Beats Electronics, the audio brand owned by Apple Inc., is hot. How hot? Apple just announced it is recalling its Beats Pill XL speaker because its battery could potentially overheat and cause a fire. Even if your Beats speaker is working fine, Apple will give you a full refund.
From the press release:
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.
Apple is offering refunds to all customers who have purchased the Bluetooth speaker since it first went on sale in January 2014. The company is quick to note that the battery problem is limited to this one device, and not other Apple or Beats products. To collect your refund, you submit a form to Apple, and they will ship you a postage-paid box to return your Beats Pill XL. "In exchange, we will provide you with an Apple Store credit or electronic payment in the amount of $325 USD or approximate equivalent in local currency," the company writes.
