A little context on this phone charger sign - it was placed at a conference for hackers called DEF CON.
Even the first time I ever saw one of those public chargers I didn't trust it. I won't ever use any of them, because as they say in IT security - once you have physical access, you own the device. And there have been documented cases of these chargers installing root kits on people's phones, so my opinion is not unfounded.
