Perfect Third Inc’s WakeMate sleep aid wristband won’t be here to kick around much longer, according to sources. It seems the attachable USB charger has a tendency to, well, explode. Yeah you heard that right. The thing explodes.
An e-mail sent out by the company’s CEO states, “we were informed by a customer of a safety incident with the black USB chargers.” Yeah that is vague but let us clear things up. The safety incident? Unchecked explosions.
However, it seems the WakeMate itself is safe and the problem lies strictly with the USB chargers. Look for this item to fly back on shelves with a new charger at some point. Until then, stick with safer sleep aids.
