What’s the Problem?
This recall affects about 2.5 million Ellipsis Jetpack mobile hotspots imported by Franklin Wireless Corp., according to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC).
“The lithium ion battery in the hotspots can overheat, posing fire and burn hazards,” CPSC said.
The word “verizon” is printed below the digital display window on the front of the recalled hotspots. The charger provided with the recalled Jetpacks has a sticker on the wire that states: Compatible: FWC MHS900L, Model: FWCR900TVL, DC151030.
The recalled hotspots were sold online and at Verizon stores nationwide from April 2017 through March 2021 for between $50 to $150.
If you purchased a hotspot that is affected by this recall, you should contact Verizon for information about how to obtain a free replacement hotspot.
This recall began on April 8, 2021.
