There is a thread in sci.electronics.design that showed some major safety and performance issues with wall chargers for iPhones, iPads, and other phones and tablet devices. This may be a bit OT for EV chargers, but since "everyone" uses these devices it's important to know, especially the dangerous safety issues. It also sheds some light on Chinese counterfeit items and the typical gross exaggeration of specs, as I have seen with Lithium an NiMH cells.
