Safety is always a huge concern even in the video game industry. You should always take breaks from the screen, get up and stretch or in the case of VR, keep a barf bucket nearby. Today, Performance Designed Products issued a recall for one of their items due to burn hazards.
The Energizer Xbox One 2X Smart Chargers is a handy item to charge up your controllers. Two can be docked at a given time and even display their battery percentage. The recall describes the charging dock as overheating and possibly deforming while emitting a burning odor. While no injuries have been reported, consumers should stop using the device.
