Charging your BlackBerry safely
The first Blackberry was released in 1999 and at the peak of it's success, there were 85 million BlackBerry subscribers worldwide. If you are still using a BlackBerry today, it's important to make sure you charge it safely. Do you know the dangers surrounding fake BlackBerry chargers?
1.8 million mobile phone chargers are bought online each year in the UK by mobile phone owners in search of a bargain. Though it’s often cheaper to buy imported, unofficial chargers, the cost can be much greater in the long run...
Fake mobile phone chargers are often made with poor quality components that fail to meet UK safety regulations. This means they can cause injury, electric shocks and even fires.
Because the BlackBerry has a Qwerty keyboard and offers many useful communication functions, BlackBerry phones are especially popular with business users.
But if you want to leave your charger in the office and purchase another to have at home, you should always be sure to buy from a reputable retailer.
