I bought this lead because I was using a nokia lead to charge my phone and it kept falling out whenever I moved the phone whilst on charge. As soon as I received this lead, I plugged it in and it did the same thing (my original lead does not). I also noticed that the lettering on the hTc label looked a little odd, and when I compared it to the genuine one, I could clearly see it was a knock-off. It looks OK and does what it's supposed to sort-of, but it is not genuine or "original".
If you are having trouble with your leads and are looking for a proper quality genuine hTc, avoid this cheap and nasty fake.
If you are looking for a cheap and naty fake, this is the lead for you.
