Passing This Along…

I received the following from an associate of mine. Depending on the Car model you have this may not be an issue. Some Car models have outlets that are always ‘Hot’ even if the car is not turned on, as they feed directly from the battery.

PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE ANYTHING PLUGGED IN THE OUTLETS OF YOUR CARS ANYMORE!  TAKE HEED FROM SOMEONE WHO FOUND OUT OTHERWISE BUT WAS NOT HARMED.  PASS THE WORD! THANKS

Hi All,
PLEASE unplug anything you have in your car outlets once you turn off your car!

As some of you may know, we had a pretty scary incident recently. Included are pictures of what remains of our 2007 Suburban.  We are all okay but I wanted to warn everyone not to make the same mistake I did.

This fire resulted from leaving an Iphone charger/docking station plugged into the car outlet.  It overheated and started a fire, while parked in our garage.

We were VERY fortunate that we accidentally found the fire, at 11pm, before going to bed and before it spread to the house.  None of our garage heat detectors or house fire alarms went off (another item to take care of on my to do list).  The boys, Jonathan and I were pretty freaked out but we’re all enjoying our new car at least.Feel free to pass this along to anyone you want.  Better safe than sorry.image001
