More Battery Recalls - Toshiba is up to Bat

I kind of missed this one, but there are more Sony Laptop batteries being recalled.

Older Toshiba laptops are now being hit by the recall.

The new recall is impacting the following Computer Models or Accessory Batteries:

  1. Portege M300
  2. Portege M400/M405
  3. Portege S100/S105
  4. Qosmio G35
  5. Satellite A50
  6. Satellite R10/R15
  7. Satellite R20/R25
  8. Satellite U200/U205
  9. Tecra A2
  10. Tecra M3
  11. Tecra M4
  12. Tecra M5
  13. Tecra M6
  14. Tecra M7
  15. Tecra S3
  16. PA3191U-4BRS
  17. PA3191U-5BRS
  18. PA3356U-2BRS
  19. PA3356U-3BRS
  20. PA3475U-1BRS
  21. PA3476U-1BRS

Fortunately for Toshiba and Sony there are only about 830,000 batteries that are impacted by this recall that now totals close to 7 million batteries recalled.

In case you forgot how this started, a Dell computer caught on fire during a conference while it was video taped.  A Dell recall followed soon.

Then an IBM laptop burned up and almost exploded according to some witnesses at LAX.  Fortunately, airports these days are pretty easy going about fires and near explosions.

Then Apples were recalled and several others and its just been one long drawn out recall ever since.
