deal?

@Batman I was thinking the same thing, I'm tempted although I've been burnt with third-party Apple accessories that just stopped working.

From a genuine Chinese factory or another knock-off Chinese factory?

IME with cheap counterfiet chargers and other ones I have seen with gear from aliex etc, the more they spend on the case looking nice the worse the guts of it are. Ones that have nice glossy perfect replicas seem to be some of the worst for not even able to hold over 5v at 500mA despite 2.1A labels, and also dodgey construction with stuff all clearance between the 300+ vdc of rectified mains and the extra low voltage side.

 

See bigclives videos on youtube where he also pulls apart the transformers of some which are basically leaving your safety to a couple of layers of varnish on the transformer windings which have been moved and flexed around and are subject to vibrations etc. I am surprised that more people don't light themselves up on the crap chargers around the place.

 

At least make sure you've got an RCD upstream of any of the cheap crap you buy.
