Nokia To Recall 14 Million Chargers
Specifically, the plastic covers of the chargers could separate, exposing the charger's internal components and potentially posing a shock hazard. At this point, however, Nokia is not aware of any incidents related to these chargers.
The charger models involved are the AC-3E and AC-3U models, manufactured between June 15, 2009 and August 9, 2009, and the AC-4U model, which was manufactured between April 13, 2009 and October 25, 2009.

Reportedly, BYD will cover the costs of replacement. This is good news for Nokia investors; an average charger costs phone manufacturers around $1 (which makes you wonder why you spend so much at retail, doesn't it?).
