Apple has recently updated its USB Power Adapter Takeback Program Web page to note that the service is available worldwide, and has added prices for locations spanning the globe. Originally, Apple noted that its program would be available in the United States and China only. As a reminder, reports of charger-induced deaths in China appear to have persuaded the Cupertino, Calif. company to launch the scheme, which allows iDevice users to exchange a third-party charger for an authorized one, while paying a small fee. Now, it's been confirmed that the USB Power Adapter Takeback Program is available worldwide. Discounted prices include: Customers in Australia (AUD $14), Canada (CAD $11), France (€10), Germany (€10), Japan (￥1,000), and the United Kingdom (£10) can also take advantage of the program. For more information, take a look at Apple's USB Power Adapter Takeback Program Web page.
