Lenovo recalls more than 500,000 power cords due to spark, burn risk

Quote:
Lenovo is issuing a recall for more than 500,000 computer AC power cords in the U.S. after receiving reports of the cord overheating, sparking, melting, and burning. All problematic cords were reported by users outside the U.S. The current recall also affects 44,000 devices sold in Canada, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The recall could apply to anyone who purchased an IdeaPad laptop from the B-, G-, S-, U-, V- or Z-series between February 2011 and June 2012. Plain vanilla Lenovo laptops with no IdeaPad or ThinkPad branding are also affected if they are from the B-, G-, and V- series. You can find a complete list of affected models on Lenovo's website.

That sounds eerily similar to the HP recall back around the end of August: HP Laptop Power Cord Safety Recall and Replacement

Different model numbers because of the different PC companies, but it looks like the same NEMA/IEC C-5 designation for the cord, see: post #14 | HP Laptop Power Cord Safety Recall and Replacement

At home, I am using a Docking station (ThinkPad Mini Dock Series 3) which has a different power demand than the W520. The docking station works properly but does NOT charge the laptop. So, I plugged in a spare charger-plug directly into the laptop but it will not charge. My logical guess is that...
