    Did not noticed and have been using it last summer. This summer, i tried to use again and somehow my battery won’t last for more than 5 mins . I was looking to buy for replacement and can’t find a single one that match mine. I ended up here and just saw they recalled this specific model. Which I did not know. what can I do to get replacement as now? Please.
