Beware, Targus just recalled half a million laptop power adapters
as reported by Engadget. The adapters are actually made by Comarco and the reason for the recall is that faulty wiring could cause the connector tips to heat and melt their plastic casing, posing a burn hazard to hapless users that try to unplug it. 518 incidents of the tips heating have been reported to Comarco with 53 of the incidents resulting in the plastic casing melting. Eight incidents of a hand or finger tip being burned have been reported.
