I just discovered a major flaw in the chuwi hi13 charger. I believe it's just a design flaw because my charger is currently working just fine. When the charger is disconnected from the wall socket, it maintains the electricity inside the charger that can be discharged through the prongs. If your finger happens to be in contact with both of the prongs when the charger still has energy in it, then it is quite painful. I have posted a video on this on youtube. I encourage everyone to try this just to see if it is really a design flaw or if only my unit is suffering from it.
Normally there should be some kind of resistor to discharge the energy from ac capacitors when disconnected to prevent this from happening. I havent opened my unit yet, so I can't speculate what is actually going on inside the charger.
