Microsoft is gearing up to replace hundreds of thousands of power cords for earlier models of its Surface tablets, due to the fact it believes the products are prone to overheating, according to a report by CRN sister publication Channelnomics Europe.
According to the report, which can be read in full here, the vendor giant is to release a statement at 6am Pacific standard time on Friday explaining that it is enacting a "voluntary recall" of AC power supplies for its Surface Pro, Surface Pro 2, and Surface Pro 3 models. The recall reportedly applies to all devices sold before 15 July 2015.
As of October last year, Microsoft claimed to be shipping around 500,000 Surface devices per month.
