Hitachi has just recalled 16,000 lithium-ion laptop batteries due to possible overheating problems (Japan models only). The batteries, as in other recent recalls, are manufactured by Sony. We wonder if there are actually documented problems with the latest recalls ("boomies"), or if companies are just leaning hard on Sony, threatening to pull future purchases if their old batteries are not replaced.
