The manufacturer received feedback from customers and the factorythat some EVOD batteries died after charge in a short time.
Kanger figured out that there might be problem with 2 or 3 batches of battery cells they got from a battery factory. There is a possibility these batteries could explode during a charge – although the possibility of that happening is very very small according to the manufacturer.
Kanger states that they initiated the recall to avoid the possibility of an accident.
Again, if you have an EVOD battery that falls into this recall, stop using it immediately.
Kanger has corrected the issue with the bad cells and have instituted stricter quality controls in regards to the battery cells. The EVOD batteries being produced now have higher quality battery cells and have had the problem corrected.
Kanger will replace the batteries that are being recalled with one of the new EVOD batteries free of charge.
