Amazon Recall – Power Adapters – update 12-01-2016

Amazon Recall – Power Adapters – update 12-01-2016
Amazon is recalling Kindle Fire tablet power adapters!

Amazon's adapters for the seven-inch tablet that were bought between September 2015 and March 2016 are being recalled.

This new recall also extends to the adapters for the UK Fire Kids seven-inch edition.
The company first issued the recall notice back in March, but it has been re-issued by Trading Standards again this week.

According to Amazon, when the power adapter gets pulled from the wall socket, the adapter assembly can easily break apart and create a risk of electrical shock.

Amazon is advising all affected customers to stop using the adapter until a replacement is received.

An Amazon spokesman said: 

"Customer safety is our top priority, and we are proactively offering to replace these power adapters with a new adapter, free of charge. We encourage customers to exchange their original power adapters using the process below. Please discontinue use of your original adapter. Until you receive a replacement adapter, you can use the included USB cable connected to a computer or another compatible adapter to charge your tablet."

Contact if your power adapter is among those affected.

Power adapters sold in other countries, shipped with Fire HD and Fire HDX tablets, or displayed below are not affected and need not be exchanged.
