Can you measure the weight of original and fake one?

Original usb cable has shorter micro usb part, also has in-printed some text along side the cable, and its more rubbery and flexible.

I trow away fake one. you simply can find original charging head with notches on two wall plugs (4. picture), but for cable you can feel that is more rubbery, and not stiff.

I know, I have also original one - or at least I think I have . But they can also improve their copying skills and can imitate almost similar design nowadays. But as for weight, weight they won't fake. That's why it's important to know the weight of original one.

For everyone who is in doubt if his charger is genuine or fake, have a look at these pictures. Readily recognizable difference.

See the difference between genuine and fake charger - Full-jacket capacitor next to the usb connector from genuine charger. Diode from fake charger at same position.
Genuine and Fake Samsung charger

On genuine charger, you can easily see full-jacket capacitor - proof for original charger.

Another original/fake.

Fake:
5,6V at idle - no device connected
250mA-1000mA charging current via battery monitor.

Original:
Came with samsung s4, had to replace due to broken ac plug pins (be careful, they easily brake)
5,1V at idle

Two first pictures are the fake one, last two are the original.

And if anybody wonders - you can't open it (original and fake) without damaging it - it's glued, best bet is to use a carpenter knife
