Are you using the wrong chargers?
In light of the supply shortages of many things during the coronavirus pandemic many people working from home have been using the wrong and often dangerous chargers for portable devices (i.e. smartphone, tablet, laptop, etc.) that are at best questionable.
You are not alone! Due to a supply and demand imbalance, many people are struggling to find OEM (original equipment manufacturer) gear and/or supplies from well-known and reputable after-market suppliers. At the very least most of us always look for the UL Listed Seal but nowadays the options open to us are extraordinarily limited.
This is the part of the blog where we normally offer a solid answer and great purchasing options. Unfortunately, we cannot offer a silver bullet solution but instead, we can leave you with some encouragement. Just like toilet paper, hand sanitizer, paper towels, and protective face masks we are starting to see greater availability both from OEM and credible secondary suppliers. Until you find the proper and safe equipment needed to power and charge your devices we urge you not to use questionable charging devices as we have seen way too many cases of fires and destruction.
