REMINDER: Recall of the Apple Ultracompact USB Power Adapter

Share:

Hey all!

Today’s post will be a quick reminder (and what to do) about the recall two weeks ago of the iPhone 3G Ultra-compact USB Adapter.

If you have not done so already, head over to Apple�and register to have your new adapter sent to you. Otherwise, you can always go in-store to your local Apple Store or Rogers or Fido dealer and have them replace it for you, but really, I would just do both. Start at Apple.ca, and if that seems to take too long, then move to the stores!

For the full details regarding the recall, please click HERE and read.

Also, I have noticed a minor increase in questions and/or comments regarding procedures of the recall and also regarding the procedures of new price plans and such from Rogers.

Enjoy!

    Do you have to send the old one back in to Apple?
    Because if you order off Apple, and then you go to Rogers/Apple Store before it arrives, would that mean you have two chargers? Or would they cancel your order if you did it online?
    That would be awesome, one for home and one for my backpack just in case! =)

    just went to the Rogers at the Pen in St Catharines and they told me the Rogers stores can’t replace the charges. BS or what?

    I am not sure if Rogers will require you to hand in your original adapter, but I meant my comment that all those channels are available to you.

    Also, Rogers and Fido stores will be exchanging them after October 10.

    received my new adapter today from Apple. I had ordered it online the day it was announced just about 2wks ago (9/19).

    If you order from Apple, you have to return the old one – they give you a prepaid shipping box. The instruction sheet says if you fail to return the old one within 10 days to Apple, your credit card will be charged for the replacement – this is the normal procedure for AppleCare warranty replacement items.

  • I still need to send in my adapter, but I’m still using my first gen charger and cable. 🙂

    I received my new power adapter from Apple today (ordered from the web) However, I did not receive any prepaid return box. I guess I’ll have to contact Apple again… :S

    I’m trying to order on the web but it’s saying my postal code isn’t right, and I’m not doing anything wrong. I’m not near an apple store, so what to do?

    You could always visit your local Rogers or Fido store, depending on who you bought your iPhone from.

    Or you can always call Apple; they tend to take recalls pretty seriously.
