International Merchandising Service Inc. (IMS), of Fullerton, California has recalled car chargers used with Power System Plus 3 Million Candlepower Spotlights. The car charger is incompatible with the spotlight’s battery, which can cause it to overcharge inside of a vehicle and pose a fire or burn hazard to consumers. IMS has received two reports of incidents of spotlights overheating while being charged with the car charger. No injuries have been reported. According to IMS, the recalled 12V DC car charger was sold with the Power Systems Plus/UST 3 Million Candlepower Spotlight with model number HSLR30S.
The spotlight is black and blue and has a sticker on each side that reads “3 Million Candle Power.” “HSLR30S” is printed on the instruction manual and on the packaging. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled car charger and contact IMS for information on how to receive a free replacement car charger. Consumers can continue to use the spotlights without the car charger.
