The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a voluntary recall on battery chargers used to charge Xbox One controllers.
The reason for the recall is that the battery chargers can potentially overheat, damaging the controller and posing a burn hazard.

The controllers were sold between February 2016 and February 2017 for about $40.
The CPSC says the charger’s manufacturer received 24 reports of the chargers overheating and also deforming the charger’s plastic cover – these include 6 reports of the chargers emitting a burning odor.
No injuries have been reported.
The company says that owners of these chargers should contact the manufacturer, Performance Designed Products for a refund.
