22,000 E-Bikes Sold On Amazon & Walmart Recalled Due To Battery Explosion Danger

By

“About 22,000 Ancheer E-bikes. The lithium-ion batteries can ignite, explode or spark, posing fire, explosion and burn hazards to consumers.”

Heads up if you bought an e-bike off Amazon or Walmart.com, it might be part of a national recall due to risk of explosion.

Ancheer E-Bikes has received six reports of incidents involving fire, explosions, or sparks, including four reports of burn injuries prompting the recall of its bikes with the model number AM001907. The model number isn’t printed anywhere on the bike but can be found on the packaging and the instruction manual. If you tossed those, a water bottle shaped cylindrical battery distinguishes model AM001907 from other models.

The e-bikers were sold between January 2016 and June 2022. About 22,000 e-bikes are effected by the recall. Make sure to forward this along to anyone who might be riding one of these around.
