Did you know that cheap or counterfeit charge cables for your device cause more harm than good?
A cheap charge cable can do some serious damage. These cables often give your device unlimited power, which is hard for your device to handle. Eventually, a bad charging cable can burn out a very important chip on your logic board called the Tristar (or U2 chip). The damaged Tristar seriously impairs your phone’s ability to properly charge, and can even prevent it from turning on once the battery is drained.
Always use certified cables from a trusted source; if the price seems too good to be true, it is most likely not safe for your device.
