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.
