Is there any reason to pay extra for an OEM factory charger instead of a cheap 3rd party USB charger?
OEM charges cost much more than 3rd party chargers. For example, I found a generic charger for an iPhone 5 for $4.79 online, while the Apple power adapter was around $20 plus you have to get the cable for another $29. I picked Apple for the example because I knew they would be expensive before I even looked, but that is a huge difference in price. There is only so much voltage that can go through a USB port, and the USB port itself is standardized.
