Mobile Power Packs Recalled

Comments Off

Mobile Power Packs, manufactured by Tumi, have been voluntarily recalled due to a defect that can cause the power pack to ignite or explode while charging, posing the risk of fire.

The hazard is only present for those units that have not been charged.

To date, there have been two reports of small fires during the initial charge, according to a news release by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The recalled Mobile Power Pack is a mobile device used to charge small devices such as MP3 players, Blackberries and PDAs. The unit is black and silver and the front display has the word “Tumi”. The style number is 14362.

Consumers should contact Tumi for instructions on how to return the recalled item to receive a free replacement. The company warns that if the unit has never been charged, to not try and charge it. But if the unit has been charged without incident, the product can be used.

For more information, call Tumi at (800) 530-0069 or visit www.Tumi.com.
