Apple has just opened up a new trade-in program for your old USB power adapters after the death of a flight attendant who was electrocuted by answering an iPhone 5 that was on charge.
Apple have stated that "recent reports have suggested that some counterfeit and third party adapters may not be designed properly and could result in safety issues." This has led the Cupertino-based company to institute the USB Power Adapter Takeback Program, which lets consumers pick up a first-party iPad, iPhone or iPad plug for just $10, down from the usual $19.
In order to receive this discount, you just have to trade-in your old power adapter. The deal is limited to just one adapter for each device you own, so put down that box of old USB power adapters.
