Apple Battery Recall

Apple Computers announced today that they are voluntary recalling 1.8 million Sony laptop batteries due to an overheating risk that can cause fire. This should come as no surprise after the Dell recall of Sony batteries two weeks ago. The recall applies to iBook G4 and PowerBook G4 laptops purchased between October 2003 and August 2006. Apple is shipping free replacements so it is in all users best interest to exchange their defective batteries. To see if your battery is being recalled, check your model and serial numbers against the chart listed on the Apple Battery Exchange page. If your battery is on the list, follow the instructions to get your free replacement.
