Apple has posted a new webpage encouraging Chinese customers to use official Apple chargers following two incidents with users being shocked by their charging iPhones, reports TNW.

The translated passage reads:

When you charge your iPhone or iPad, we suggest that you use all USB power adapters with correspondingly-labeled USB cables. These adapters and cables can be purchased as individual items from Apple and authorized Apple retailers.

It's believed that a third party of knock-off chargers were responsible for the death of Ma Ailun, a flight attendant who was shocked to death while answering a phone call on her charging iPhone, and for putting Wu Jiantong into a coma by shocking him as he plugged his iPhone to charge.

if you work in industry, you will know that the products as to be tested before goes out to the market. and that cost really black money! Apple test their own products intensively. do the after market products are tested according to Apple standards? off course not, so by original products if you desire to keep walking on the safe side
