Hewlett-Packard has announced that 6 million charger cables for some distributed products could have a manufacturing defect, causing them to malfunction and even ignite. That is why they are asking users to voluntarily remove these cables to avoid personal and material damage. The technological manufacturer has made this decision due to 29 incidents that have reported overheating problems with its charger cables in different parts of the world.
This defect has mainly been detected in HP and Compaq notebook computers, mini notebooks or some charging stations. Apparently, the measure comes somewhat late because the batch of defective products would be located and would affect those sold between the dates of September 2010 and June 2012.
Hewlett-Packard has reported that it is possible to detect if the charger cable of our equipment is within the risk group. For this we will have to check if the connector has the initials “LS-15” engraved. If so, from HP they advise that the replacement of this component be requested free of charge, although although it is true they inform us that the measure is only a precautionary measure since not all the cables that have this engraving have to be defective.
