AMAZON ECHO DOT GEN 1 (WHITE) WITH AMAZON POWER BANK (BLACK)

Product was an Echo Dot Gen 1 that I had been using in my guest bedroom for quite some time. I just happened to be in an area I could see into the room, thank god as this room isn’t used much, and I noticed the Echo power bank was smoking while plugged directly into a wall outlet. I quickly unplugged the Echo and found that not only did the Echo produce enough heat to actually burn my outlet and turn it black but the power bank itself began melting. This product, as noted by Amazon, is intended to stay plugged in and always on. It was not “in-use” at the time other than being plugged into the wall.

Had I not been in the room this malfunctioning power bank could have burned down my entire house, and taken the lives of everyone in this house and all our belongings with it.

To put in perspective the danger at play here let’s take a look at the Amazon safety and compliance standards where it says the echo dot gen 1 operating temperature is between 32°-95° F. [REDACTED] has informed me that plastic melts at anywhere between 175°-350° F.
