Important Safety Notice – Recall and Exchange Programme for Power Adapters sold with Amazon Fire Kindle Tablets
The Isle of Man Office of Fair Trading wishes to make the public aware of an important safety notice which has been issued in relation to Amazon UK Fire 7" and UK Fire Kids Edition 7" tablets.
Amazon has determined that, in rare cases, when the power adapter included with the UK Fire 7" and UK Fire Kids Edition 7" tablet is pulled from the wall socket, the adapter assembly may detach and create a risk of electrical shock. Affected adapters were sold from September 2015.
Amazon is offering to replace these power adapters free of charge. Customers are encouraged to exchange their original power adapters using the process on their website.
What you should do? - Discontinue use of your original adapter. Until you receive a replacement adapter, you can use the included USB cable connected to a computer or another compatible adapter to charge your tablet.
