Battery Recall of the Week – It's Toshiba's Turn
It’s Tuesday so it must be Toshiba’s turn to issue a laptop battery recall in the next chapter in the seemingly never-ending dodgy Sony battery saga. The company has announced that it plans to recall some 340,000 batteries, made by Sony, that were fitted to Dynabook and Daynabook Satellite models made between March and May 2006. According to the Reuters report carried by Yahoo News the batteries will not catch fire or explode but are prone to failure, apparently due to ‘problems with storing and transmitting power…’. No word yet on how much it’s going to cost Tosh Corp, or whether the already troubled Sony are going to pick up the tab.
