Apple Battery Recall Update

This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

The official online form for the Apple Battery Recall is here. I filled one out for an iBook and a Powerbook with no troubles, except for actually having to lift up the keyboard for the iBook to find the serial number. The one listed in the "about this mac" section was actually another serial number.

All you need is your laptop's serial number plus your battery's serial number for the first page. On the second page, your personal information such as the address you want the battery to be shipped to.


Word of warning. Make sure you confirm your address is correct before you submit the second page. There's no confirmation page that will say "Are you sure this is correct? Hit back if you are not." If you screw up, you'll probably have to contact Apple again to correct your address. Either that, or camp out at your neighbor's house daily for 4-6 weeks.
