Belkin SurgeMaster Recalled: Potential For Crispy Hair Day

surgemaster-recall

By David Ponce

And death as well, we suppose. See, if you’re one of about 68,700 Belkin Surgemaster owners (model numbers “F9G930-10, F9G930v10, F9G930-10-W and F9G930-10-SN, all manufactured in 2003. The model number and date of manufacture are located on the underside of the unit. Grey models F9G930-10-GRY and F9G930fc10G-CL are not a part of this recall.”), you might want to stop using them. Like right now. It seems the device’s rotating plug has shown the ability to detach itself and expose wiring, a quirky behavior that can quickly lead to uncomfortable situations.

Contact Belkin toll-free at 800-952-1465 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or visit the firm’s Web site at www.belkin.com/recall.

    Glad I did not buy one then.

    Hmm, I dipped mine in apple sauce the other day and nothing happened. Hey, that gives me an idea! Non-conductive applesauce! Talk about genius!

  • chaosoldier

    ??? I think it may have given you more of a jolt than you thought.. I suggest seeing a doctor mcman. But then again if you felt the need to dip it in apple sauce you might have needed that before hand anyway.

    I agree chaossoldier, applesauce? This sucks for people who own one. Thanks for the heads up OhGizmo.

  • mcman
