We­fix. You En­joy.

Pop­u­lar lo­cal de­vice re­pair spe­cial­ists, we­fix, have a phi­los­o­phy of, “Re­pair rather than re­place.” And now, con­sumers will be happy to know that they can en­joy one of the world’s most loved mo­bile de­vices – the iphone – with­out break­ing the bank. The newly re­launched i2 range in­cludes three de­vices from the i2 iphone 5S 32GB to the i2 iphone 6 64GB – each pack­aged with ear­phones and a screen pro­tec­tor. Grant Web­ster, COO of we­fix says, “Pre-loved de­vices are the per­fect so­lu­tion for those who want a qual­ity phone at a lower price than buy­ing new, or for those who are con­scious about the en­vi­ron­ment.” Each year, South Africa gen­er­ates about 300,000 tonnes of elec­tronic waste – about 5.7 kg per ci­ti­zen. In Africa, we’re the sec­ond-high­est gen­er­a­tor of e-waste. At the in­ter­sec­tion be­tween af­ford­abil­ity and en­vi­ron­men­tal con­scious­ness lies a grow­ing trend for re­fur­bished or re­con­di­tioned de­vices and tech­nol­ogy, a rel­a­tively new mar­ket in South Africa, and we­fix are com­ing in with guns, or rather phones blaz­ing.
