Argos Recalls Alba Tablet Chargers

March 17, 2016

 

 

High street giant Argos is recalling thousands of chargers for its budget Alba tablets amid fears they could cause electric shock.

 

The online and catalogue king has been emailing customers who snapped up three different screen sizes warning them about potentially dangerous plugs.

 

Tablets affected by faulty plugs which can fall apart and expose wires when plugged into mains sockets are the 8GB seven and eight inch tablets and the 16GB ten inch versions bought between July last year and this month.

 

Worryingly the faulty plug fiasco comes just two weeks after online store Amazon issued urgent notices to millions of parents following a similar safety alert over chargers for its kids’ Fire tablets.

Amazon is urging owners of the popular Fire Kids Edition seven inch tablets bought since September 2015 to dump the chargers, amid safety fears.
