According to a press release by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on January 27, the iQ10 USB charging station has been recalled by LocknCharge Technologies LLC due to the fact that the device causes electrical shock when plugged into an electrical supply. One report of electric shock has been received by the company.

The defective USB charging station allows for charging of several tablet devices, and the device is 16″ tall by 16″ wide by 12.5″ long. The device also has two mini doors on the front, and the logo of LocknCharge is located on the sides of the device. The device uses a green and a blue basket to divide the tablet computers, and a white handle carries the company logo on both sides. CPSC provided the complete recall information on its website.

Consumers are advised by the company to stop using the charging station and contact them instead for free replacements.
