Goal Zero has recalled about 118 of the “Street Charge” solar-powered charging stations. Each station can charge up to 6 devices.
The charging stations are approximately 150″ tall, 63″ wide, and 54″ deep. The station is tree-shaped with 3 sides covered in aluminum panels. The name “Street Charge” is etched on the aluminum panels.
According to a recall notice posted by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on November 22, 2017:
The weld connecting the top and bottom posts can fail and allow the top post to fall, posing an impact hazard to nearby consumers.”
They were sold to colleges, stadiums and other facilities nationwide from October 2014 to February 2017 for between $5,500 and $10,000.
Consumers should stop using the charging stations until Goal Zero can conduct a free inspection and repair the weld connections.
