Qualcomm branded Quick Charge 3.0 Mains Chargers sold with a model number of BK-372 but with no listed barcode/EAN. Please note: the recalled Charger product may differ slightly from the product shown at left.

The type of hazards presented in these recalled Qualcomm branded Quick Charge 3.0 Mains Charger products include suspected excess chemical Lead and consequential risk of environmental damage, both serious health and safety hazards. In addition, if a child comes into prolonged contact to this electronics product, there is a risk of reproductive damage and/or developmental damage.

Specifically, if this defect occurs, Lead levels can be in excess of regulatory allowances with measured values up to 51.5% by weight. Ingestion or contact with an excessive quantity of Lead may harm the health of children by damaging their growing reproductive systems, nervous systems and brains.

Due to these defects and their associated risks, these Qualcomm branded Quick Charge 3.0 Mains Charger products do not comply with the requirements of the EU Commission Directive on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (“RoHS 2 Directive”).

Consequently, a recall of these products from European end users has been ordered.
