Apple Asks To Exchange The Power Adapters !

As the iPhone 3G power adapters give potential safety risk in use Apple has recalled for the adapters in Canada, Japan, Mexico, US and several Latin American countries but UK has not been affected by this issue.
Apple said in a statement that although injuries have not been reported yet it has planned to ask the customers to exchange the adapter In-Store or order a new one online.

Apple explained that they found the reason for the problem of the adapters. Under certain range of conditions the new ultracompact Apple power adapter can break off and remain the power in the outlet which creates a risk of electric shock, they added.

Hardware analyst Kevin Keller said, in order to save the money “fairly poor design approach” has been implemented. So the fragile prongs are causing the troubles while connecting the adapter.
