Surely this has to be one of the last manufacturers to voluntarily recall batteries made by Sony. It’s Fujitus-Siemens turn to recall the batteries powering a variety of its LifeBook notebook computers.
It affects some 287,000 batteries, and brings the total recalled from FJ, Toshiba, Lenovo, Dell, Sony and Apple to 7 million, and continues to cost Sony dear, both financially (around £265m, some analysts have predicted) and surely in terms of reputation. Sony can’t be very happy right now.
Not all the PC and other device manufacturers that Sony has made batteries for have recalled their batteries, so we could yet see more costly replacements.
Full details of the FJ notebooks affected are on their website.
