If the battery pack floods during the dive, the battery could overheat later while above water and catch fire. LMI has received two reports of Source-12 Battery Packs catching on fire several hours after use. No injuries have been reported. If consumers notice the battery has flooded during a dive, they should disassemble the battery's retaining ring and bulkhead to prevent a possible fire. The battery packs, measuring 7 inches long by 4 inches wide, are black with a clear top. This corrective action involves Source-12 Battery Packs with the following model numbers: 800-0008 850-0001 through 850-0011 850-0013 and 850-0014 860-0001 through 860-0006 860-0008 860-0018 through 860-0031 Dive shops sold the Source-12 Battery Packs nationwide beginning in January 1990 for about $275. LMI also sold the packs directly to consumers. Consumers should stop using the Source-12 Battery Packs immediately and call LMI for free repair or upgrade information. Consumers can also return the batteries to the dive shop where purchased and the batteries will be sent to LMI. Consumers can reach LMI collect at (831) 645-1525 or for more information. [Source]
