Anker, best known for its power banks and chargers, is recalling its 321 Power Bank. The company has announced that the product poses a fire risk due to a manufacturing defect.

According to Anker’s blog post, the firm has discovered that the lithium batteries used in the 321 Power Bank (PowerCore 5K, model number A1112) have a defect. That defect can cause the power bank to overheat, melt the plastic components, create smoke, and become a fire hazard.

The company claims that the defect is only present in a “small number of batteries” produced after March 2023. However, Anker says it is reaching out to all customers and all units “out of an abundance of caution.”
