6/9/2017 Caller sent an email reporting that she purchased new units of the product last summer. The batteries leaked in the unit. Caller cleaned and replaced the batteries, only to have the next batteries leak again. Caller used the units the rest of the summer, and removed the batteries for the winter. Caller had the same issue with the units, and then discarded them. Caller purchased new units of the product three days ago. Caller installed the batteries, but the product did not work. Caller opened the battery compartment to find that the battery had exploded. Caller got some battery acid onto her hands, but did not develop any symptoms. Caller returned the unit to the store.
