In our first issue of this academic year we suggested that you buy a cheap and affordable tablet from Amazon, the Fire 7″. Since then they have launched a voluntary exchange and recall programme for the included power adapters as the adapter assembly may detach and create a risk of electrical shock. If you purchased the tablet then we urge you to check your adapter for the model number FABK7B.
If you find that your power adapter is affected you can either order a free replacement, worth £17.99 by using the code NEWADAPTER, or have your account credited with £12 of credit. Personally, I would suggest taking the credit and purchasing a multi plug surge protector with USB port. These devices often come with a high level warranty for connected devices which could save you an arm and a leg if something should go wrong and you are not insured.
