Sony to Recall up to 300,000 of their Own Batteries
Another day, another Sony battery recall. Sony today announced that it would be recalling up to 300,000 of their Vaio laptop batteries under intense industry pressure. Sony initially stated it would not be recalling its batteries, however, it appears that is not the case. Sony has joined an ever increasing list of laptop manufacturers including Dell, Lenovo, Panasonic, Fujitsu, Apple, Toshiba, and Sharp in recalls. This brings the total recall of Li-ion batteries to just over 8 million world wide. This is one of the largest computer related recalls in history.
