Lenovo and IBM: Latest To Force Battery Recall

Lenovo Thinkpad

Will the saga ever end? It appears that Lenovo and IBM are now caught up in the exploding laptop battery fiasco.  Sony has come under intense scrutiny after a critical flaw in its batteries was found to be the root cause of fires in Dell and later Apple laptops. The latest worry for the Japanese company comes in the wake of a ThinkPad fire several days ago at Los Angeles International Airport.

As a result of the laptop fire, Lenovo are reportedly recalling 526,000 batteries made by Sony between February 2005 and September 2006. The recall covers most R-, T-, and X-series ThinkPads.
