Toshiba Recalls Batteries… For The Third Time

Toshiba is recalling potentially dangerous notebook batteries for the third month in a row due to concerns about potential overheating. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said 1,400 of the lithium-ion batteries containing Sony-made cells sold with Toshiba laptops pose a fire hazard. There have been three reports of models with those batteries overheating in other countries, but none of the incidents caused injury, according to the CPSC. Models affected by the recall include Toshiba’s Satellite A100, Satellite A105 and Tecra A7. Customers whose notebook was made between January through June 2006 are eligible for a free replacement battery from the company by going to Toshiba’s battery replacement Web site
