Lenovo Recalls Laptop Batteries

Pity Sanyo, as four batteries manufactured for Lenovo ThinkPad laptops are reported to have overheated.  This prompted a recall of 100,000 batteries supplied with Lenovo machines.  These remaining batteries are also problematic for users if the unit is dropped and the battery hits on a corner.  The last recall was of 526,000 batteries manufactured by Sony that had potential to overheat or catch fire.  That was in 2005. 

Details of the recall are on a page at the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Update:  The recall is expanded to 200,000 machines.
