hi everyone,

 

I have samsung series 3 laptop. I have bought a laptop charger from an electronic shop, they told me it is OEM. I am a bit concerned if using it will void my warranty.

 

how do you tell if a samsung laptop charger is Genuine vs OEM vs fake/copy.

 

 

 

 

 

thanks in advance

If it is genuine, it would have a Samsung sticker on it.

If it was OEM, you would see the label of that's company on it.

If it's fake, it'd probably have no sticker or some Chinese writing on it.

Dont worry about it.  I had to by a new charger for my series 7.  It says replacement charger on it.  Works great, got great reviews.  Been using it for several months, no problems.  If I ever have an issue, I will send the laptop in for warranty work with the original charger.
