Reason/Issue The Adaptors (05.001.024 and 05.001.108) can be used with one of the electrical consoles belonging to the Electric Pen Drive (EPD) System to operate the Colibri and Colibri II with the EPD consoles. The adaptor can be inserted into the Colibri or Colibri II handpiece and removed like a battery pack.

There is a potential for the Adapter for Colibri and Adapter for Colibri II to generate excessive internal pressure that may cause the respective products to burst. Preliminary tests for this failure mode by the manufacturer have determined this scenario is highly unlikely to occur. There have been no injuries as a result of this issue.
