EE Power Bar – recall
The following notice has been issued by the retailer:
EE POWER BAR RECALL
EE has identified a very small number of incidents where Power Bars have overheated, all of which relate to batch E1-06 (written as Model:E1-06 on the side of the device), and could pose a fire safety risk.
We’re therefore recalling batch E1-06 and request that customers stop using them and return their device to a local EE store at their earliest convenience.
Power Bars from any other batch aren’t affected by this recall.
It’s our intention to replace these chargers once we’ve completed our investigations; we’ll be in touch once these have been concluded. We’re really sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
What’s the issue with batch E1-06, and how do I identify my device?
We’ve identified a very small number of incidents where Power Bars have overheated, all of which relate to batch E1-06, and could pose a fire safety risk. EE Power Bars can be identified by a code found on the side of the device. For the recalled models this code will read ‘E1-06’ (see image below).
