Charger recall happened after complaints of overheating

Tesla has been received reports that its chargers for the Tesla model S are overheating. Before things get out of hand with reports of fires or melting chargers, Tesla has opted to send out a refreshed charger to owners of the Model S.

The new replacement chargers are being handled as a recall reports Automobile Mag . The owner of the Model S doesn't have to take the car in to the closest dealership even, apparently Tesla is mailing these out. The new charger has a thermal fuse embedded.

That thermal fuse is designed to stop the charging if overheating is detected. The chargers come after a software update was sent out last month. That Software update cut the charge current by up to 25% if conditions that could lead to overheating are detected.
