Beats Pill XL are a fire hazard!

3 June 2015

beatsbydrdrelogo Do you have some Beats’ Pill XL speakers? Have you been thinking that the mixtapes you've been playing through them are absolute fire? Have you been listening to Heat Wave and thinking it is actually getting Hot in Herre?

Well, that might have something to do with the fact that your speakers are a massive fire hazard and you should stop using them immediately. No. This is not a drill.

Apple are recalling Beats’ largest Pill speaker because the batteries are overheating and it might cause the device to set on fire.

"Apple has determined that, in rare cases, the battery in the Beats Pill XL Speaker may overheat and pose a fire safety risk," says Apple’s recall website. "If you have a Beats Pill XL Speaker, please stop using it."

You don't want to be listening to 'Burning Down The House' through it and then end up a desperately ironic and amusing footnote in a local newspaper, do you?

To sort this out, click here and submit a request to return it to Apple. You have to do it through the website, so don't think about taking it to an Apple shop, because they won't take the speakers off your hands. Via the website, you'll get sent a box to return it in and then you'll get £215 in Apple Store credit or they'll wire you the cash.
