Exploding battery recall
A recall is being expanded involving some exploding batteries. Batteries Plus is recalling more of its Rayovac NI-CD and Rayovac NI-MH Cordless Tool Battery Packs.
The initial recall was last December, but it turns out the replacement battery pack can explode unexpectedly.
There's been at least three additional reports since the first recall, including one report of an injury to a person's finger.
The battery packs were sold in voltages ranging between 2.4 and 18 volts in various sizes and shapes. They were sold as replacement batteries to the following brand tools: Black and Decker, Bosch, DeWalt, Makita, Lincoln, Milwaukee, Panasonic, Ryobi and Skil.
