I would just like to bring to your attention the dangers associated with mobile ‘phone chargers, etc. There was an incident that made the newspapers in December about a youngster who was woken when his bed caught fire. The fire was caused by a mobile ‘phone charger at the foot of his bed. Apparently, it is not uncommon for chargers to cause fires. A link to the article in the Daily Telegraph is below.
I guess the point is to be very careful about where and when your children charge their mobile ‘phones and other devices. It’s also worth getting into the habit of switching chargers off when they aren’t being used. Mobile ‘phone chargers use power even when they are not charging a ‘phone.
