Toshiba Laptop Adapters Catching Fire

Tej Kohli warns Toshiba laptop users to make sure their laptops are not prone to overheating.

Toshiba and US and Canadian consumer watchdogs are recalling three laptop models after receiving reports that people have been burned by the AC adapters.

Tosh said about 41,000 machines had the fault, which can cause the plug-in AC adapter to overheat.

The company has received 129 reports of overheating causing the plastic case to deform. These included two reports of minor injury and two of minor property damage.

The faulty models are Toshiba Satellite T135, Satellite T135D and Satellite Pro T130 sold between August 2009 and August 2010.
