After many months, Sony has finally issued a recall of their batteries in their Vaio laptops. The list of companies who have recalled Sony batteries now include Dell, Apple, Toshiba, Sharp, Fujitsu, Lenovo, Hitachi, and Sony. The only major manufacture that has not recalled Sony batteries is HP, which is a bit odd considering all the other manufacturers eventually placing a recall. As you may recall, Sony originally said the problem was limited to Dell, and then Dell and Apple. Seem just a matter of time before HP is part of the crowd too.
U.S. Today posted on article on October 2nd that indicated Sony will end up replacing 10 million batteries.
