Press release from: Charger 4 U

Manchester, UK (25 February 2011) - Charger 4 U, one of the leading online suppliers of original laptop chargers and other laptop power supplies, are warning customers against the dangers of sourcing cheap counterfeit laptop chargers from China, as despite the obvious appeal of their extremely low cost, these laptop chargers are often unreliable and potentially dangerous.

In recent years the UK has been flooded with low-quality counterfeit laptop chargers and adapters, but the good news is that spotting a fake is quite easy for those who know what to look for.

A tell-tale sign of a fake replacement laptop charger is that it will be noticeably lighter than an original, as the internal components and plastic used to form its outer body will be of inferior quality. There is also likely to be spelling mistakes found on the adapter's label, which will also appear less glossy than on an original and may not even be stuck on straight.

"We are very concerned about the influx of counterfeit laptop chargers from China," commented a spokesperson for Charger 4 U. "There have been many instances of these laptop chargers and adapters being hardwired without fuses, which can lead to power surges, laptop burn our, and in more extreme cases, power cuts and even electrocution for users.

"All laptop chargers and other laptop power supplies bought from Charger 4 U are high quality originals at the lowest possible prices, from companies such as Liteon, Delta, Hipro and Acbel. Our safe, reliable laptop chargers can be purchased online from anywhere in the world 24 hours a day, and we aim to deliver within three days."
