Recall: quarter million AmazonBasics PowerBanks recalled

We have a product recall alert! Amazon is recalling over a quarter million AmazonBasics PowerBanks because of a fire risk. The recall says that consumers should stop using them and return them for a FULL REFUND! The specific models affected by this are: B00LRK8EVO, B00LRK8HJ8, B00LRK8I7O, B00LRK8IV0, B00LRK8JDC, and B00ZQ4JQAA. Search for these in your orders or email confirmations of orders if you are not certain if you purchased them or not.

Already Amazon has setup a website that automates the return of the affected products. More details via Consumer Reports

Powerbanks take longer to charge, so they are more likely to be left unattended, thus increasing the risk. It’s one thing to babysit a phone charging in a couple of hours, but something that may need 5-8 hours to fully charge is likely to happen overnight or when you are away from the charging area…

Best Price Now: 64GB Sandisk Extreme PRO UHS-I Class 10 U3 V30 SDXC for $36 with free shipping

We have a new experimental segment (please let us know if you like it or not; your feedback helps shape a lot of what we do and what we don’t do at this blog), the “Best Price Now” segment. This focuses on items that are more of the consumable kind and don’t have big discounts on a regular basis.

If you happen to want/need the 64GB Sandisk Extreme PRO Class 10 UHS-I U3 V30 SDXC memory card, the best price right now is for $36 with free shipping at Adorama.

In terms of GB/$, among this line, which ranges from 16GB to 512GB, the “winner” is the 256GB model going for the very specific price of $125.57 by Amazon itself (it looks like the price-bot price-matching got Amazon to have this price).

If you want to max out on available storage option, the 512GB card goes for $287.55 with free shipping at Adorama.

If your camera does not support UHS-II, then you can get a better bang for the buck and possibly better performance with UHS-I. Check the interwebs and forums for specific cameras + specific card combos as theoretical and real-world performance are not always walking hand in hand into the sunset 🙂
