【PConline for the Period XLAB】
At the end of November, we bought 13 Apple Lightning data cables to test their current and voltage stability in detail. It is found that the data cable with MFI certification is indeed better than the data cable without MFI certification. The current and voltage during charging are indeed true. A lot of stability.
In addition, we also have an unexpected harvest, that is to detect it
7 MFI certification data cables marked with Apple MFI certification data cables are suspected of deficiency and fake standards
They are 25.9 yuan IMU fantasy 1.2 meters of Apple MFI certification data cable and 39.9 yuan Mingchuang Youpin 1m Apple MFI certification data cable.
The results of these two data cables displayed on the MFI detector are not “original”, indicating that the MFI chip they use may not be cracked products that have not passed certification.
Then, according to the product barcodes of the two products, check the certification of the two data cables of the IMU fantasy and Mingyin Youpin at Apple’s MFI authorization accessories query page, and confirm that the two data cables have passed Apple’s MFI authorized.
Apple’s official website can find MFI authorization information of the two data cables of IMU fantasy and famous products
So why do we actually buy products in the test results showing non -original MFI chips? It is understood that because the MFI chip needs to be purchased uniformly through Apple, the cost is high, so some manufacturers will use crack chips to save costs after passing certification.
In order to further verify the authenticity of the MFI certification of the two data cables, we bought a total of 4 IMU fantasy and famous apple data cables from the two channels of JD.com and Tmall flagship stores, respectively.
25.9 yuan IMU fantasy 1.2 meters Apple MFI certification data cable
The packaging of the new IMU fantasy data cable has the same difference from what we bought before, but according to the product barcode, it is the same product. It is found that the two new data cables that we buy from different channels are also different.
Two packaging comparison.
The shape of the two data cables is still the same. At first glance, the workmanship is still very solid.
39.9 yuan Mingchuang Youpin 1m Apple MFI certification data cable
The two newly purchased Apple data cables, the packaging is not different from the previous review.
MFI certification test
After finishing the difference between the appearance and the packaging, the test immediately was taken on the MFI detector. The result is as follows:
IMU fantasy Apple data cable detection results (the two on the left are newly bought this time, and on the far right is the last time I participated in the sample of Heng Rating):
The results of the data cable detection of the famous Apple line (the two on the left are newly bought this time, and the far right is a sample that participated in Heng Rating last time):
The test results of all 4 newly bought data cables are consistent with the evaluation results of the real laboratory before. All of them are not using the official MFI solution of Apple. All of our hands are fictional MFI products.
Although the products in the hands cannot explain that these two Apple data cables are falsely standards, the six data cables on our hands have at least that consumers have a probability of “winning” when buying these two products.
Charging current, voltage stability test
In order to further verify the difference between their data cables that are truly passed by MFI certification, we use Power Z to measure and record the stability of 6 data cable charging current and voltage, and under the same charging conditions, two MFIs of Momes and ANKER two MFIs The authentication data cable is compared, and the results are as follows:
It can be seen that there are two data cables with MFI -certified Mimi and Anker. The charging current and voltage stability are very high. Under the same conditions, 6 data cable currents are not stable enough under the same conditions. If the current fluctuates sharply, or the current and voltage have certain fluctuations, the gap can be seen at a glance with the Mimi and Anker with a stable and straight curve.
Although the price of the two data cables of the IMU fantasy and the famous products has a certain gap with the Moms and Anker. The non -MFI -certified cheap data cable is easy to damage the device due to the unstable charging current, and the warranty policy of Apple is not. Due to the failure of the use of non -MFI data cables, it is still recommended that you buy more stable MFI certification products.
The cost of Apple MFI certification is penetrated into each data cable, so the MFI data cable with too low price (30) still has to choose.
