Belkin has issued a voluntary recall of three of their TuneBase products, citing safety concerns. The recall notice indicates that the washer on the TuneBase can cause an electrical short-circuit when plugged into a vehicle’s cigarette lighter adapter and under certain conditions of heat, humidity or extended periods of use has the potential to pose a risk of fire.
The specific products affected are the TuneBase Direct with Hands-Free, the TuneBaseFM with Hands-Free and the TuneBaseFM with ClearScan. Users of these devices should immediately stop using their products and visit http://www.belkin.com/tunebaserecall to arrange for the return of their TuneBase product.
