Apple lanseaza un program prin care ofera la pret redus incarcatoare originale pentru iDevice-uri in schimbul celor contrafacute

  In urma incidentelor care au avut loc in China si Australia si au trimis in spital persoane dupa utilizarea unor incarcatoare contrafacute pentru iDevice-uri, cei de la Apple au decis sa ia masuri si au pornit un program, numit USB Power Adapter Takeback Program. Incepand din 9 august, in China, si 16 august in restul lumii, compania Apple va oferi posesorilor de iDevice-uri posibilitatea de a inlocui un incarcator contrafacut cu unul original la pretul de doar 10$. Tot ce trebuie utilizatorii sa faca este sa mearga intr-un Apple Store, sau reseller autorizat, impreuna cu iDevice-ul si incarcatorul contrafacut, sa plateasca 10$ si sa plece cu unul original.

Recent reports have suggested that some counterfeit and third party adapters may not be designed properly and could result in safety issues. While not all third party adapters have an issue, we are announcing a USB Power Adapter Takeback Program to enable customers to acquire properly designed adapters. Customer safety is a top priority at Apple. That’s why all of our products — including USB power adapters for iPhone, iPad, and iPod — undergo rigorous testing for safety and reliability and are designed to meet government safety standards around the world.

  Angajatii Apple nu vor putea verifica daca un incarcator detinut de voi este contrafacut sau produs de o companie terta si este conform cu standardele Apple, insa inlocuirea se va face in orice conditii. Programul initiat de catre compania Apple este derulat pana la data de 18 octombrie 2013, deci exista timp suficient pentru oricine doreste sa aiba un incarcator original care nu il va electrocuta. Ca sa fiu sincer, ideea celor de la Apple este extrem de buna, incarcatoarele lor originale sunt oricum mai scumpe, asa ca daca aveti un incarcator vechi sau contrafacut, ar fi bine sa vizitati un reseller Apple si sa cumparati altul original.

Starting August 16, 2013, if you have concerns about any of your USB power adapters, you can drop them off at an Apple Retail Store or at an Apple Authorized Service Provider. We will ensure that these adapters are disposed of in an environmentally friendly way.

If you need a replacement adapter to charge your iPhone, iPad, or iPod, we recommend getting an Apple USB power adapter. For a limited time, you can purchase one Apple USB power adapter at a special price — $10 USD or approximate equivalent in local currency. To qualify, you must turn in at least one USB power adapter and bring your iPhone, iPad, or iPod to an Apple Retail Store or participating Apple Authorized Service Provider for serial number validation. The special pricing on Apple USB power adapters is limited to one adapter for each iPhone, iPad, and iPod you own and is valid until October 18, 2013.
