Apple wants users of its products to use its chargers and cables, or, at least, products that it has certified. And this is not only valid for iPhones or iPads, but also for Apple Watches. Recently, the company updated its website to post a warning for Apple Watch owners who might be tempted to buy counterfeit chargers that are cheaper.

The speech does not change. “If you use a counterfeit or uncertified charger, you may experience slow charging, repeated chimes, and reduced battery life”, the firm writes in this new support page.

To recharge the Apple Watch, Apple recommends using only Apple magnetic chargers or those that are MFI certified. And in addition to issuing this warning, the firm also shared some tips to help users identify the right chargers.

How to Identify Genuine Apple Watch Chargers?

The first thing to do is to inspect the product. Indeed, it can be easy to identify a charger that was not sold by Apple, if it does not have the same design (a different color, another design, etc.).
