The USB-C power banks with part number 40ALLG2WWW manufactured between January 2022 and June 2022 have been recalled by Lenovo. Customers can fill in the form and send back the product for replacement.

Lenovo has recalled the USB-C power banks that bear the part number 40ALLG2WWW, as it might be a potential fire hazard. The power bank’s screws on the inside can come loose and cause a short-circuit, which can lead to the lithium-ion battery to heat up and become a potential fire hazard.

As per Lenovo’s latest tweet and a post on its official website, the company will be replacing the power banks that have the part number 40ALLG2WWW on them and have been manufactured between January 2022 and June 2022. In the same post, Lenovo clarified that power banks produced before January 2022 and after June 2022 have not been affected. Affected customers will have to fill up a form on Lenovo’s website and request a replacement.

As per the USCPSC (United States Consumer Product Safety Commission), the battery can cause fires or explosions in case they are crushed or damaged. So the post has advised consumers to refrain from putting the lithium-ion batteries into trash cans or recycling boxes. Further, the post also stated that about 2,850 units of this device have been sold in the country and around 510 were sold in Canada.
