From The Dell Web site:


(From Dearest: If your notebook is listed here and is charging / plugged in, disconnect it immediately)

Dear Dell Customer,

Dell has identified a potential issue associated with certain batteries sold with Dell Latitude?, Inspiron?, XPS? and Dell Precision Mobile Workstation? notebook computers. In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and other regulatory agencies, Dell is voluntarily recalling certain Dell-branded batteries with cells manufactured by Sony and offering free replacements for these batteries. Under rare conditions, it is possible for these batteries to overheat, which could pose a risk of fire.

Potentially affected batteries were sold with the following models of Dell notebook computers or separately as secondary batteries:

Latitude: D410, D500, D505, D510, D520, D600, D610, D620, D800, D810
Inspiron: 500M, 510M, 600M, 700M, 710M, 6000, 6400, 8500, 8600, 9100, 9200, 9300, 9400, E1505 (mine), E1705
Precision: M20, M60, M70, M90
XPS: XPS, XPS Gen2, XPS M170, XPS M1710

Thanks, for posting this Dearest, my husband has one of these laptops.
He's taking his in to have the tech check the battery out.
