Fast on the heels of the product’s debut, Profoto has issued a recall for the B1X’s lithium ion battery over a “potential safety issue.” The flash unit itself is not being recalled.

The recall impacts products manufactured between 2017-09 and 2017-16 (year, week).

The company is advising those who purchased a B1X to contact their local dealer to facilitate a return.

In the interim, Profoto B1X users can use the original B1’s battery in their unit.
