Apple to Provide Refunds for Notebook Power Adapters?
Customers who bought certain replacement adapters for PowerBook and iBook computers are eligible for the settlement, according to documents filed in federal court in San Jose. U.S. District Court Judge James Ware granted preliminary approval of the agreement March 24.
The settlement has not yet been finalized with an approval hearing scheduled for September 8th.
One customer had posted a Youtube video demonstrating a sparking power supply, though it was from a MacBook, so it does not appear that it would necessarily qualify for this settlement. Full details on the settlement won't be available until it is finalized.
