Apple’s products as well as their accessories are easily the best in build quality ever, with even the insides of them made elegantly to look beautiful. But they are also the most expensive one.

You might have thought that Apple charges you too much for your iPhone chargers to make some more profit, but after reading this article you’ll know that you were wrong, as being built nicely is not the only extra feature those chargers have.

An Apple enthusiast and techie, Ken Shirriff tore open the Apple charger to work out the inner workings of it. According to Ken, the power adapter used by Apple is a pretty different one used from other manufacturers such as Samsung and is even better than some other high-quality industrial designs — and has high cost. He also says that Apple has gone to great lengths to reduce EMI interference (charger interfering with the touch screen).

He goes on to say that Apple‘s heavily tweaked charger enables it to be a lot safer in a couple of ways, such as:

  • Super-strong AC prongs
  • Complex over-temperature or over-voltage shutdown circuit

Even though Apple’s iPhone charger is safer and better than a lot of other chargers, still it is expensive for it’s price, so Apple is certainly trying to stretch it’s profits by this.

Apple has been a big source of innovation this past decade, with new technologies such as Retina displays and stuff. But this piece of tech, Apple manages to fit in it’s iPhone chargers to make them more safe was yet unknown, so we wonder what else they are doing in it’s devices that we don’t yet know of.
