Microsoft to announce recall of Surface Pro power cords due to overheating threat
What brings us jogging through memory lane is a report that Microsoft will recall the power cord on the Surface Pro, Surface Pro 2 and Surface Pro 3 models sold prior to July 2015. According to Microsoft, some of the cords on these models have ended up twisted too tightly, or bent. As a result, these cords are in danger of overheating and starting a fire.
While a statement from Microsoft says that a very small number of Surface Pro users have had an issue, the potential is there for more widespread problems. Microsoft said that it will announce the details of the recall shortly, with some expecting the announcement to take place this coming Friday, January 22nd. Those turning in their power cord will receive a new one that has been improved to prevent the problem from occurring again.
If you own one of the affected models, make sure you check in often. As soon as Microsoft reveals the details of the power cord exchange, we will pass it along to you.
