HP recall power cords
This callback affects products sold between September 2010 and June 2012.
Apparently six million of the affected cables had been sold in the US and Canada, and lord knows how many elsewhere.
The cords have been burning users due to overheating. They just got so angry they rose up and punished their captors, so to speak.
Any cords with LS-15 on the side, sold alongside HP and Compaq notebooks, PC and other bits and bobs, are the ones to look out for.
Their site bugles: "HP customers affected by this program will be eligible to receive a replacement AC power cord for each verified, recalled AC power cord at no cost."
There's only been a handful of events so far, but y'know, worth getting a new one just in case the one you have now decides to melt into your carpet.
