If you’ve purchased a portable charger at The Container Store, might want to have a look at this recall from the CPSC:
This recall involves the Re-fuel by Digipower Grab and Go Family Pack portable power bank charging stations. The power bank charger is a self-contained energy source used to charge cell phones and other devices when an electrical outlet is not available. The unit consists of three (black, gray and green) 2600 mAh re-chargeable lithium-ion battery chargers that sit on a recharging docking station. Each power bank is oval in shape and measures approximately 3.75 inches long by 1.25 inches high by 0.75 inches wide. “re-fuel by DIGIPOWER” is printed on each power bank. Item number RF-TRIP is printed on the bottom of the charging station.
They were sold between October 2017 and Feb 2018 for about $40 and they are capable of overheating and a burn hazard.
The CPSC received five reports of charging stations overheating and melting.
