Default IBM And Lenovo Recall 526,000 Batteries

If you own an IBM or Lenovo laptop, you should know that the companies have decided to recall 526,000 Sony batteries. Hit the link, get the info and then check your laptop and see if yours has one of the batteries in question. How many millions of Sony batteries have been recalled so far? Wow.

Lenovo Group Ltd. and IBM are recalling more than half a million notebook computer batteries made by Sony Corp. after a computer caught fire at the Los Angeles International Airport, Lenovo and U.S. safety officials said on Thursday. Sony separately initiated a global replacement program for lithium-ion batteries it made for notebook PC companies, saying short circuits could occur on rare occasions when tiny metal particles come in contact with other parts of the batteries.
