Toshiba battery recall

Toshiba and the US Consumer Product Safety Commission have asked for a recall of some 1,400 Sony batteries, used in Toshiba laptops. Though no injuries or deaths have been reported, the defective batteries are in danger of overheating, to the point that they may actually ignite nearby materials. The recall is limited to specific model numbers of its Tecra A7 and Satellite A100/A105 systems, and only those built between January 1st and April 30th of 2006. Affected owners should contact Toshiba for a free replacement battery.

The Toshiba announcement is just the latest in a string of recalls related to Sony batteries, extending back to September of last year, and always involving overheating. With hundreds of thousands of batteries falling under recall purview, the defects have caused serious harm to Sony's bottom line.
