Apple has begun a worldwide programme to replace third-party and counterfeit USB chargers. The initiative comes after reports that a Chinese woman was electrocuted by a non-Apple charger.

apple_chargerApple said it would swap third-party chargers for an official replacement on payment of $10 or the equivalent in local currency.

The programme begins on 16 August and will run to 18 October.

In mid-July, Apple said it was investigating reports that a Chinese woman, Ma Ailun, was killed when she answered her iPhone 5 while it was plugged into a wall charger. The third-party charger was later blamed as the cause.

No mention was made of Ms Ma’s death in the blogpost announcing the trade-in programme but Apple said that the initiative was prompted by “safety issues”.

Those who want to get an official charger must hand over the third-party device and give the serial number of the iPhone, iPod or iPad it is being used to charge. The $10 or equivalent fee is a discount on the usual price of a charger.

Apple said that the third-party and fake chargers would be “disposed of in an environmentally friendly way”.
