Microsoft will replace 285,000 power cords in Australia, free-of-charge.
The replacement comes after last week's announcement of a global recall of the AC power cords for the Surface Pro, Surface Pro 2, and Surface Pro 3 purchased prior to July 2015.
Microsoft recalled the cord after a small number of incidents where cords being wound too tightly, twisted or pinched over a long period of time results in the cords overheating. There were no incidents in Australia.
Business Customers with mulitple devices should contact Microsoft on 1300 956 757.
