I wonder how this could have gotten through, unless it's a faulty batch of power supplies.

All HP Chromebook 11 laptops have been removed from sale following reports the devices' chargers had been overheating.

The decision to halt sales came from HP and Google after owners complained about broken chargers.

The two companies have also issued advice to existing owners telling them not to use the charger that came in the box with the computer.

Instead, they said, owners should use third-party chargers to keep the gadget going.HP Chromebook 11 Laptop Taken Off Sale Due To Overheating Chargers [bbc.co.uk]
