If your Apple iPhone 3G Power Adapter have a green dot on the bottom you are safe

apple_replacement_adapter.jpgApple has determined that the metal prongs in the new ultracompact Apple USB power adapter can, under certain conditions, break off and remain in a power outlet, creating a risk of electric shock. Apple has therefore decided voluntarily to exchange every ultracompact power adapter for a new redesigned adapter, free of charge. The adapters were supplied with every iPhone 3G (and may also have been purchased separately as an accessory) sold in the U.S., Japan, Canada, Mexico, and several Latin American countries. Users with ultracompact power adapters should immediately stop using them until they exchange them for a new, redesigned ultracompact adapter.

Apple USB power adapters supplied with original iPhones or supplied with iPhone 3G units sold in other countries are not affected. Replacement adapters have a single green dot on the bottom. If you have an ultracompact adapter with a green dot on the bottom, you already have a new, redesigned adapter and do not need to participate in this exchange program.
