Sony recalls computer AC adapters
Sony has recalled its bunch of VAIO computer AC adapters due to a shock hazard by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, where there are currently around 69,000 of these puppies around in circulation. Apparently, the insulation within the AC adapter is capable of failing over time which might pose as an electrical shock hazard to consumers. Currently, Sony has already received four reports of adapters short circuiting, but good thing there has been no such incidents Stateside just yet. If you happen to own the Sony VGP-AC19V17 AC adapter when purchasing it from September 2005 till October 2009, you should return the said AC adapter to Sony and obtain your free replacement.
