Apple Issues Recall of All Beats Pill XL Speakers

Apple just announced a recall for all Beats Pill XL Speakers. There is a fire hazard.

Apple today announced a voluntary recall of Beats Pill XL speakers, including a refund for customers. Apple has determined that, in rare cases, the battery in the Beats Pill XL may overheat and pose a fire safety risk. The recall does not affect any other Beats or Apple products.

Because customer safety is the company’s top priority, Apple is asking customers to stop using their Beats Pill XL speakers. Customers will receive an Apple Store credit or electronic payment of $325, after returning their Beats Pill XL.

The Beats Pill XL can be identified by the Beats “b” logo on the speaker grille and the words “beats pill XL” on the handle. The product is sold in five colors: black, metallic sky, pink, titanium and white.

The Beats Pill XL was introduced by Beats by Dre in November 2013. Apple acquired Beats in 2014. Apple makes a point that they did inherited this product through the Beats acquisition and did not design it. The recall details and steps to take are described here.

The Wall Street Journal reports that 222,000 units of the Pill XL speaker are affected by this recall. There have been eight reports that the batteries overheated and one owner got burnt.
