4 months ago I orderd a 2.0A charger for my s4, using the app called Battery it was saying 2000ma or 2A I don't reember I lost it affter a week... so I used my s2 charger at 1.0A now I ordered a new s4 chrager but it saying 4.1V/1.A is it fake?

The one on the picture is original, 5V 2A.

4.1V 1A it's unusual, never heard about a charger with that specs. I guess that can't handle Galaxy S4 well for the amperage too low, the voltage it's too low too, under the standard stabilized 5V that any mobile device uses. Charging shouldn't start at less than 4.7-4.8V, I think that it's fake. A lot of Samsung chargers are 1:1 than the original esthetically, but are fake... A bit like iPhone ones

Wait, so you don't have a charger rated in that way. The one in the picture is rated 4.1V at 1A through that app?

That charger it's rated 5V at 2A, 1:1 as original and 1:1 as mine. Are you using stock cable? It's designed to handle 2A current without dispersion, in simple way: another cable thinner/longer etc has more resistance/inductance/parasite capacitance and it's the cause of less V/A.

In this case I don't trust a lot that kind of apps... It's impossible to charge your device with 4.1-4.3 volts, charging process can't start
