Apple Steps up to Eliminate Counterfeit Chargers Due to “Safety Issues”

In China 2 people have been seriously injured and killed charging their Iphones with counterfeit chargers. Instead of Apple turning their heads and washing their hands clean they have decided to take the high road. Yup! They launched a new program that allows customers a chance to trade in their third party counterfeit chargers in exchange for a discounted $10.00 replacement. Oh course Apple will validate the customer’s product using their product serial number, but at least they are doing something.

The “Takeback Program” will launch Aug. 9 in China and Aug. 16 in the US and will end Oct. 18, 2013. You can also visit Apple China to check your chargers authenticity. (http://www.apple.com.cn/power-adapters/)
