Samsung planning to ban third-party accessories?

The Inquirer reports Samsung is considering a ban on third-party accessories following a series of issues with faulty, substandard products from grey market imports. Issues include docking stations that don't dock but also more dangerous problems such as batteries that swell or even explode.
According to Etnews, Samsung is considering adding a chip to their devices and accessories to ensure that only authentic Samsung accessories will work with its products. The news follows similar rumours from Apple, which is also said to be considering such a move.

Samsung has recently been dogged by problems stemming from faulty accessories and it recently pledged to replace faulty batteries that had swollen during use. In addition, several reports of devices catching fire have further fuelled fears.

Meanwhile in a counter move, after being drubbed in a documentary on Chinese television last week, Samsung has apologised for allegedly having used sub-standard components in its Chinese products and is offering free repairs to customers.
