Agreed, not worth frying expensive gadgets. USB cables that are cheap are garbage.

Anything that takes outlet voltage and reduces it should be considered possibly dangerous unless it comes from a known millions of $$$ manufacturer. At least a USB cable can only fry your expensive gear, and not start fires etc.

I agree and I would even caution of aukey. Anker seems okay though.

I’ve seen at least one aukey charger that has melted down and short-circuited

At least it melted and stopped, some of these bad designs short circuit and let you taste some line voltage.

There’s always a difference between fraudulently labeled bad USB outlets and defective equipment. The Aukey has real UL certifications, AFAIK. Blitzwolf is good, iLuv is crap, it’s pretty hard to actually keep track.
