Tumi Recalls Mobile Power Packs Due to Fire Hazard

Tumi, the manufacturer of Mobile Power Packs, has issued a recall of the product, because the lithium-ion cells used in the product can ignite or explode during charging posing a fire hazard. The hazard, however, is reported present only in units that have not been charged. The recalled Mobile Power Pack is a mobile device that receives an AC charge in a compact battery pack that will then give five DC charges to small electronic devices including mobile phones, MP-3 players, Blackberries, and PDAs. The power pack is black and silver and is rectangular in shape. The front of it has a small circular control panel. The front also displays the word “Tumi” engraved on a silver button located towards the bottom of the device. Style number 14362 is printed on the power pack packaging. If the unit has not been used and has never been charged, please do not try to charge. Contact Tumi customer care for instructions on how to return the power pack and receive a free replacement power pack. If you have charged the unit previously without incident, you can continue to use the product. For additional information, contact Tumi customer care at 800.530.0069 between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s website at, or e-mail the firm at
