Bosch Tool Corp. recalling 2 million drill battery chargers that can overheat, posing a fire hazard

Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) _ The Robert Bosch Tool Corp. is recalling about 2 million drill battery chargers that can overheat, causing the charger housing to melt and possibly ignite flammable materials near the charger.

The company has received one report of a charger causing a fire that resulted in property damage and 160 reports of chargers overheating, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Friday.

The recalled battery chargers, sold as accessories for Skil Warrior drills, are black with red trim and bear the word SKIL in red letters. The recall includes 9.6 volt, 12 volt, 14.4 volt and 18 volt chargers bearing model numbers 2375, 2380, 2475, 2480, 2482, 2580, 25582 and 2882. Chargers also were sold separately with model numbers 92950, 92970, 92980 and 92990 with part number 2610995852.

The chargers were sold at home centers, hardware and discount department stores nationwide from July 1994 through February 2003.

Consumers should unplug the chargers immediately, the company said. Replacement drills and chargers are available at no cost by contacting the company at 1-800-726-4202.
