#611 Reedy Quasar Pro

Product Safety Recall Notice:
#611 Reedy Quasar Pro Charger

Due to a potential safety concern, there is a voluntary recall of the Reedy #611 Quasar Pro Charger.

Two problems, a defective fuse and a program error, make the charger unsafe to use, particularly with high capacity NiMH cells. On rare occasions, an internal component failure, or an external electrostatic discharge event ("Carpet sparks"), can cause the charger to overcharge these battery packs. This can result in leakage, overheating, or even explosive separation of cells in the pack. We are aware of three cases involving the Quasar Pro charger and GP3300 cells, where cells have exploded.

This recall applies to all #611 Quasar Pro Chargers manufactured up to March 1, 2004. They can be identified by any of the following:

1) Display shows "QUASAR PRO VERSION 1.0" when first turned on.
2) No barcode label on the underside of the charger.
3) A barcode label on the underside with the numbers "611" or "611A".

If you have this charger, you must discontinue its use immediately, and contact Associated Electrics, Inc., to arrange for corrective service at no charge to you.

Corrections for the problem have been developed and tested. New Quasar Pro chargers, and chargers that have been corrected, are designated #611B, and display "Version 2.1" when turned on.
