Several models of power banks sold by Officeworks under the Comsol brand have been recalled due to the risk of fire.

The power banks recalled are:

According to the recall notices, "Due to an internal fault the battery in the power bank may overheat and catch fire", leading to a risk of "serious injury or death."

Owners of these power banks should stop using them immediately, and return them to Officeworks for a full refund.

They were variously sold between May 2017 and January 2021.
