Hi, i was wondering if you could help me. I purchased a 45w Samsung usb c travel charger and I am not sure if it is real or fake. It came in plain packaging so I now am a bit suspect. I have enclosed pictures to help.

 

Many Thanks

If it's brand new it will come in a Samsung branded box with an illustration of the charger on the outside.
If you didn't get it from a recognised retailer, then it's fair to assume it's probably not genuine and I'd be looking at returning it to the retailer and getting the money back.
If it's through a private individual, I'd be even more suspicious.
Fake chargers have been known to cause fires, damage equipment connected to them and can provide a higher risk of electrocution.
Personally, for stuff like this, I always go through a retailer that I can trust or the manufacturer
Not worth the risk

If it's a fake you can't trust anything written on it. It does look more convincing than the fake charger I bought. Check the weight, preferably with a scale that has 1/10 or 1/100 of a gram precision.

Does it weigh 120.42 g as per the specifications on the samsung website?
