I bought two of these items on different days from different suppliers: For the one I got from Terminal 1, whilst obviously I can't be completely sure, this does look, feel and work like a genuine Apple product to me. It looks and feels identical to the one that came with my iPhone 5. And it charges my devices as quickly as the one that came with my iPhone 5. So I guess it's genuine. A few weeks later I bought another one from The TechTree-UK, and I'm really not so sure that one is genuine. It has a different build quality and the cable feels different. However I does charge quickly, so I guess it's not all bad.
