Apple Recalls 1.8 Million Laptop Batteries

Posted by Jordan Erickson

It looks like Apple is in the same seat as Dell now regarding Sony laptop battery usage in their laptops – they are recalling 1.1 million laptop batteries (compared to Dell’s 4 million) from the iBook G4 and Powerbook G4 lines, sold between October 2003 and August 2006. This is due to the Sony branded laptop batteries overheating and in 9 cases reported to Apple, minor burns of the skin due to the overheating. Youch!
