Another Battery Recall, Now It’s Panasonic’s Turn


Reuters is reporting that Matsushita Electric, the parent of Panasonic is recalling 6000 laptop batteries, made in April and May 2005, which could overheat if they are subjected to a strong impact. Panasonic have not identified the maker but they have said it’s not made by them, or Sony. No batteries have caught fire or caused any injuries and the problem can only occur when the notebook or laptop is dropped, when there’s a chance that a metal spring inside the battery pack could fall off and short out contacts, resulting in overheating.
