    is the white apple charger the only one that cuts off charging when the iPhone gets full or is it a phone feature that stops any charge?

    I have a black charger i got in a package from Verizon and didn't want to overcharge and had heard the apple stops charging when it gets to 100 then leaks out some then charges again but didn't know if it was charger or the phone that did that.


    Thanks.

    The phone handles that and it will never overcharge.
    Its not a charger feature or option.

    It's not the charger. Any modern electronic device that is not a total piece of garbage won't allow for over charging.

    That's my understanding of it all as well. That said, it's kind of interesting how there are still stories and all kinds of warnings about using "cheap" chargers that could cause damage of one sort or another--if the device basically controls when to accept the charge and how much to accept, then it would seem that something like that shouldn't really be an issue.

    True.
    Unless the charger or knockoff wire shorts out and catches on fire or something.
    But that could also happen to official Apple equipment.
