Apple iPhone Charger Teardown

Post by Stephen Hart » Wed May 23, 2012 9:50 am

I don't know if there are any SMUG members who know a bit about electronics. I don't know much, but found this article fascinating.
Note that Apple redesigned the chargers after a recall for a dangerous design flaw. (The new ones have a green dot on the label.) But apparently they went way overboard with the redesign.
The author says the $30 cost must be mostly profit, but after reading the article, I'd gladly pay for another one.*

* I have two because my first iPhone was defective and Apple told me to keep everything but the actual defective phone.
