Original Apple Charger - Recommended purchase for iPhone 8 or newer
Reviewed in the United Arab Emirates on 10 July 2021
To better evaluate products, I use specific criteria that match the product's nature. Those criteria vary between the products and their usability.
[Authenticity] It is necessary to understand whether to classify this product as a genuine Apple charger. As a rule of thumb, most products sold and shipped by Amazon are original as they are mainly sourced directly from the manufacturer. Amazon always aims to sell genuine products to their customers. SO, I would say that this product is the real deal and you can confidently buy it.
[Price] Buying this product from the Apple Stores in the UAE cost 79 AED, so you might be wondering if the 52 AED product is genuine or knockoff. The reason Amazon can take prices down is because of the number of units sold. Overall, saving 17 AED sounds like a great bargain, so the product is worth it.
[Quality] As you would imagine, Apple products don't need any quality evaluation. The high-quality power adapter can last forever, there is no sacrifice in quality, and there are no parts I can imagine breaking.
[Charging Speed] I've used this product for an iPhone 8,11,12, and the charging speed is just insane. It is just incomparable with the out-of-box 5w adapter that came with the older iPhones. You can get over 50% charge in less than 30 minutes.
Besides, if Apple decides to continue the trend of not including power adapters with the new iPhones, I would say this will still be a good deal since you can still use the adapter even if you change your phone and save the environment.
To conclude, I think this charger is a great deal, and I would urge you to get it if you have an iPhone 8 or newer. Further, I don't recommend going for compatible or knockoff chargers if you can only save a few dirhams. I don't have to speak in technical terms whatsoever, but Apple chargers are made for Apple iPhones, so they work best together.
