Mobile giant Nokia recalls danger threat chargers
Monday 09 November 2009
Mobile phone maker Nokia recalled 14 million potentially dangerous chargers today.
The chargers, bearing Nokia's name and made by Chinese battery and car part maker BYD, are models AC-3E and AC-3U, made between June 15 and August 9 this year; and AC-4U, made between April 13 and October 25, 2009. They were mostly sold in Europe and North America.
Nokia said the chargers' plastic covers might work loose and expose wiring, which could cause an electric shock if touched if the charger is plugged into a socket. It said it had received no reports of injuries or accidents related to the chargers.
Nokia is the world's largest mobile phone maker with an estimated 38 per cent global market share of all mobile devices. In the third quarter it sold 108.5 million units.
Based in Espoo near the Finnish capital, it sold 468 million handsets last year, up 7 per cent on 2007.
