RECALL – Dell Laptop Batteries

14 08 2006

After people began to realize that their dell might just explode on them, Dell did something most people would do – sit there and do nothing….well it seems as though after this explosion happened to six different people, they’ve decided to take a stance.ย  This is going to be probably the largest recall ever and affects a lot of people – especially those that have bought a dell in the last 2 years.

Here is what you need to know.

  • If you own a Dell Laptop which is of the Inspiron, Latitude or Precision family and you bought it between April 2004 and July 18, 2006, your battery is being recalled.

Obviously this will affect almost 4 million laptop units worldwide and will probably affect yours…the computer I’m using was shipped on 7/21/2006 *phew*.
