iPhone 3G power adaptor recall

Adapter prongs break off

Apple seems
to have another issue with the iPhone 3G. This one is with the iPhone 3G power adaptors, which seems to have a problem with the prongs breaking off the adaptor and remaining stuck in power outlets.

Apple has issued a recall and now says that they will start exchanging the ultra-compact USB adaptors for a new model without charge starting October 10th.

For the time being, Apple is recommending that iPhone 3G users that are using the USB adaptor or have purchased it separately stop using it, and instead use the standard USB power adaptor with the fold up prongs. Another possibility that Apple is suggesting is that you can, of course, charge your iPhone by plugging it into a standard powered USB port on your computer.

Apple said in a statement that they have received reports of the blades on the power adaptor becoming dislodged from the adaptor, but they did not indicate if to this point there had been any injuries.

So, if you own the ultra-compact USB power adapter that was sold in Argentina, Canada, Chile, Columbia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Japan, Mexico, Panama, Peru, or the U.S., you should follow the link below and go Apple’s Web site and arrange for an exchange.

If you happen to own the ultra-compact USB power adaptor and it has a green dot on the bottom of it, this indicates that the ultra-compact USB power adaptor is safe and does not need to be replaced.

You can find more information on the replacement program here.
