Don't get shocked: Lumia 2520 travel chargers recalled

Lumia 2520 travel chargers are now being recalled for shock hazard

To avoid the risk of electrocution, Microsoft Mobile, formerly Nokia's devices group, has issued a recall of the travel charging kit for the Lumia 2520 tablet. The kit has charging prongs for the U.S., U.K., EU, and Australia. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission in the U.S., "the plastic cover on the charger's exchangeable plugs can come loose and separate, exposing internal components that pose an electrocution hazard if touched while the plug remains in a live socket."

"Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled chargers and contact Nokia for instructions on receiving a full refund from Verizon Wireless or a credit from AT&T for the travel chargers and both will provide a free replacement U.S.-only charger for their Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet," the CPSC advises.

So far, there are no reported incidents or injuries, and Nokia estimates that the recall will affect about 500 units of the chargers.

This recalls follows Nokia's U.K. and EU recalls.

Don't get shocked: Lumia 2520 travel chargers recalled

As do I!  Great thing about the recall...£80 amazon voucher!!! Got the 2520 with the keyboard for £400 - the £80 amazon voucher...that's £320!!! An. Absolute. Steal!!!

It is a great tablet as long as you disable the USB sleep setting. My wife and I both recently got them.

I wish I hadn't bought one. year too late. keyboard supply 3-4 months late. no mpeg2 decoder. no teamspeak. no hearthstone app. trying to parm it off on someone whilst I wait for surface pro 3. I had the 2520 charger today. no vouchers that I can see so far. perhaps after I send the other one back.

Honestly, by the time this hits European shelves properly it won't be worth more than 200€ anymore. I'm certainly ditching it until it reaches that price.

No, it means they only sold 500 international power adapter kits. Presumably, the majority of people who bought a 2520 would not have also bought that kit (unless it came with the tablet, which I doubt). That said, yeah, 500 is still a puny number, even if it is just an add on.

They should recall the surface charger. The part that goes in the tablet opens up at the seam after few months. I had to use instant glue on two of them to fix them.
