Are these covered by warranty? I plugged it in today and it literally popped. There are black marks all around it. The socket itself is fine because I just tried my phone charger in it and it works fine. Rang the APP hotline but they're closed for the night so I don't know what to do. UPDATE: Ok, so Apple denied my request for a replacement. I just got in touch with my service center and they relayed Apple's email to me. Apparently my adapter may have shown signs of water damage which caused the explosion. It could also have been a power surge which caused it to break. I'm calling BS because it was never wet. Unless there was a puddle on the floor that I managed to miss, it would never have exploded. If it was a power surge, am I correct in thinking that it wouldn't be the only thing damaged? In the same socket, I also had a lamp plugged in. Within my room, I also had a mobile phone and my iPod charging, not to mention a running airconditioner. If it was a surge, wouldn't other items be damaged as well? I've had a power surge at my grandmother's house and literally everything plugged in the living room got fried. And is it even possible for a surge to go through a surge protector? Any advice? My service center took pictures of the adapter and the extension.
