Some MacBook owners have probably received their laptops with Apple’s MagSafe chargers. For those who may have received the original T-style MagSafe adapters, you’re probably painfully aware of the MagSafe adapter’s ability to fray right the top, which will ultimately lead to wires being exposed and sometimes affecting the MagSafe’s ability to charge the MacBook properly.
The good news is that thanks to a class-action lawsuit that argued that the 60W or 85W MagSafe MPM-1 power adapter was defective, Apple will now start to offer cash claims and replacements, with the former offer to be valid until the 21st of March 2012, and the latter offer to be valid until the 31st of December 2012.
Apple maintains their stance that the MagSafe adapter is in no way defective, but we’re glad that they agreed to the settlement anyway. Do take note that this offer is valid only for customers with the original T-style MagSafe adapters that have been frayed due to Strain Relief Damage, and that accidental damage will not be accepted.
