Belkin has issued a voluntary recall for its power bank/charging, the ‘Portable Wireless Charger + Stand Special Edition,’ related to its power supply unit potentially overheating and causing a fire.
No injuries or property damage has been reported yet, and Belkin is offering a full refund of the charger. The Portable Wireless Charger + Stand Special Edition features the model number ‘WIZOO3,’ a 10,000 mAh capacity and works with all Qi-compatible smartphones.
What makes this charger unique is that the actual stand you place your smartphone on is a Qi-compatible battery pack, allowing you to take its charging power on the go.
While the charger works with Android devices, it’s designed to be compatible with the iPhone 8 and newer.
Belkin stresses that it’s important people stop using the device immediately and disconnect it from its power supply. To get a refund, you can submit a request at this link.
