Just a quick note for those of you who purchased replacement power adapters for your iBook or Powerbook, the ones that cause sparks and start fires that burn you and your family alive: you’re getting a refund.

Depending on which adapter you have and for which portable, you could receive up to $79 from Apple in a class action settlement.

This is addition to the power adapter recall Apple had a few years back, but not related to the battery recall of two years ago.

Does your adapter qualify? You’ll have to wait to find out. The final ruling is expected in September, but Apple will likely have a place on its website where you can input your serial number and see if you get cash.
