Apple battery recall

In the wake of the largest ever consumer electronics recall in history by Dell, it seems that Apple are now also recalling batteries that may be affected by the Sony battery problems. So if you have a 12" iBook or a 12 & 15" Powerbook, and a battery with a model number of A1061, A1079 or A1078 and A1148 respectively, you should probably check your serial number against the list of affected batteries.




How to find your serial numbers...

However the recall apparently only applies to batteries sold inside the United States, although according to the CPSC, there were an additional 700,000 batteries of the same type sold outside the States, which is a little worrying if you think about it...

Update: This is unrelated to the previous recall of Macbook Pro batteries with model number A1175 and a 12 digit serial number ending in U7SA, U7SB and U7SC.
