You heard it here first– Dell’s exploding batteries.  Well, after months of pressure and bad press Dell has decided that it should do something about the problem and is conducting a massive recall.  4.1 million batteries are involved in the recall which will cost the company over $200 million in production, marketing and shipping alone. 

For you Dell haters out there- the batteries were made by Sony.

Check to see if your Dell has one of the defective batteries.

  1. It happens. I just got my replacement battery from the Macbook Pro battery recall. Supposedly there was no danger of fire, but the thing was sure enough weak. I haven’t decided if the new one is any better. The Apple, however, is otherwise stellar.
