The recalled products do not contain the necessary circuitry to prevent the device from over-discharging the Lithium-Polymer (LiPo) battery included inside the unit. Over-discharge causes the LiPo battery in these devices to puff or swell after as little as four months. If it is puffed it is easier for it to be physically damaged or pierced by the device in which it’ s contained, which can result in the release of the toxic solvents inside the cells. As of November 10, 2017, the company has received no reports of consumer incidents or injuries in Canada related to the use of the affected products.
