The issue with the adapters is that the insulation inside the AC adapter can fail over time and poses an electrical shock hazard. Sony reports it has received four reports of the adapters short-circuiting. No one has been injured in any of the reports and all of the incidents have happened outside of the US. Sony will replace the adapter free of charge.
