Washington: Nokia has suspended sale of their tablet Lumia 2520, fearing an electric shock, after finding 3000-affected products.

According to Cnet, the finnish company have announced that existing users in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Russia, Switzerland and the UK should stop using the AC-300 charger until further notice.

Nokia warns that the plastic cover of the charger's plug could come loose and separate and certain internal components pose a risk of an electric shock if touched while the plug remains in a live socket, the report added.

Nokia does not allow any third party's charger to be used with the product.
