    There have been cases of iPhones burning due to non-original chargers, but I believe those cases are very rare. Many people use non-original chargers and accessories, so it's up to you to decide whether you want to run that potential risk, even if it's very small :)

    Better to use original chargers and lightning cables than to be sorry :)
    I know the original charger has a green dot. I would look-up pictures and compare them.

    It's good to be safe, but I'm not really sure that a lot of people have been having issues, let alone serious issues, with third party cables and chargers. Perhaps the counterfeit ones that are sold as the real Apple ones (and hard to say for sure even about those, although best to stay away from them in general anyway).
