Apple’s 30 pin adapter technology has been replaced with an 8-pin connector. This technology makes the latest adapter more compact and harder to replicate.

Many third-party companies are striving to replicate the new technology and sell customers low grade adapters. But no company has actually been able to provide genuine 100% Lightning yet, there are not only delicate differences of appearance but also a totally different design of the internal chip.

Shenzhen Esorun Technology, the wholesaler of the latest 8-pin cable, recently found that most of the readily available fake adapters are compatible with the original Apple devices, but occasionally they may cause trouble in establishing a connection.

It is important for all Apple users that they be able to distinguish the original and fake cables. There are some glaring peculiarities that have been observed in the fake adapters and they are noticeable at two levels: one in appearance of the cable itself and another inside of the cable.

When it comes to appearance and looks, the original 8-pin Lightning is finely polished with a smooth finish, whereas the fake one neither has the looks nor is finely polished and has a rough appearance. While a unique distinguishing code and statement are printed on the original cable, close to the USB dock, this marker may completely be absent in the fake versions.

Also, the brim of the original USB dock is sub angular and the edges are neatly polished. In contrast, the fake version has a rounded and unpolished brim.

Lastly, the plastic of the original USB dock has a natural and pure white color, whereas the fake one has an overly unnatural white.

From the inside, if one cut opens the cable, a full shielding metal circle is visible and on opening the connector, one finds a unique code and chip, which may completely be absent in the fake ones.

These almost 1:1 Lightning adapters were launched in China last week at about $3. The price of the original adapter is quoted at $19. The one offered by Shenzhen Esorun Technology will cost Apple users only $12, in comparison.
