The consumer plugged the adapter's transformer into a wall outlet for a couple hours (not sure how many). When he touched the battery charger again, it was extremely hot to the touch. The prongs that go into the wall outlet were also hot to the touch. The bottom of the charging stand was deformed showed signs of melting. The consumer unplugged the product from the wall outlet.

The wall adapter had 00B in between the adapter pins and the number: 0016 was on the transformer. UL Listed: E139110 & 4K19.
