A e-cigarette manufacturer has been forced to recall mains wall chargers for some of its products over fears they could be dangerous.

Nu Mark has urged buyers to stop using the Green Smoke A/C D/C wall adaptor immediately after it discovered that the plastic housing of the adapter may break and expose internal parts, posing a potential electrical shock hazard.

The mains charger came packaged with some Green Smoke e-vapour kits as well as being sold separately as a standalone item.

The recall only affects the Green Smoke A/C D/C wall adapter with USB port. This is a black wall adapter with a green and white Green Smoke logo, a label identifying the model as JD-050-050, and a label identifying the output as DC 5V 500mA.

The company said: “If you have a wall adapter affected by this recall, we ask that you stop using it immediately and return it to us as soon as possible. Please complete the information [via weblink] and we will send you a postage paid envelope to return the item(s). Once we have received the item(s), we will send you an item of equal or greater value.”

Anyone with one of the identified products can return it by filling in the online form here.
