What’s the Problem?

This recall affects Victory Innovations and Protexus-branded cordless handheld and backpack electrostatic sprayers used to disinfect surfaces, according to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) [1].

“The sprayer’s rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack can overheat and melt, posing a risk of the product catching fire and/or exploding,” CPSC said.

The “Victory Innovations” logo appears on the front or the side of the green and white sprayers and model VP-20A or VP-20B appears on the battery pack. The “Protexus” logo appears on the front or the side of the black and white sprayers and model PX20A or PX20B appears on the battery back.

The recalled Victory electrostatic sprayers were sold at chemical and cleaning supply distributors nationwide and online from January 2016 through November 2020 for between $100 and $150.

If you purchased an electrostatic sprayer that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately, remove the battery pack dispose of it in accordance with local laws for disposal of lithium-ion batteries, and contact Victory Innovations for a free replacement pack.

    appropriate test standard and certified by a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL).
  •  Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for storage, use, charging, and maintenance.
  • When replacing batteries and chargers for an electronic device, ensure they are specifically
    designed and approved for use with the device.
  • Remove lithium-powered devices and batteries from the charger once they are fully charged.
  • Store lithium batteries and devices in dry, cool locations.
