Google and HP are recalling power chargers for the Chromebook 11 after receiving nine reports of them overheating and melting. One minor burn and one minor incident of property damage resulted from the heating issues, and owners are now being told to cease use of the charger and contact Google for a free replacement. HP previously told us that for the time being, Chromebook 11 users can use any other Underwriters Laboratories-listed micro-USB charger in its place. HP and Google initially halted sales of the Chromebook 11 last week, pulling it from Best Buy, Amazon, and their own websites.
