Following our quality control review process, VTech discovered a potential battery reliability issue in a limited number of monitoring products. Models potentially impacted are VM981 and VM991. Affected units were manufactured between September 2017 and January 2018 and fall within a defined serial number range. As part of our proactive efforts, VTech will offer consumers a replacement monitor (parent unit) at no cost.

The issue is linked to a component within the battery that may cause it to expand or “swell” resulting in the parent unit chassis to bulge or the display screen to crack. We do not believe this is a safety issue. Please do not attempt to disassemble the monitor, as the battery is not consumer replaceable.

Consumers who notice the foregoing symptoms of a swollen battery or would like us to check to see if their monitor is included in the potential range of impacted products, should contact VTech Customer support directly at 1-800-595-9511.
