Hewlett-Packard has recalled more than 6 million laptop power cords that could pose fire and burn hazards.

HP is recalling LS-15 AC power cords used with HP and Compaq branded laptops. The company is recalling about 5.6 million power cords in the U.S. and 446,000 units in Canada.

Hello hazelnut - Thank you for pointing this out. I checked the cord on my HP Envy DV7, and it's marked LS-18. Given the fact that I'm notoriously unlucky, it's almost like winning the lottery! Yippee!

Laptops are evil.

 

And your desktop's too big to take on the train every morning. :P

Doesn't matter, the cord isn't long enough anyway.  :lol:

 

FWIW, the 2 cords I requested online arrived about 10 days later. 

 

Edit:  They're not long enough either.
