Fujifilm Recalls 294,000 Hazardous Chargers | See If You Qualify For A Replacement
Fujifilm has recalled close to 300,000 AC-5VF power adapters that were sold with the following cameras within North America:
Consumers are being urged to immediately cease using the chargers and instead charge via USB cable.
If you own any of those units the likelihood is you have a faulty adapter. Both Fujifilm and the US Consumer Product Safety Commission have made statements about the issue, which is described as the following:
Hazard: The power adapter wall plug can crack, break or detach and remain in the wall and expose live electrical contacts, posing a shock hazard.
Recall date: January 16, 2018
Units: About 270,000 (In addition, about 24,000 were sold in Canada.)
The XP90 and XP95 were sold from June 2016 through January 2018, the XP120 and XP125 were sold from January 2017 through January 2018, the X-A3 was sold from October 2016 through January 2018, and the X-A10 was sold from February 2017 through January 2018
