Apple recalled Belkin wireless chargers due to fire hazards



Belkin voluntarily recalled its portable wireless charger + stand special edition, due to fire and electric shock safety hazards, the special edition has been sold online in Apple retail stores and Apple and Belkin websites. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the charger has not had any accidents or injuries, and the malfunction will only affect chargers sold between July 2020 and October 2020.

The wireless charging stand has a power of 10,000mAh, which can charge mobile phones that support it at a speed of 10W, but problems with the “power supply” may cause the device to overheat, making it easy to catch fire or electric shock. Belkin advises anyone who purchases the device to stop using the device and disconnect the power source. The company will also refund anyone who has the affected charger.

In the grand plan of Apple iPhone, wireless charging has only been provided since the launch of iPhone 8 and iPhone X in 201

7. In the same event, Apple announced AirPower, a wireless charging pad that could charge multiple devices at the same time. However, it was eventually cancelled because it did not meet Apple’s “high standards”. Rumors later pointed out that overheating of the charging coil of the device was part of Apple’s motivation to cancel sales. All of this can be said that wireless charging is more difficult than it seems, and Belkin’s recall is another example of possible problems in seemingly simple products.

If you own a charger affected by the recall, you can submit a form on Belkin’s support site to request a refund.
