Certain Nokia-branded chargers from a third-party manufacturer sold after April are defective and Nokia started a free of charge exchange program. These chargers were either included in the box or sold separately.
The issue affects chargers manufactured by BYD with the following model numbers:
• AC-3U and AC-3E, manufactured between June 15, 2009 and August 9, 2009
• AC-4U, manufactured between April 13, 2009 and October 25, 2009
The problem with these chargers is that the plastic cover might loosen up and fall off. This is an electric hazard if the charger is plugged in. There are no reported injuries so far, but changing your charger is a recommended precautionary measure.
If you have one of those chargers matching the criteria of model number and time of manufacture, head to this site. There you'll find a form, which checks if you're charger is one of the defective ones. There's also a diagram to help you locate manufacturer and model number info.
It's unclear which countries are affected but the exchange program operates on a national level.
Shame on me, I forgot my own country. Brazil: Americas
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 A...
why not check your grammar and spelling as well in line with nokia checking their products? haha
