Due to risk of electrocution, Nokia are recalling all European model Nokia 2520 chargers, and suspending sale of the device.

Not being able to charge the device using the proprietary charger will render the device useless.


Please don't think "I'll be fine", because you may not be. Safety first!

Please visit 2520 charger - Nokia - UK


Here are some articles about the issue:

Under certain conditions, the plastic cover of the chargerís exchangeable plug could come loose and separate. If loose and separated, certain internal components may cause an electric shock if touched while the plug remains in the live socket.

So until you won't notice that part of case is missing, or you're an idiot that will grab it anyway - you're safe. End of story.

Sadly manufacturers still seem to have to cover their own asses against human stupidity

Even so, considering how much people pay for these things, you would think manufacturers would have designed their accessory peripherals to being idiot-proof. Except, manufacturing flaws such as that are being used as a means of cost-cutting in materials cost, and maximising ROI.
