Overheating batteries prompt Apple to recall Beats Pill XL speakers
About 222,000 Beats Pill XL speakers are being recalled by Apple after learning the product’s battery may overheat and catch fire, a report by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) stated on June 3.
The recalled Beats Pill XL speakers have the Beats “b” logo written on the speaker grille and the words “beats pill XL” written on the product handle. The defective speakers come in five different colors: black, white, pink, metallic sky and titanium, and were sold in different Apple Retail Stores and other authorized outlets across the U.S. between January 2014 and June 2015 for about $300.
Affected consumers may get a $325 Apple Store credit or electronic payment refund, and they will also get a postage-paid box to return the defective speaker to the company.
