Charger Interference or Noise
Most of us with the stock S7S charger notice issues with touch along the edges of the screen when the unit is plugged in.
Same effect for those of us with the Energizer XPAL 18000 battery
Luckily, the effects are minimal because of high standards in place for interference or noise.
But I recently purchased a $13 3rd party charger that has 'noise' up the kazoo. It even has a disclaimer printed on its base that it may cause interference (not visible in online pictures at the time). Inking with the pen works 100% fine, but touch is inoperable. I have no complaints since the charger is slim and extremely affordable, but my question is, are there any long term effects to using it to charge the S7S? It's got all the same specs, just lower standards.

ant: Probably not, as long as the charger is not operating wildly off nominal output voltage. The S7S is built for a 19V or 19.5V charger input, and as long as you are within a volt or so of that number, the charger should be OK for long term use. EM interference shouldn't have any lasting effects (unless, of course, something really serious is wrong with your unit).
