Using a fake battery for your laptop or mobile phone is like ruining your precious assets. Carrying a good laptop or a mobile has become more desirable these days than following the fashion trends. For this reason, the wholesale businesses of counterfeit batteries are flourishing. To keep you from buying fake laptop charger and thus ruining the device, this post includes and discusses the relevant pointers.

Compare the size

For wholesale suppliers of laptops and accessories, dealing in genuine is very important but, as a buyer, it is your responsibility to check if the items you intend to buy are original. One way to tell apart a fake and original laptop battery is its size. No matter how sharp the manufacturers of fake items have been, they are bound to make a mistake in size of the battery, its logo, switch, and the smoothness of the edges. If you have observed the original battery closely, you will be able to tell the difference between the fake and the real one.

Weigh the charger

Most of the replicas use cheap raw and finishing material to keep the price of fake products low. This results in a difference of weight between the original and fake batteries. To be able to spot fake laptop batteries, you are advised to study your original battery closely. Holding the fake one will instantly give you the feeling that you are not carrying an original charger. It is to be noted that for smaller and portable items, original manufacturers prefer using light material. The replicas do it the other way round and are thus can easily be identified.

Check input and output

To find an original and compatible battery for your laptop, do compare the voltage mentioned on your laptop with that mentioned on the battery. Flip your laptop upside down and read the voltage requirement mentioned on the sticker. Comparing the wattage aka output current of your laptop with that of the charger is equally important. This value mentioned on laptop battery has to be equal or higher than the one mentioned on laptop. Many counterfeit product sellers take advantage of buyers' carelessness.

Ask for warranty

Only original accessories come with a warranty. Manufacturers apply the best of technologies to make sure that the items offer value against the money spent on them and if some fault occurs, the concerned department take it into account and fix the issue once and all. The fake battery manufacturers on the other hand are busy piling up the stocks of fake items and do not care if the items offer the promised results. Therefore, no warranty is offered when you buy a fake laptop battery. Mostly the buyers do not ask for a warranty card and the sellers get away with it.

Closely inspect the attached wire and plug

No standard procedure is applied on the production of fake products so it mostly happens that the produced items vary in size, weight, and appearance. You don’t really need to be a detective to be able to tell fake chargers apart from the original ones. Simply take the wire and scratch its one end with your thumb nail. If you can sink your nail deep into the wire, splitting it open, you’re holding a fake charger.

The wire’s length for fake battery is also not the same as that of the original one and same is the case for their plugs. The style, size of the plug also varies for fake batteries which hardly comes anywhere near that of the original makes. Therefore, having a closer look at the wire and plugs can also help you to find out if you are buying an original battery for your laptop.
