EE recall the power bar
Just got a text this afternoon that those really handy power bars are facing a recall. If you have one marked E1-06 on the side, you have to take it back to an EE store.
Downside is you don’t get a replacement straight away; it’s a case of “Don’t call us, we’ll call you”. Not sure where this ranks in the list of ‘Corporate giveaway fails’. Definitely not as high as Uber’s Ice cream giveaway (I’m still waiting Uber, if you’re listening), or Talk Talk’s free broadband for life.
There is a temptation to hold on to mine for a bit longer as it’s so handy. Who knows? Maybe the recall was sparked (see what I did there?) by a nonce, charging their phone under a pillow. Yes, such beings do exist. Anyway better safe than sorry, I’m off to find an EE store.
