Got a new 3G iPhone of iTouch – get a new adapter
One thing I really liked about the new iPhone and iTouch was a little USB adapter that came with the device to charge it off the wall.
Apple is recalling the adapter because one of the prongs could break off and remain lodged in the outlet. They are recalling them (Apple PR Post) and ask that people charge off the USB outlet on the computer. A replacement will be available in a couple of weeks (October 10) from an apple store – bring the old in and swap for the new one (with a green dot) or go to an Apple website and order the replacement.
It is free and a bit of an inconvenience, but do it. Do not endanger yourself or others…
