Dell Battery Recall

Aug - 15 - 2006
Nicole C. Engard

You may have heard this already, but Dell is recalling batteries that have been overheating and setting laptops on fire. I have one of the potentially affected laptops – but I haven’t turned it off to check the battery yet :)

Learn more about this recall and share it with your friends and family (especially if they got their laptop between April 1, 2004 and July 18, 2006).

[update] Turns out I have one of the bad batteries – so I have to wait 20 days for my new battery [/update]

  1. This battery recall actually started months ago and was a big deal in the spring (I think). Now it has resurfaced.

    Yes, but at that time, my battery was not on the list – because I checked. So the list has changed.
