Whether you need a replacement or just want an extra phone charger, sometimes it’s tempting to purchase an off-priced option rather than the expensive charger provided by the manufacturer. However, purchasing a bargain charger could have disastrous consequences not just for your phone, but for your safety. With this short video, ESFI and UL are reminding consumers to beware of counterfeit chargers. Be sure to check out our library of resources to help identify and avoid dangerous counterfeit electrical products.
