Apple iPad explosion forces evacuation of an Australian Vodafone store
Apple has had a problem with chargers recently, although some of the blame has been placed on third party manufacturers. Back in July, a Chinese flight attendant was allegedly electrocuted when she went to answer a call on her Apple iPhone 5. That seemed to kick off a number of stories about iPhone and iPad users getting shocked by their device. One particularly poignant story revolved around a father who was thrown across the room after getting shocked by his 8 year old daughter's iPad.
The Cupertino based company put up a website showing information on how to distinguish a third party charger from an official Apple one. And the tech titan also started an exchange program that offered discounted chargers to those who turned in one made by a third party.
