Microsoft has yet to go public on the number of Surface Pro power cords it is recalling over fire concerns, but the US Consumer Product Safety Commission has: it’s more than two million Stateside alone.

As revealed last month, Microsoft claimed it received reports that cords for the first, second and third generation of the slab-book sold before 15 March could be faulty. It warned this was as a result of them being "wound too tightly, twisted or pinched over an extended period”.


I don't have one, but many here do, so replace that cord. It's free and you don't even have to send the old one back.
