Default Charging dock for $15.50

Is this Legit? Original or rip off?

From the pictures, the dock doesn't have SONY written on the top of it so I'm guessing fake. Seems to be a fair few of them on Amazon but if they do the job for half the price then I don't see a problem.

That one even seems to use one of the same pictures from your link, although the back connections are totally different.

Its not original Sony and it doesnt say the same as well. Secondly in original variant cable is not detachable which is bad and in this its detachable.

Pretty Reasonable.

I wonder if that data port also carries power. I could use that to charge my SW while the phone is on the dock at night without the need of a second/dual charger

they're fake but work, the ones I bought are even spring loaded so it never stresses the magnetic port too much. Also came with 2 size tray adapters, although the larger size is still too slim for any cases.

Definitely does not carry data, only power.

Hasn't harmed my Z2 yet. I used Gravity Box to enable landscape mode on my lock screen, perfect for the bedside.

The second one linked has a short USB data cable(this is what I'm wondering if it also has power since magnetic connector is used to charge phone) & specific states to be used for data connection.
