So when I received the package I, naturally enough, tried to charge my phone (Sony Ericsson X8), but charge it did not. Turns out the adapter part was actually broken. Luckily for me my old adapter worked fine, it was my old cable that broke, so fortunately enough I'm now able to charge my phone. But if my old adapter was broke, I would've been sent something completely useless. So like I said, I only got half of what I paid for.
