CableMod recalls their 1.0 and 1.1 angled 12VHPWR adapters over safety concerns

CableMod has recalled their 12VHPWR angled adapters – Stop using these adapters immediately

CableMod has today issued a voluntary safety recall to users of their angled 12VHPWR adapters. The company has stated that users of these adapters should “STOP USING THEM IMMEDIATELY and that they have discontinued the sale of these products.

CableMod has asked users of these adapters to remove them from their systems, and await their official recall notice in the coming days. This recall is for both version 1.0 and 1.1 of the company’s 12VHPWR adapters. Both have a risk of becoming loose over time and overheating. This can cause the connector to melt into a user’s graphics card.

Below is what CableMod had to say about the recall on their website.

Dear Hardware Community:

It has come to our attention that certain CableMod 12VHPWR Angled Adapter V1.1s may be defective. We have since decided to discontinue sales of our angled adapters. We will be conducting a voluntary safety recall for all CableMod 12VHPWR 90 and 180 Angled Adapters V1.0 and all CableMod 12VHPWR 90 and 180 Angled Adapters V1.1 because of the potential risk that the male connector could become loose, overheat, and melt into the GPU.

This recall will apply only to our angled adapters and will not affect our angled cables.

We will be sending out an official notice of, and full details for, our voluntary safety recall in the upcoming days. In the meantime, owners of the CableMod 12VHPWR V1.0 and V1.1 Angled Adapters should STOP USING THEM IMMEDIATELY. Please do not touch the adapters while your system is running. Power down your system and wait until the adapter has had adequate time to cool down before handling.

Please reach out to our customer service if your GPU has been affected by a failed V1.0 or V1.1 angled adapter and we’ll help you out.

We apologize for inconveniencing our loyal customers. We hope that you will let us make it up to you in the future.

Your friends at CableMod
