Today Apple announced it is recalling some 1.8 million batteries for laptops made between October 2003 and August 2006, in its iBook G4 and Powerbook G4 laptop models. Overheating and potential fires is the reason.
Does this sound like the same thing that Dell just announced it is going through? Last week Dell announced it was recalling 4.1 million batteries. (See our other post about Dell batteries). Interestingly, all batteries being recalled by both companies were made by Sony.
