Last time I went to H’s hometown I left my iPhone charger at her sisters
place. While waiting for it to get sent back I bought a cheap (20rmb i think) compact copy at Cybermart which I never got round to using because I found my old iPod touch adapter when I got home.
Anyhooo I was packing for a korea trip last night and was packing light (one night trip) so thought I’d give the compact charger a try.
I figured i’d better test it first so I plugged the charger lead into the iPhone and the other end into the charger, then plugged it into the wall. There was an immediate loud POP and a small fizzing cloud of black smoke came from the charger.
I was convinced I’d fried my iPhone but it’s still working fine, thank FSM! I was lucky though, that’s the last time I connect my iPhone before plugging the charger into the wall and the very last time I plug it into an unofficial accessory!
I’m sure confucious has some kind of proverb about this kind of thing but this really isn’t that kind blog, CARRY ON!
