I'm gonna wait till Oct 15th, then just to down to the apple store and exchange it.
in for 2 wall chargers
you'll probably have to turn in your old one so they can dispose of it. unless you mean you have two so you're going to swap them both out
they dont do anything to get the recalled one back other than send you an envelope.
they prob pull something sneaky to charge you
when they did the battery recall I never sent my battery back
impossible if they dont have any information to charge you with
so you are saying keep the recalled one AND the new one?
or try and bring the recalled on into a store once you get the new one in the mail?
What's the point in keeping a recalled item? Who wants an item that could potentially break off in the wall socket and start a fire? They have recalls for a reason. Instead of just throwing them out, you might as well give them back to Apple so they can properly dispose of them.
I don't think I ever sent my iBook battery back when it was recalled. I didn't continue to use it, I just forgot to send it back. I was never charged for anything.
So they can recycle and resell?
try paying attention to what the fuck youre doing when youre inserting/removing the charger from the wall, or quit playing football in your room.
I still have mine and cycle it into use once a month or so. but it's ace for trips and flights and such.
does a seperately purchased mini wall charger count?
By the way, it's not being called a 'recall' by Apple, its a 'product exchange'
Apple almost never calls things a recall. They use the term exchange because it sounds less negative. The overheating 15" PowerBook batteries were an "exchange" too. They're a marketing company and they do it well.
pull it out straight and you shouldnt have a problem
because now you can have two. get the replacement and keep the original.
the probably found out the prongs can break off if you are really rough with them 1% of the time. not a big deal to keep such a "dangerous" item.
Yeah this thing came out THE DAY I bought my iphone.
So I didn't get the wall adaptor at all. AT&T took it out of my box before they sold it to me.
I went to the apple store like 3 days later and filled out a form and theyre supposed to send me one in the mail.
But if you actually do pull out the adapter and the prongs stay in, then what are you going to do?
flip the breaker to your house
get a pair of needle nose pliers and pull it out
throw it in the trash
step 1 is clearly optional
if the pliers have rubber grips at the end.
