How do recalls work for 2nd hand stuff?

Posted 9th May 2021
I've bought something 2nd hand which was quite expensive new and it didn't have a charger when I bought it. I was googling to find out which one to buy and found that it had been recalled over 5 years ago.

I'm not sure what I should do about the recall and if I have any rights if I go to the original seller and try to get a replacement item (or whatever they'd usually do for recalls). Obviously I don't have a receipt or any proof of purchase.

I'm also reluctant to buy a charger and use it as the recall involved risk of fire when charging, even though it was working fine before it ran out of battery.
