Toshiba Recall’s Sony Laptop Batteries
This post is not a post from the past, nor are you are not going through deja vu. It seems the world is still suffering from battery issues and so Toshiba is recalling some batteries made by Sony. Around 10,000 batteries are being recalled as they could catch on fire. Sony is taking it in stride, as this recall is tiny compared to the last major rounds it had to suffer through.
From the press release on the issue:
Toshiba is replacing a total 10,000 battery packs after three of its laptop PCs using battery cells made on December 3, 2005 caught fire in the last 10 months. No one was hurt in the incidents.
Only 5,100 units of the 10,000 packs are potentially defective, but Toshiba is recalling double the amount to make sure all the battery packs containing targeted battery cells are exchanged.
With all the battery problems that Sony has had over the last ten months, it is no wonder the PlayStation 3 is so expensive. They have to recoup the insane amounts of money they spent dealing with all the recalls. I, for one, hope that this is the last battery recall we ever hear about.
