Dell Notebook Lithium Batteries Recalled Due To FIRE HAZARD

Recommended Posts

From The Dell Web site:

 

BATTERY RECALL

 

(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
