With such chargers, the plastic cover over the charger’s electronics could come use while usage and could pose a threat of electric shock, although Nokia claims that no such incidents have come to their knowledge yet, and that the issue is being handled pro-actively.
So how do you find out if you charger is faulty? Nokia advises the following three steps:
- Step-1: Every charger has a 27 digit code printed on it. Consumers are requested to Please Key in (CHG) SPACE (the 27 digit in the serial number of the charger). Eg. CHG 4956279274091613752;0675370
- Step-2: Please send this to 55555
- Step-3: Consumers will then get a reply from Nokia ‘via sms’ that will inform them whether their charger is included in this exchange program
