Apple's power adapter take back extends beyond U.S and China

The Apple 3rd-party power adapter take back scheme, launched following electrocution reports, will be extending to customers beyond the initially supported U.S. and China. The program will allow anyone to take back a non-Apple USB power adapter and purchase a genuine one at a discounted price of $10. The expansion, first noticed by 9to5Mac now takes in locations in Europe, as well as Australia, Canada and Japan:

Over the past couple of days, Apple has updated its Support Page for the USB trade-in-program to note a few other supported regions and the corresponding discount pricing: Australia ($14 AUD), Canada ($11 CAD), France (10 €), Germany (10 €), Japan (¥1,000), and the United Kingdom (10 €).

As with the U.S, the program in these additional countries will start on August 16, and will run through to October 18. The exchange program will be available at Apple Retail Store and Apple Authorized Service Providers.

It's amazing how many $2 "iPhone chargers" there are on Amazon.
I think they fall into the "too cheap to bother returning" category.
Which must be a major revenue stream for Amazon these days.
