Argos have felt the need to issue a safety recall for three of the Alba tablets that they sell in the UK – or more so their chargers.
It has come to the retailer’s attention that these chargers for the 7-inch, 8-inch and 10-inch tablet models could become detached while they are plugged into the wall power socket, which could then result in a person suffering from electric shock.
Affected models – If you bought the Alba 7 Inch 8GB between July 2015 to March 2016, with its Cat Number being 447/8975, then you need to stop using it right away. This is also the case with the Alba 8 Inch 8GB tablet from Oct 2015 to March 2016, with (Cat Number 439/0967), and also Alba 10 Inch 16GB tablet sold from October 2015 to March 2016. Its (Cat Number is 297/7533.
Do not worry about being able to keep your Alba tablet charged, as Argos have said that you can still use the USB cable to charge it up, and so you just need to find a suitable alternative charger.
