HIGH QUALITY AND SAFE: Phones and devices can be quite expensive, so we kept that in mind when we designed this charger.
Our chargers have a built in multi-protection system that ensures the safety of your devices.
This system includes a heat-sink, so your phone won't overheat while charging.
Well thank goodness for that!

It is amazing how much people are willing to risk just to save a few bucks on a "deal". Just hope they have a lot of property insurance. When you buy these products they have no certification marks of any kind - WHAT SO EVER. (UL/CSA/ETL/CE/EMC) Just scary to think about it.

Some imports have the CCC certification (China Compulsory Certificate) but not all. Some of these chargers have none. Just a fancy packaging, but no details/meat.

Some folks like to live life on the edge, I suppose.

I'm getting $20 of Amazon services instead of $1 digital credit for no rush. I haven't been offered digital credit for some time now. Anybody know how Amazon determines what to offer you?

From the pics I see it has CE and FCC certs. Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever seen one without certs. I also have a Lumsing battery pack that I've been satisfied with.

Maybe it's a sign to tell you to stay away from junk, fake reviewed chargers. Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

I love this review:

The first time I plugged it it sparked now one of the USB ports does not work. Still sparks once in awhile when plugging it in

Fakespot reference for a $6 usb charger deal? It's a desktop charger, nothing more, nothing less, with some pretty nice specs for $6, likely manufactured from the same Chinese factories that produce the more "popular" chargers you may be alluding to. $6 and a 1 year warranty with Amazon Prime a charger with these specs is pretty decent imo.

You need to cross check their registration numbers with those on file with FCC/CE. Sometimes even the registration numbers are just copied (from similar products) but different manufacturers. The amount of fakes/refurbished/manufacturing rejects on the market (Amazon/eBay/and even B&M stores) is just scary.

Yes. That $6 charger you are going to use in order to charge a $200+ phone or tablet. There is such a thing as a device being too cheap, which implies they've cut corners somewhere; most likely in safety mechanisms to handle various electrical scenarios. I am sure for many, these will work just fine - but I would rather pay an extra $10-20 knowing a device has an OEM/distributor with established reputation and proper external reviews (Benson testing, etc).

Make that sale, OP ! woot

(FYI: including fake facts like a "1 year warranty with Amazon Prime" though won't help your case).

Retail is $30 which is about average for chargers with these specs. Apparently these are on sale/discount to promote or unload stock, just as countless other deals that appear daily on bargain forums like SD.
