Xbox One Controller Charger Recalled Due To Safety Concerns

PDP, the popular creator of various video game peripherals, has announced a recall of one of its products.

The company is warning users of the Energizer Xbox One 2X Smart Charger that the product can overheat and cause damage to Xbox One controllers and, more importantly, present a burn hazard.
