Dell August Battery Recall

Though Dell previously issued a battery recall at the end of 2005, the company has been under increasing scrutiny for numerous reports of its laptops' batteries overheating and catching fire with little warning. Regardless of whether or not the reports were evidence of a systemic flaw in the manufacturing process, Dell is taking preventative measures and has issued an unprecedented recall of 4.1 million batteries used in its laptops of recent years. The models affected include many Inspiron, Latitude, Precision, and XPS systems. Some batteries sold apart from laptops are also affected. Dell is asking anyone whose hardware is affected to visit the official battery recall website or call the company, and to immediately stop using defective batteries once replacements are shipping.
