The report says the recall is being done in partnership with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, although a recall notice hasn't been posted to their website yet. The power banks, sold between December 2014 and July 2017, have a risk of overheating, causing them to melt, which could cause a fire hazard. They were manufactured by Guoguang Electric Company Limited, of China. All known purchasers are being contacted directly by the firm.

If your smartphone's battery is running low, you can plug the handsets into the power banks and draw power from them to recharge your handset's battery.
