EE recalling all its Power Bar chargers

So Santa's sack just got a lot lighter in the last few days as battery and charging concerns over hoverboards peaked and while it is unlikely Santa would be using an EE Power Bar, EE are recalling every power bar they have issued as a precaution.

The advise is to stop using any that you have straight away and return it to an EE store, eligible EE customers will be given a £20 voucher that is valid on the EE Store as compensation. The EE store does have alternative USB chargers available for under £20.

The recall follows a previous individual batch that had problems and it appears that EE has decided the risk of fires from the small USB chargers is too great and thus wants to cut the risk to an absolute minimum.

Not sure the Power Bar promotion was ever completely thought through.

No but it was a good way to show they care about their customers.
