However, following a few incidents involving overheating units, EE have taken the decision to recall a specific batch of Power Bars.
The Only Batch of Power Bars are that affected by the recall is batch E1-06 – all other batches are unaffected.
If you have a Power Bar and want to check which batch it’s from, the details can be found in the model number detail within the small print on the unit, as shown in the EE illustration below.
