Batteries on Fire? Get New Ones!


Exclusive flame-buoyant batteries from Apple!

Apple is voluntarily recalling certain lithium ion rechargeable batteries that were sold worldwide from October 2004 through May 2005 for use with the following notebook computers: 12-inch iBook G4, 12-inch PowerBook G4 and 15-inch PowerBook G4.

The recalled batteries include those with model numbers A1061, A1078, and A1079 and serial numbers that begin with HQ441 through HQ507 and 3X446 through 3X510.

I received an email from Apple today announcing the exchange program, just as my pal Addie mentioned about it through IM. It’s online exclusive and therefore affected users would need to register and fill out details in an online form. Up to 3 batteries can be exchanged per request. A replacement battery should arrive in 3 to 5 days depending on availability.
