Cheap accessories can damage your expensive electronics

The power supply below looks just like a normal Canon power supply, right down to the correct model number and style. If you dig deeper, or just try and use this power supply, you start to notice things aren't exactly what they appear to be.

It seems as though there are some great deals to be had on Ebay for electronic accessories but like the saying goes, "You get what you pay for!".
Giorgos discovered the difference when his Canon camera started behaving strangely and was fortunate enough to have the experience and the test equipment to show just how poorly his bargain power supply performed.
So, before you buy a cheap power supply or battery charger for your cell phone, camera or iDevice, check out the video below and decide for yourself if its really worth saving a few dollars.
