Hyper’s 65W and 100W HyperJuice Stackable GaN USB-C Chargers are being recalled following reports of overheating damaging the chargers.

The recall concerns specifically these two models of the system that allowed up to 16 chargers to be stacked on one outlet. Hyper, and the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), are asking buyers to stop using the device, and contact Hyper for a refund.

“This recall involves Hyper Products HyperJuice Stackable GaN 65W and 100W USB-C chargers,” says the CPSC announcement. “The chargers were sold in black and measure about 2 inches wide and 3 inches long.”

“The 65W charger has the model number HJ414 and the 100W charger has the model number HJ417,” it continues. “The model numbers are printed on a label located at the bottom of the charger.”

According to CPSC, Hyper Products “has received seven reports of the charger overheating resulting in damage to the charging units.” It notes that “no injuries have been reported.”

The HyperJuice 65W and 100W GaN Stackable Chargers were officially released in July 2021. However, they began as a crowdfunding project on both IndieGogo and Kickstart from October 2020.

Buyers of the devices from October 2020 up to their removal from sale in August 2022, should contact Hyper Products. They will be refunded the purchase price in the form of store credit.
