    Default Evod Battery Recall

    ***RECALL*** There has been a recall issued for all EVOD BATTERIES manufactured before June 24th 2013!!! These batteries could possibly EXPLODE during charge. If you've purchased Evod batteries, contact the vendor for directions on return/replacement. PLEASE stop using these batteries, this is a VERY serious health hazard!!

    Email to vendors who purchased from Heaven Gifts:
    Dear friend,

    ... This is a group email from Heaven Gifts.

    According to our customers' feedbacks and factory's information, some EVOD batteries died after charge in a short time.
    KangerTech figured out that there might be problem with 2 or 3 batches of battery cells they got from a battery factory. These
    batteries are possible to EXPLODE during charge, although the possibility is very very small.

    KangerTech attached great importance to the problem and upgraded the protection of EVOD battery and have more strict quality
    control on the battery cells. The EVOD batteries we are supplying now are all improved ones, there is no such problem.

    In order to avoid any serious accident, we and KangerTech decided to make the recall on old version of EVOD batteries,
    regardless of the high cost.

    The potential faulty EVOD batteries are as below:
    All EVOD 650mAh batteries in matte black, yellow, blue. Rest colors we sent before June 24.
    ALL EVOD 1000mAh batteries in yellow, green. Rest colors we sent before June 24.
    All EVOD starter kits in yellow. Rest colors we sent before June 24.

    Here is our recall procedure:

    1. Please stop selling all old version EVOD batteries, including those in the starter kits immediately.
    2. Please inform all your end users to stop using old version EVOD batteries immediately.
    3. We will replace all your old version EVOD batteries and send with your future order. Please email us the quantity and color
    like below:

    Replacement:
    KangerTech EVOD 650mAh manual battery,color *quantity
    KangerTech EVOD 1000mAh manual battery,color *quantity

    Also, you must leave an order message about it when you place your new order.

    4. Owing to factory's limited production ability, there might be delay in replacing with new batteries. We will try our best to
    ship out replacement asap.

    5. No need to send back the old version EVOD battery to us.

    If you once purchased EVOD batteries or EVOD starter kits, please do reply this email to confirm that you already knew this
    serious issue.

    Any question, please kinly send email to heavengifts@heaven-gifts.com for solution.

    Again: The EVOD batteries we sell online now are improved ones, there is no such problem.

    We apologize for any inconvenience to you and your valued customers!

    Regards

    Heaven Gifts

    The e-mail is only 2 hours old, so give it time to shake out in the wash. It may only be batteries sold through Heaven Gifts.

    This is why I am such a big fan of Kanger products and will always stay away from knockoffs. Product recalls don't happen when manufacturers don't have good QC practices. There are always going to be manufacturing defects. It's a product of mass production. The good companies recall the bad stuff.

    I took it to mean all certain colors no matter when they're from and ALL other colors before June 24th.
    I'd stop using it until there's more info.
