A third party controller charger has been recalled by Energizer/PDP. The Energizers x2 Smart Chargers from PDP can overheat and damage the controller posing a burn hazard to consumers.
While initially no one got hurt. 24 reports have been filed about the chargers cover plastic melting and deforming. Including 6 reports of a burning odor.
This recall has affected 121,000 units distributed in the US since February. Along with another 10,000 between Mexico and Canada.
If you own the affected device, PDP recommends you stop using it immediately. Rather than returning it to the store where you purchased it, you should instead contact PDP itself to receive a full refund.
