Mizco International Recalls Power Bank Charging Stations Due to Fire and Burn Hazards

Mizco International has issued a recall for portable power bank charging stations because as the unit is being charged, it can overheat, posing fire and burn hazards.

This recall involves the Re-fuel by Digipower Grab and Go Family Pack portable power bank charging stations sold exclusively at The Container Store stores nationwide from October 2017 through February 2018 for about $40.  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.

The firm has received five reports of power bank charging stations overheating and melting. No injuries have been reported. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled charging stations and contact The Container Store for instructions on how to receive a full refund.
