Wish I had read reviews before purchasing since my return window is up. I would want a FULL REFUND FOR THIS. I purchased it in July and really didn't start using it much until recently. The first time I used it, I reached down to unplug it and hadn't anticipated how hot it was! I maybe used it four times after that and it no longer charges. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT TO ANYONE! I'm so glad that I hadn't had any melting or fire issue like other users. I am no longer attempting to use it, I won't risk putting my family in danger for this ridiculous product!
After looking at the other reviews of this charger, I thought that it seemed like a toss up on whether you would get one that worked or not. I took the risk, thinking that if it exploded or melted as others had I would be able to return it. It did work for 2.5 months, but has now stopped working and the return period is over. Not sure how long I had to return it as defective. I'll have to check into whether Apple has a longer warranty on its products - if so, that's a safer bet than taking a gamble on this thing.
This product is a "cheap knock off" that worked for about an hour before it got so hot that it started smelling like burnt electrical. then the light on the side of the plug started flickering and within a minute or so the charger was toast! Would never buy this product again. Spending the extra $$$ and getting the real thing!
