Potentially flawed Tesla vehicle charging adapters recalled in the US

Approximately 7,000 Tesla adapters used for charging electric vehicles are being recalled in the U.S. due to a flaw that could result in injuries or property damage, a December 6 article of Bloomberg Technology reported.

Tesla Motors Inc. reportedly issued the voluntary recall after receiving two complaints that the adapters melted after emitting excessive heat. The recall affects the charging adapters that were sold in the U.S. that could be purchased on Tesla’s online store. After receiving the overheating complaint, Tesla also recalled three other types of charging adapters with a similar design. Affected owners were advised not to use the faulty adapters and to expect a replacement after approximately three months.
