45W USB-C PD3.0 Laptop Wall Charger Recall

October 25, 19
45W USB-C PD3.0 Laptop Wall Charger Recall

Important safety information if you have purchased a Targus APA95AU-50 Laptop Wall Charger in Australia or New Zealand. Each unit is supplied with an Australian/New Zealand AC plug head.

What is the issue? 

Targus has become aware that, when unplugging the charger from the power socket, there is a potential on some units for the faceplate to separate from the body of the AC plug head, exposing live parts, presenting a risk of electric shock.

What is the hazard?

Currently available information indicates that the risk may arise if the user attempts to unplug the unit from a power source while the power source is still switched on. The safety of end-users of our products is of paramount importance to Targus, and so as a matter of abundant caution we are undertaking a product recall of the APA95AU-50 in Australia and New Zealand.

What should you do?

  • Do NOT attempt to unplug your APA95AU-50 charger without SWITCHING OFF the power to the charger at the power source;
  • If you are not certain that the power has been switched off, seek qualified help to confirm the power is off and to remove the charger safely; and
  • Contact Targus Australia Pty at anz.apa95@targus.com or 1800 641 645 (AU) 0800 633 222 (NZ) to arrange for a free replacement for your APA95AU-50 (or refund if a replacement is not available).

Targus sincerely regrets any inconvenience caused to the users of our products.
