Apple recalls and offers to replace iPhone 3G power adapters


Here is some bad news for iPhone 3G users - if your phone adapter looks like what you see in the picture above, it would be wise for you to stop using it immediately as it could be potentially hazardous. Apple has announced on Friday that the metal prongs on these plugs are weak enough to break off and remain stuck inside a power outlet, creating the risk of electric shock.

These ultracompact USB power adapters have been sold by Apple with the iPhone 3G models in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico and Several Latin American countries. But the good news is that Apple has offered to replace these adapters with new, redesigned ones (pictured below, with a green dot). The old adapters can be exchanged via the Web, or at an Apple retail outlet starting October 10th.
