Sakar International Inc. of Edison, N.J., has recalled about 48,000 Digital Concepts Compact Travel Charger. The plastic holding the screws can break, causing the screws to come loose and the casing to separate. This can expose energized components, exposing users to electric shock. Sakar International says it has not received any reports of the charger falling apart, or of electrocution or electric shock. No injuries have been reported. The charger holds two AA or AAA batteries, is silver colored and has a sticker on the top which says “Digital Concepts” and “Compact Travel Charger”. This recall involves item numbers CH-1600S and CH-1600-RS which are identified with the date code MID#: 0801110. Both numbers can be found on the white label on the underside of the charger. Also on the underside are three screws and a retractable power plug.
The chargers were sold at Cobra Digital, Lot-Less, Ocean State Jobbers and RadioShack from January 2011 through February 2012 for about $10. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled battery charger and contact Sakar International Inc. for a replacement product.
