Tesla Motors said Friday it will upgrade its wall charger adapters amid reports they are overheating in garages.
Tesla said the upgraded adapter will be provided to all existing and new customers starting in a few weeks.
In December, the electric-car maker issued a software upgrade to potentially avoid fires from Model S owners who plug into under-capacity or faulty electrical circuits.
"We believe (the software update provided in December) fully addresses the problem," the company said, in a statement. "However, to provide additional protection for Model S customers, we have designed a new wall adapter with a thermal fuse...Although we do not believe the improved adapter is required to address the issue, we are taking this step as part of our commitment to full customer satisfaction."
