Apple's AC Adapter Recall Affects Russian Customers

Apple has recalled a number of AC power adapters for Macs and iPads sold outside the United States due to the risk of breakage and electric shock, the U.S. tech giant reported on its website.

The recall applies to two-pronged wall plug adapters sold with Macs and the 10-watt adapters shipped with iPads between 2003 and 2015, in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Europe, New Zealand, and South Korea. The recall also applies to Apple's World Travel Adapter Kit.

Apple is directing its customers to this site for additional information regarding the recall.

Independent journalism isn’t dead. You can help keep it alive.

As the only remaining independent, English-language news source reporting from Russia, The Moscow Times plays a critical role in connecting Russia to the world.

Editorial decisions are made entirely by journalists in our newsroom, who adhere to the highest ethical standards. We fearlessly cover issues that are often considered off-limits or taboo in Russia, from domestic violence and LGBT issues to the climate crisis and a secretive nuclear blast that exposed unknowing doctors to radiation.

As we approach the holiday season, please consider making a one-time donation — or better still a recurring donation — to The Moscow Times to help us continue producing vital, high-quality journalism about the world’s largest country.
