Toshiba recalls more explosive batteries

If you own a Toshiba laptop with Sony batteries and this machine has symptoms of overheating, you should probably do something about it. Toshiba Corp. has recalled more defective laptop batteries, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said last week, the latest move in a long-running problem with lithium-ion batteries made by Sony Corp. According to a warning from the CPSC, batteries in some of Toshibas Satellite A100, Satellite A105 and Tecra A7 notebooks built between January and April 2006 pose a fire hazard from overheating. Approximately 1,400 portable computers are affected by the recall, said the CPSC.
The batteries due for call back are a subset of a recall issued by Toshiba less than four weeks ago that wasnt publicized by the CSPC. Then, the Japanese computer maker listed 17 different laptop lines as potentially equipped with defective batteries. An update to the Toshiba support document a day after the initial July 17 alert added the three systems called out by the CPSC last Thursday. The agency gave no explanation for the weeks-long delay between Toshibas admission and the CPSC recall warning. Consumers should stop using the recalled batteries and contact Toshiba to receive a free replacement battery, the agency urged. Toshiba has posted a Windows utility that sniffs out recalled batteries; it can be downloaded from the BatteryCheck link- http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_dtlView.jsp?soid=1788033&BV_SessionID=@@@@1608339477.1186934831@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccceaddljkdggkgcgfkceghdgngdgnj.0&ignore_sn=true
