Notice Date: July 12, 2022
Product Affected: Gscan-3, Opti-Aim (Gscan-3 base)
Condition: There is a possible fire hazard with Gscan-3 units due to the lithium-ion battery overheating during use or while charging.
Actions To Take: Customers with either a Gscan-3 or an Opti-Aim version Gscan-3 are directed to immediately remove the lithium-Ion battery from their GScan-3 tools. There have been reported incidents of the batteries overheating, damaging the scan tool and in some cases catching on fire. This situation is occurring even after a Battery Exchange Program was performed in 2021.
The manufacturer of the tool GIT, will be supplying all users with a new design battery and a new design rear battery cover. Until these components are received by CAS and shipped to each end user, operation of the GScan-3 can be accomplished without the internal battery. It is expected CAS will begin shipping the replacement batteries and covers in early September.
Call CAS Tech Support or your local CAS Rep if you require assistance in removing the battery.
