Performance Designed Products has gotten two dozen reports of its Energizer Xbox One 2X Smart Chargers overheating and warping the plastic cover of the chargers, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Tuesday in a recall notice. The reports included six users who said the chargers smelled like they were burning.

The chargers, which fit a pair of controllers, were sold between February 2016 and February 2017 for about $40 at stores and online. The affected items have item No. 048-052-NA printed on the chargers' bottom side.

About 121,000 Energizer Xbox One 2X Smart Chargers were sold in the U.S.

Performance Designed Products is offering a full refund to affected users.
