Apple expands USB power adapter takeback program

On August 19, 2013


Last week Apple officially launched the USB Power Adapter Takeback Program, now they have added many new countries where consumers may trade-in a third-party USB charger for a discount on an official Apple charger.

The program was originally introduced last month after the electrocution of a Chinese woman, who was apparently using a counterfeit iPhone charger.

Apple is expected to accept and recycle any third-party charger at any Apple Retail Store or participating Apple Authorized Service Provider. they will also provide an authentic charger for $10 in the United States, a $9 discount from Apple’s regular pricing.
