    I was just wondering if the chargers I got were fake.
    Also attached photo of genuine charger out of the box.
    I ordered them from mobile zap and have attached photos as well as some wall chargers I'm unsure about as well. I'm worried about this as while I was using one to charge my tablet (using correct out of box cable and shorter wall plug) it got very hot and didn't actually charge but charged later using a different wall plug.

    read the small print on the wall plug. The one for fast charge will have two output voltages. one will be 5 and the other higher, probably 9.

    Not sure. I can't tell from the pictures. The bricks on the bottom one do look... different.

    With charging stuff I always ensure to snag from reputable places / sellers on Amazon. Just don't want anything wonky when it comes to electricity.

    Thank you. Which bottom one do you mean? Sorry about the photos. Have attached a clearer pic of the back of chargers.

    The white one in the middle at least got the markings right. The S6 and S7 shipped with white fast chargers.
