I know I shouldn't risk it, but $25 ???
I know, it's made in China, but so is Apple's charger.

I bought a 3rd party adapter in the past. It was so lightweight that I wasn’t comfortable using it with my precious Mac.
When it comes to power adapters and batteries, I’d spend the money on the real thing, if it’s available. Newertech from OWC is an exception; I’ve had great success with their power supplies and batteries.

For USB-C there are lots of quality 3rd party options, but maybe not $25 cheap.

Pay the price for quality products from Anker and RAVpower. Their gallium chargers are impressively small, powerful and run cool... and they have legit certifications.

Guaranteed chrome painted chinesium! I wonder if they went so far as trying to fake the UL listing. My guess is this is the kind of device that ends up killing people in bath tubs.

Wholly irrelevant.

Not a good value IMHO. Get a decent brand and one with USBA port too.
