Apple Recalls PowerBook Batteries

Posted by Andru Edwards - Categories: Corporate News, PC / Laptop

Powerbook Battery Recall Apple is voluntarily recalling certain lithium-ion rechargeable batteries that were sold worldwide, in systems and separately, between October 2004 and May 2005 which are used in 12-inch iBook G4, 12-inch PowerBook G4, and 15-inch PowerBook G4 notebooks. Looks like the batteries are overheating and posing fire hazards Xbox style. If your laptop battery includes model numbers A1061, A1078, and A1079 and serial numbers that begin with HQ441 through HQ507 and 3X446 through 3X510, you may want to go for the trade. Don’t worry - they send first.

Mine was recalled.  My battery always would get really hot, especially when using it without it being plugged in for a long period of time.  Glad they are shipping the new one for free, and paying for postage for me to ship it back; so it costs me nothing at all.

BUrn Mac, BUrn!  LOL
