Now refurbished Galaxy Note 4 batteries get a recall due to overheating concerns

By : |August 17, 2017 0

Just when we thought Samsung may have finally put the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco behind it, comes another piece of news about new overheating concerns. However, this time, it isn’t Samsung’s fault neither the issue is associated with Samsung’s original phone model.

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a recall for refurbished Galaxy Note 4 batteries due to overheating concerns. The issue is however different than the Note 7 one. This time around, 10,000 batteries are being recalled, and it’s only with handsets that have been refurbished by AT&T, and are distributed by FedEx Supply Chain.

The notice posted on the Consumer Product Safety Commission website says that some of the batteries installed in the refurbished phones are counterfeit and are at risk of overheating. FedEx Supply Chain is sending out new batteries to consumers who received the Note 4s between December 2016 and April 2017.

FedEx will be mailing out a new battery identified with a green dot to users who got a replacement Note 4 as part of an AT&T insurance program between last December and this past April. The company is also mailing out a pre-paid box to send back the old battery.
