    From the latest issue of Which magazine (Oct 2019) on unknown brand chargers (from Amazon and eBay) - They tested 35 chargers from Amazon, 75% failed electrical safety checks, 11 chargers that looked like Apple chargers - 8 failed, 11 of 12 USB travel adaptors failed electrical safety checks, 6 of 11 power banks (5 of which had no thermal protection).
