Default Sony Batteries Involved in Another Recall

Sony Batteries Involved in Another Recall

Sony and the Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced another voluntary recall of 100k notebook batteries made by Sony. Say what you want, but I think if your batteries keep getting recalled, maybe you should quit making them altogether before someone gets killed.

Affected models include: HP Pavilion dv1000, dv8000, and zd8000, Compaq Presario v2000 and v2400, and HP Compaq nc6110, nc6120, nc6140, nc6220, nc6230, nx4800, nx4820, nx6110, nx6120, nx9600; Toshiba Satellite A70/A75, P30/P5, M30X/M35X, and M50/M55; and Dell Latitude 110L, Inspiron 1100, 1150, 5100, 5150, and 5160.

A recall for batteries from 2 year ago? It's wishful thinking or a very late recall.

Once batteries started blowing up they issued the recall. It's not the first time for their batteries, either.
