By non-genuine, I meant a real "no-name" brand. They have the same physical
appearance and the unit made by the laptop manufacturer and probably even
have the manufacturer's logo on them (legally or not).
I can't comment on the Belkin unit you mention, but I would *hope* that a
brand name like Belkin would be more careful than the cheap imitations.
best of luck with it!
