Bought from aliexpress  here https://www.aliexpress.com/item/SAMSUNG-100-Original-Genuine-Qi-Fast-Wireless-Charger-for-SAMSUNG-GALAXY-S8-SM-G950U-SM-G9508/32825352941.html

 

 

 

I believe its a fake charger, its a very good copy of the original visually, if you dont have a original one as i do, you likely wouldn't know from a visual inspection of the unit itself,

 

the box itself could have been perfect but some silly typos.

 

 

 

weighing the charger, there is also a 25gram weight difference between the original and this aliexpress one

 

 

 

Didnt bother to even try it, not interested in using a copy.

 

 

 

10$ Shipped NZ Wide excl Rural.  As is.

It's almost like they put typos in these things so you can tell them apart lol. So much attention to detail, and then typos?! Bah ha.

maybe the dude who makes the labels has some sense of right and wrong and did them all on purpose, because as you said

 

i dont know how you can pay so much attention to the box itself and the actual unit, and not get the spelling right

 

heres some examples.

If its like an earlier fake clone samsung wireless charger I got off aliexpress, it will "work" for a suitably slow definition of working.

 

Hope you did a refund on aliex for this obvious fake.

I finally got a few minutes to "have a play".

 

To be fair to the person putting it together, I've seen a lot worse soldering, etc (although, obviously, I've also seen a lot better):

and it does have the 3 coils:

It even managed to start charging my phone, but I wasn't willing to leave it on long enough to see how hot it got, etc.

 

A couple of other pics for those that are interested:
