Illustration for article titled Here We Go Again; Lenovo Recalls Laptop Batteries

Just when we thought all of the nonsense was done with it starts all over again. Lenovo will be recalling 100,000 ThinkPad lithium-ion batteries that could possibly overheat and damage the laptop. Surprisingly, the batteries being recalled aren't Sony-branded, rather they are manufactured by Sanyo. The affected batteries are the extended, nine-cell batteries that are optional with the R-Series, T-Series and Z-Series ThinkPad laptops sold between November 2005 and February 2007. The faulty batteries have the part number FRU P/N 92P1131, which can be found on the battery label. If you have a faulty battery, immediately stop using it and go here to get details on a replacement (for free).
