Replace Your Amazon Fire Tablet Charger Before You Get Shocked

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

Amazon has issued a recall on the power adaptors for the Fire 7-inch and Fire Kids Edition 7-inch tablets, because they’re not entirely safe. The company has told people to stop using the FABK7B adapters immediately, as there’s a chance they could shock you.

For now, it’s worth using a different charger to power up your tablet, but you can get a safe-to-use replacement from Amazon by clicking this link and following the instructions. If you don’t really need another adapter, you can opt for credit on your Amazon account instead.

“We have determined that, in rare cases, when the power adapter included with the UK Fire 7in and UK Fire Kids Edition 7in tablet is pulled from the wall socket, the adapter assembly may detach and create a risk of electrical shock,” said Amazon.

You know what to do. [Techradar]
