Apple Pays Out On Faulty 60W and 85W MagSafe 'T' Power Adapters
If you’re a MacBook or MacPro owner, you might be able to see some money come your way. At some point, at least – courts aren’t known for quickness. If you have a MacBook or MacPro, or bought a 60W or 85W MagSafe ‘T’ Power Adapter and needed to buy a replacement adapter within three years due to Strain Relief Damage on the original adapter, Apple could owe you some cash. If you needed to buy a replacement within the first year, you could be entitled to as much as $79. If you needed a replacement within two years, you could get as much as $50, and as much as $35 if you needed a replacement within 3 years.
Of course, you’ll need proof, so hopefully you saved your receipts. You’ll want to dig up the receipts for the original and replacement adapter purchases for your claim form application, which can be found here. You can also go through a process to get a free replacement adapter, if your current adapter is showing signs of Strain Relief Damage. Luckily, you have time to root around the house and find those receipts. The deadline for claims submissions is March 21st, 2o12.
