Belkin TuneBase Direct with Hands-Free TuneBaseFM with Hands-Free and TuneBaseFM with ClearScan
Belkin has identified that a component of the TuneBase, the washer, can cause an electrical short circuit when plugged into a vehicle's cigarette lighter adapter. The washer is a circular, black, plastic unit situated at the tip of the TuneBase's cigarette lighter adapter. After a rigorous investigation, Belkin has determined that under certain conditions of heat, humidity and prolonged periods of power-on (e.g. when the TuneBase is left plugged in overnight), some units with the washer have shown potential to pose a risk of fire.
Belkin has identified that a small quantity of Powerline products do not meet the European Low Voltage Directive (European Standard 60950-1) so in extreme cases there can be a risk of electric shock to the user. To ensure that all our products meet high standards of quality and safety Belkin has decided to voluntarily recall the affected products.
