Have you purchased what you thought was a genuine Apple USB power adapter for your Apple iPhone, iPad or iPod only to discover it’s a counterfeit? Are you nervous about using it after reading some of the recent articles about people being shocked by their chargers? Kicking yourself that you didn’t get a genuine Apple power adapter from a trusted source?
Well, now is the time to take action.
Apple has introduced, for a limited time, a USB Power Adapter Takeback Program. Essentially, you turn in your ‘questionable’ adapter to Apple to be properly recycled and they’ll drop the price on a replacement adapter to $10.00! See the link for complete details, but act quickly as this offer is only valid through October 18th, 2013.
It is worth noting that while there are reports of people being shocked by counterfeit Apple and fake/non-UL certified third party chargers, not all third party chargers are going to have issues. That’s why we sell both genuine Apple units as well as true UL certified, quality chargers that have passed OWC’s stringent approval process.
