Dell recalls TB15 thunderbolt docking station
I have ordered a Dell XPS 15 9550 notebook some weeks back, together with it I have also purchased a TB15 dock to plug my Ethernet cable, external screen, mouse and keyboard.
For some reason although Dell sold me and charged for the dock and was supposed to ship it together with my notebook, the Dock was never shipped. When I contacted my sales contact in Germany she told me I will get a refund because the dock has been recalled.
I have also pinged @DellCares over twitter and they have confirmed the same.
Update with further comments from @DellCares:
The Dell TB15 is a USB Type-C connector Thunderbolt Dock which apparently has been having several issues according to this Reddit.
It is not completely clear at this stage if the recall is related only to the “unsold” items in stock or also to the ones the customers already purchased. The recall page at Dell doesn’t mention the TB15 recall, but also seems to have been updated in 2006 the last time :(.
