Lenovo recalls its USB-C Laptop Power Bank due to high risk of explosion

Lenovo has announced a recall of one of its products due to fire hazards. The recalled product is a USB-C charger for Lenovo laptops. The company states that the affected Power Bank units were manufactured between December 2021 and June 2022. The code number of the power bank is 40ALLG2WWW.

The affected Lenovo power bank was sold in many markets, including the United States, when it was released. The problem with the power bank is that the device’s internal screws can become loose, which can lead to a possible short circuit and overheating of the lithium-ion battery. Lithium-ion batteries are an integral part of many electronic devices, but they also pose a fire hazard. The battery can react violently with the air, generating a lot of heat that can cause a fire.

Lenovo has not specified the scope of the recall of the Lenovo USB-C Laptop Power Bank. Users who have such power banks are asked to check their devices and stop using them immediately. Lenovo asks owners of the affected power bank to enter the serial number of the device and, if it is found, to request a replacement. They must send a clear and legible photo of the label, and provide shipping information and their contact information.

In addition, the old power bank must be disposed of in accordance with the applicable laws in the respective area. Lenovo said that the old device should be disposed of at a facility that accepts lithium batteries in a manner that complies with all applicable local, state and federal laws, regulations and guidelines regarding the safe disposal of lithium batteries. Lenovo has provided a list of contacts for customers in North America, Latin America, South America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia Pacific. More information about the recall is available on Lenovo’s website.
