Nokia does not make their chargers. They manufacture millions of phones, does not make sense they focus on manufacturing chargers or any other accessories. So they have to rely on third parties so they can focus on making their own phones. Not like Apple or Sony Ericsson, that don't own a single factory. Even Nokia's China-made phones come from their fully owned factory, so they can keep a tight hand all over the entire manufacturing proccess. As long as I know, this is how Nokia distributes their equipment (Origin - Market): China - World in general; Mexico: Americas; Hungary: Europe; Poland: Europe; India: India and Asia; Finland: world in general. BTW, I've read somewhere their factory in China is their biggest and most advanced.

its good that nokia was able to catch this flaw before anything hazardous happened. to those haters, make sure that you yourselves are perfect in every way possible before being so critical. Even the biggest companies are allowed some sort of marginal errors.
well, look at the bright side.
at least, they didn't wait until the chargers/batteries explode.

I've been using various chargers of another brand for over 17 years and never have such problems.
No need to worry nokia frnds.. only supernova chargers are faulty... those who owns new nokai phone are dumps .and those who but supernova will be dumpest of all.. so will be only less than hundreds
Such a problem is very common to Iphone chargers but I don't see them doing such a campaign; I am not such a big fan of Nokia but this approach is ok and professional, as they cannot control absolutely everything regarding third party products...
India is affected. Nokia has released a huge newspaper advert recalling 'defective' chargers. It says that the affected chargers were given with the Nokia Supernova phone only.
I read comments of other visiters of this page like Jatinder, I feel Nokia care for there customers thats why they offer such exchange of falty products..

Thank you Nokia, this is your kind offering made you most trusted cell phone brand.
One after an other Blooper....First battery and Now charger...why not change the substandard phones that they supply first.....Cheap quality and cheap accesories.....Crape ....
It is sad and unfortunate that Big brands like Nokia does not care for the customers and consumers who buy their products, in terms of giving them value for their hard earned Money.....Giving cheap and substandard products. Shame ......

Or are u talking about those 8xxx/Vertu series? Yeh, quality is good on them but not sure how many really support browsing the web...or even a front cam for video call.
