I don’t know what has happened to Sony but, gee, they aren’t very good at making batteries. First Dell recalls, then Apple… Toshiba…IBM..now Hitachi are recalling their notebook batteries.
My wifes friend, who is a Airline stewardess (are they still called that?) says they have to check serial numbers before they let customers on the planes with their laptops.
Fears of overheating laptop batteries continued Friday as Hitachi said it will recall 16,000 laptop battery packs made by Sony.
The battery packs cited in the recall are installed in Hitachi’s Flora 210W and Flora Se210 laptops. Hitachi will pay for the recall, according to press reports. No problems have been reported with the Hitachi devices.
