Replacement of Battery Packs for “W42K” Mobile Phone Handsets for au by KDDI

This is to advise you that KDDI Corporation and Okinawa Cellular Telephone Company will replace all battery packs for “W42K” mobile phone handsets for au (manufactured by Kyocera Corporation) due to our determination that some such battery packs, if subjected to outside impact sufficient to cause scratches or dents, may overheat, swell, release smoke or rupture during subsequent use, due to short circuits. We deeply regret the difficulties caused by this problem, and would appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

 

1. Model name:   

“W42K” mobile phone handsets for au (manufactured by Kyocera Corporation).

(as of March 26, 2008, 214,349 units are in use).

2. Incidents:    We have received thirteen reports of accidents such as overheating, swelling, release of smoke and rupture of the battery packs during charging or use of “W42K” mobile phone handsets for au.
3. Cause:    When the battery pack is subjected to outside impact sufficient to cause scratches or dents, etc. the functionality of the separator (insulation sheet) may decline in the course of repeated charging and discharging sufficiently to result in a short-circuit, which may result in overheating, swelling, release of smoke and/or rupture of the battery pack.
4. Action vis-à-vis customers:
  

Notices in writing shall be given as from March 29, 2008 to all customers using the “W42K” (including those not incorporating the battery pack potentially subject to this problem) and replacement battery packs shall be sent to them. Previously included battery packs should be returned using the envelope provided.

 

We also place announcements in newspapers and on our websites.

 

In the event that the users find any scratch, dent, etc. on the surface of the battery pack of a “W42K” during their use thereof, they should stop using it immediately and contact the customer service office for the “W42K”.
