Energizer Xbox One Controller Chargers Recalled

Third-party Energizer chargers for Xbox One controllers has been recalled due to a burn hazard.

The Energizer 2x Smart Chargers from PDP can “overheat and damage the Xbox One video game controller, posing a burn hazard to consumers,” according to a page on the recall site. There not yet been any instances of users being hurt by the charger, but PDP says it’s received “24 reports of the chargers overheating and deforming the charger’s plastic cover, including six reports of chargers emitting a burning odor.”

This recall affects roughly 121,000 units distributed in the US since February 2016, along with another 10,000 between Canada and Mexico. If you own the affected device, PDP recommends you stop using it immediately. Rather than returning it to the store where you purchased it, you should instead contact PDP itself to receive a full refund.
