    Amazon has began to recall six of its own AmazonBasics portable battery packs due to "risk of overheating" which could "cause the power bank to overheat or melt, presenting a fire hazard."

    An email which has been sent out to customers requested for those that purchased the battery packs to stop using them, and to return and get a refund.

    The specific battery packs included for recall include the follow

    The UK, European and US are they countries affected by these overheating battery packs, and have been recalled following over 50 complaints, and one report of a serious chemical burn.

    An Amazon spokesman has said they are unable to confirm just how many products have been sold throughout the UK so far, and as compensation are offering a gift card.

    Have you got one of these battery packs?
