March 15, 2017—Performance Designed Products recalled Energizer Xbox One 2X smart chargers, because they might overheat and damage the Xbox One video game controller, which poses a burn hazard.
The recalled chargers are made of plastic and have “Energizer” printed on the charger’s label. The item number 048-052-NA is printed on the bottom of the charger. The charger can charge up to two video game controllers at a time.
The company received 24 reports that the recalled chargers overheated and deformed the charger’s plastic cover, which included six reports that the chargers emitted a burning odor. No injuries were reported as of press time.
The recalled chargers were sold from February 2016 through February 2017 at Best Buy, GameStop and other stores nationwide and at amazon.com and other online retailers.
Consumers immediately should stop using the recalled charger and may call Performance Designed Products so they can return them for a full refund.
