Nokia Suspends Lumia 2520 Sales Amid Product Safety Concerns

Nokia has announced sales of the Lumia 2520 Windows RT 8.1 tablet has been suspended in certain markets, including the UK, as a result of a product safety issue having been discovered with the AC-300 charger included with the Lumia 2520 that can potentially cause an electric shock.

The full list of markets affected by this safety issue include the UK, Germany, Finland, Denmark, Austria, Russia and Switzerland. In addition, the Lumia 2520 travel charger accessory sold in the markets above, as well as in the US, are affected.

Nokia has strongly advised all customers using affected chargers and/or travel adapters to stop using them immediately. Lumia 2520 users can subscribe to receive updates from Nokia regarding the AC-300 charger as they become available here.

The company states that the plastic cover of the charger’s exchangeable plug can become loose and separate, which can potentially cause an electric shock if touched while the plug remains in the socket.
