These incidents resulted in damage to the charging cases and the surfaces on which they were charging.
The recalled charging cases were sold from December 2019 through February 2021 for $100 to $120.
They were sold nationwide at American Musical Supply, Inmotion Entertainment Group, Micro Electronics, Music and Arts Center, other retailers, Amazon.com and audio-technica.com.
