Dell recalls 990.000 laptop power adapters

This information just came over the wire, so I wanted to get it out to all of you. I have verified this news on Dell's web site, just in case it might have been a scam.

Dell is recalling laptop power adapters (the "brick" that plugs into the wall) of certain models which were manufactured by a particular vendor.

Dell's web site states that "It is possible for the adapters to overheat, which could pose a risk of fire or electrical shock."

I happen to have one of the effected adapters and have already placed my order for a new one through Dell's web site.

If you own a Dell laptop, please click on the web page link listed below to see if your laptop is effected and start the process and get a new adapter delivered as soon as possible.

If you know someone who owns a Dell laptop and might not be aware of this issue, please forward this message to them.

Thanks to the folks at Engadget.com getting the word out.
