Apple Extends USB Power Adapter Takeback Program to More Countries


Due to the increase in the number of complaints regarding the safety and quality of cheap (aka “fake”) USB charging accessories, Apple recently commenced a “Takeback” program in the United States and China. This has now been extended to a handful of additional countries.

This program essentially enables the consumer to take their suspect adapter into a participating store to trade in for a genuine Apple adapter at a discounted price:

  • Australia – $14 AUD
  • Canada – $11 CAD
  • China – ¥68 CNY
  • France, Germany and the United Kingdom – €10 EUR
  • Japan – ¥1,000 JPY
  • United States – $10 USD
