EE recall up to 500,000 Power Bars

5 August 2015

powerbar We told you about an EE Power Bar exploding - well, there's a big recall on them, with the company asking customers to immediately return the device to stores, looking for a serial number of E1-06.

EE are recalling up to 500,000 Power Bars among safety concerns, brought about by overheating. To find the model number, you should look down the side of the Power Bar

You should immediately return those with the model number ‘E1-06′ to your nearest store and EE have sent texts to all customers that have bought a Power Bar, informing them of this recall. It will also have more information and a website link, where you'll find everything you need to know.

You can check out more by visiting the EE recall website, here. Obviously, you should stop using the gadget immediately.

EE said in a statement: "We have 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 side), and could pose a fire safety risk."

"We are therefore recalling this batch, and requesting customers to stop using the Power Bar and return them to a local store at their earliest convenience. No other Power Bars are affected by this recall. It is our intention to replace these chargers once we have completed our investigations; we will be in touch once these have been concluded."
