Apple Offering Up Free Magsafe Adapter Replacements

Apple is now offering free replacements for all users that have been experiencing issues with their Magsafe Power Adapters.

Apparently the adapters are failing at a high enough rate for the company to offer up free replacements. All owners of a Late 2006 13″ Macbook, 13″ Macbook, 15″ Macbook Pro (Glossy) or 17″ Macbook Pro, whether the machines are out of warranty or not, are eligible.

The Apple site says:

“You may notice a separation of the white insulation on the magnetic end of the MagSafe adapter. Under continued use, the cable may discolor and the rubber molding may become deformed.”

Resolution:

“Whether your product is in or out-of-warranty, you can take your adapter (you don’t need to take the computer) to an Apple-Authorized Service Provider or Apple Retail Store for evaluation, and replacement if necessary. You may be eligible for a replacement adapter free of charge provided there are no signs of abuse. Make a reservation at the Genius Bar before visiting your local Apple Retail Store. To make a reservation, go to http://www.apple.com/retail/geniusbar/.”
