    Exclamation Dell Laptop Battery Recall!!

    Dell is recalling MANY laptop batteries that have been sold over the last couple of years. You can read the news article here. Certain ones have the chance of catching on fire. I just found out one of the batteries we have for our XPS:Gen 2 is included in the recall. They will be sending us a new battery. Go to the Dell Battery Recall site and check to see if yours may be affected.

    LOL, the batteries are made by SONY apparently. I wonder if there will be any other recalls from other companies that use Sony batteries for laptops? It would really stink to see your pc start to smoke then flame up. The funny thing is that I knew about the voluntary recall that has been in place for a while. I even checked the batteries against the list about 6 months ago. Then, they said that mine were not included in the recall, now they say one of them is. hhmmmmm I wonder what's going on?

    Hehehe...but it would not be. This is a list of Dell serial numbers. But if your battery does not get hot when you are using it you should be fine. If it does get crazy hot you should look into who made your battery.

    LOL, very funny. ;) Thing is, they think other notebooks may be affected now. It's Sony that makes the batteries and other companies use them in their pc's. They are looking into whether or not Apple and a couple other companies may need to institute a recall.
