How can I spot a fake online?

Текст:

I know the only way to get a new one that isn’t fake is to buy it through Apple, but the machine I am getting is on the older side and I’d prefer to not spend $79 for an older but years newer system then my first attempt. This is why I am strictly looking at used adapters unless I keep getting unlucky and go to an Apple store. I got a 2011 13” this time.

In a previous attempt at a cheap Mac, I got a 2006 C2D MB and it was fried due to a knockoff (see this post: [post|564598]) and the machine was a total loss unless I see life with a different charger from a different notebook. I’m going much newer this time to reduce the risks (and avoiding the rMBP), but I need to find a genuine adapter. The last time I did this, the adapter I bought was a high grade fake that I was weary of because the cord didn’t feel right knowing what a real Apple power brick feels like.

Other then the manufacturer, is there any other red flags I can trust in photos to avoid these?
