On August 19th, we sent out information via email to all staff about the Dell laptop battery recall.

If you haven't checked to see if your battery is one of the recalled batteries and request a replacement, you can go to:


In addition, Sony batteries in other computer models are also being recalled. This includes Apple, Gateway, Lenovo/IBM, Fujitsu, and others.

All told, Sony is expected to spend some $250 million replacing 6.5 million defective batteries (Dell's is the largest recall at 4.1 million; Apple is recalling 1.8 million batteries; Toshiba is recalling approximately 340,000).
