12pk AmazonBasics AAA (800 mAh) rechargeables for $9.60 [with Subscribe and Save] {16pk AA for $20}

If you are not afraid of the Amazon “Subscribe and Save” feature, they currently have a limited time 20% off clip-on coupon on Subscribe-and-Save purchase/subscription to this 12pk AmazonBasics AAA rechargeable (800mAh) batteries.

The same 20% off Subscribe and Save offer is also available on the 16pk of AA rechargeables (2000 mAh) dropping from $25 to $20 with the “Subscribe and Save”

NOTE that the offer on the AAA is a 12-pack and on the AA is a 16-pack…

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…
