Nokia issues recall for 14 million phone chargers

Posted on Monday, November 09 2009 @ 18:41:19 CET by


Nokia announced a recall of 14 million cell phone chargers that were manufactured by BYD. This includes AC-4U chargers manufactured between April 13, 2009 and October 25, 2009 along with AC-3U and AC-3E chargers manufactured between June 15, 2009 and August 9, 2009. The Finnish phone giant says plastic covers of the chargers could come loose and separate, which creates an electric shock hazard.
Nokia has announced an exchange program for a limited number of Nokia-branded chargers manufactured by a third party supplier. We have determined that the plastic covers of the affected chargers could come loose and separate, exposing the charger’s internal components and potentially posing an electric shock hazard if certain internal components are touched while the charger is plugged into a live socket.

While we are not aware of any incidents or injuries related to the affected chargers, as a precautionary measure, we will exchange affected charger models free-of-charge. The affected chargers are those manufactured by BYD between June 15, 2009 and August 9, 2009 and with the following model types
