Mophie And Best Buy Battery Cases Recalled, Check To See If You’re Eligible For Replacements

If you have a Mophie Juice Pack, you might want to back up a bit: Mophie’s Juice Pack Air for the fourth generation iPod touch is being recalled for burning so hot it can potentially damage the device. If you’ve got one of them, check to see if it has a serial number starting with between TR113 and TR120, then head on over to Mophie’s web site to get it replaced.

Mophie’s not the only company with some battery problems today, though. Best Buy’s in-house Rocketfish brand battery case for the iPhone 3G and 3GS are also being recalled after 14 iPhones caught on fire while charging. You can check your eligibility here, with affected owners getting a gift card for $70 USD or $105 CDN.

    I am legal counsel for mophie.  I usually don’t post comments relating to
    mophie or its products, but I must in this case because your reporting is
    inaccurate and defamatory.  mophie’s
    juice pack for the iPod touch 4G has never combusted and cannot
    “potentially melt flesh.”  Consumers should consult the CPSC (http://www.cpsc.gov) and the mophie website (http://www.mophie.com/exchange) for accurate
    information.  Shame on you.
