VRURC portable battery recall

Because so many people pack portable batteries, there has been a recall on VRURC brands with built in cables.


Does Amazon send you a message if the product you purchased from them falls inside the recall? I bought 5 similar chargers like over the last two years but none specifically say that brand name.

I don’t think so, I was watching local news and it was a quick piece. Had to look online for more information about it.

I got notified by Amazon of a recall for our air fryer, so I think they would notify you.

One problem with these Chinese brands is they will manufacture the same product under different brand names. On Amazon, in fact, they will stop selling under a name brand the moment reviews start to get too low, and then they repackage the same item under a new brand name. So…this particular brand which is recalled very well is or has been sold under a different brand name.

I am currently on a mission to avoid buying as many Chinese branded products as possible…for a great many reasons. This is just one reason. I am willingly now choosing to pay significantly more. I also am having to go to a lot of extra effort in some cases to find alternatives…but using Amazon is proving to make buying Chinese branded products super easy. I am considering dropping Amazon Prime as a result.
