The iPhone charger is made by Flextronics, the UK charger is made by Emerson Network Power , the iPad charger is made by Foxlink Technologies, and the Magsafe (ADP-85) charger is made by Delta Electronics. The A1385 iPhone charger often comes with the iPhone 5 and looks identical to the A1265 I measured, but is manufactured by Emerson Network Power instead of Flextronics. I am told that by using multiple manufacturers, Apple has more negotiating leverage, since they can easily switch manufacturers at any time if they’re not happy with the price or quality. The graphs were generated using the X-Y mode on the oscilloscope, with the load voltage as Y and the current as X.
We also looked for models that were built to withstand extreme conditions so you can climb any mountain in any weather without ever having to worry about your charger being damaged by the elements.
