WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Robert Bosch Tool Corp., of Chicago, Ill., is voluntarily recalling about 2 million Skil® Warrior drill battery chargers. The transformer inside the charger can overheat. If this occurs, the charger housing can melt and deform, possibly igniting flammable materials near or on the charger.
Robert Bosch Tool Corp. has received one report of a charger causing a fire that resulted in property damage, and 160 reports of chargers overheating
Do these batteries have a rapid Charge(1 Hour)?. I think personally that the transformer may be undersized, to deliver the required current, hence it's overheating. What does anyone else think?. A lot of Bosch tools are used over here, in NZ, but I've never seen anything like this happen before.
