Apple Expands USB Power Adapter Takeback Program to 30 Countries

Apple's USB Power Adapter Takeback Program has been expanded to 30 countries and the prices of the adapters for each region have been revealed.

According to recent report, some unofficial adapters  do not correspond to the safety requirements due to improper design. As not all such adapters have an issue, Apple has decided to launch a USB Power Adapter Takeback Program so that customers could buy official adapters.

Apple is  customer-oriented company, the safety of its users being the priority issue. This is the reason for severe testing our products are subject to. So the items, including the USB power adapters for iPhone, iPad, and iPod are certified to correspond to safety standards around the world.


The program will launch on August 16, 2013. Since then you will be able to give in your unofficial adapter at an Apple Retail Store or at an Apple Authorized Service Provider. Apple will ensure them to be disposed of in an environmentally friendly way.

Instead you will be recommended to purchase an Apple USB power adapter to charge your iPhone, iPad or iPod. Currently you have a great possibility to buy the adapter for  $10 USD only (or its approximate equivalent in local currency). To use the opportunity you just need to give in a third-party adapter and bring your  iPhone, iPad, or iPod to an Apple Retail Store or participating Apple Authorized Service Provider for serial number validation. But remeber, you can get only one adapter for each of your devices! And do not linger. The special pricing ends October 18, 2013.
