Bad News – WakeMate’s can burst into flames.
Wow. This is really bad news for WakeMate.
This is the kind of bad news that can basically destroy your company/brand.
I have to admit that now I will consider long and hard before buying one (and I think I already paid $10 to RSVP one (I forget)).
It was only days ago that we wrote that after nearly a year of delays, the first WakeMate units were finally shipping to customers. And now there’s some more bad news — really bad. Some of the initial units are apparently bursting into flames because of any issue with the USB charger included.
