  • Amazon Recalls Power Banks Due To Fire, Burn Hazards

Fortunately, there are about a million more power banks on Amazon right now that won't catch fire.

Amazon is recalling six models of its AmazonBasics Portable Power Banks in cooperation with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Manufactured in China, the recall involves six versions of lithium-ion battery chargers/power banks, which were sold with or without a USB charger cable and a carry pouch.

The power banks were sold at Amazon.com and Amazon stores from December 2014 through July 2017 for between $9 and $40.

Amazon has removed all the listings for these power banks from its website and they are no longer available for purchase.

Amazon has received 53 reports of these power banks overheating, which include incidents of battery acid burns and property damage from fire.

The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission says that about 260,000 units are affected. Amazon is reaching out to all customers who may have purchased one of these power banks via email. It's recommending that they stop using the product immediately.

For more information, call Amazon toll-free at 855-215-5134 from 8 a.m.to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Saturday or online anytime at https://amazonpowerbank.expertinquiry.com/ to register the product and receive a full refund. Three of the affected battery models are all significantly larger than average cell phone batteries and would have no problem causing serious damage to anything near them should they ignite.
