Denver, CO — About 16,600 Lithium-Ion batteries used with Magicshine bicycle lights in the United States and 1,500 batteries in Canada were voluntarily recalled for fire hazards by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Health Canada and the distributor, Datseplots Inc., dba GeoManGear. The CPSC announced the product recall on April 19, 2011.
The product recall was issued after discovering that the lithium-ion batteries can overheat, which poses a fire hazard to consumers.
“This recall involves Magicshine Series I and Series II lithium-ion batteries. The batteries were sold with bicycle light sets with the following models: Magicshine 900 Lumen (MJ-808), 1400 Lumen (MJ-816) and Tail light (MJ818). The batteries were also sold separately. The Series I battery comes in a nylon pack enclosure and the Series II in an aluminum pack enclosure inserted into a fabric sleeve. The model number is found on the product packaging. The Magicshine logo is found on the sleeve covering of the Series II battery,” reported the CPSC press release.
GeoManGear is notifying all known consumers about the product recall. Those who have not been contacted should visit www.MagicshineBatteryRecall.com to register to receive a free replacement battery.
