AC Power Cord Recall

We didn’t make them, but we wanted to pass along this news about an AC power cord recall by Microsoft.

Microsoft announces Surface Pro AC Power Cord Recall

“Microsoft revealed earlier this week that the company is recalling a number of power cords following overheating concerns. If you bought a Surface Pro, Surface Pro 2, or Surface Pro 3 in the US or Canada before March 15th then you can apply now for a free cord replacement. If you purchased a device outside of the US or Canada before July 15th then it’s also affected by the recall. Microsoft’s latest Surface Pro 4 is unaffected.

The replacement affects the AC power cord that connects to a power outlet, rather than the cord that connects directly to a Surface Pro. Microsoft is planning to supply one AC power cord replacement free of charge for each eligible Surface Pro device. You can find out if your device is affected by checking your serial number at Microsoft’s Surface support site.”
