Additional information:
The UK Trading Standards Institute (“TSI”) reports the following USB Power Adapters are subject to this exchange program:

  • Non-Apple USB Power Adapters for iPhone, iPad or iPod

According to the TSI, recent reports have suggested that some counterfeit and third-party USB Power Adapters may not be designed properly and could result in safety issues, specifically electric shock hazards. Although not all third party Adapters have this safety hazard, Apple has announced a USB Power Adapter “Takeback Program” to exchange these Adapters for known good Power Adapters from Apple.
