Class-action lawsuits hit the tech industry on a regular basis, and the latest one is related to Apple's MagSafe power adapters. According to this announcement posted yesterday, a settlement currently pending approval could make "millions" of MacBook owners eligible for either "replacement power adapters or cash reimbursements for replaced adapters."
Members of the class include original owners of certain MacBook or MacBook Pro computers and/or purchasers of standalone 60W or 85W MagSafe MPM-1 (“T”) Power Adapters, or who purchased a replacement adapter within the first three years following their initial purchase, and before November 22, 2011. Eligible class members who have already bought a replacement adapter will receive reimbursements of their purchase costs on a sliding scale, up to a maximum of $79 (the original retail price) if the adapter was replaced in the first year, $50 in the second year, and $35 in the third.
Eligible users can head to adaptersettlement.com for more details and help submitting a claim form; apparently, they have until March 21 to apply.
