    Not sure if its the adapter or the lead thats at fault but, mine almost set on fire!
    Nothing was plugged in to the adapter, it was just connected at the wall and left laying on the floor like I'm sure a lot of people do...
    Its an amazon USB lead and the adapter was purchased direct from apple.
    I'm now looking for answers from these companies.
    As you can see, its melted and completely fused the two together!

    If you've left one end in the wall outlet and the other end on the floor then there is a possibility of something short circuiting the connector. This is THE reason why you should never ever keep something plugged into a wall outlet without any supervision or when you are not using it!
