Thread: Exploding Batteries

    Default Exploding Batteries

    After the Dell battery fiasco, Alan Cox's ThinkPad battery has now went up in flames. Reading his entry, it appears the battery was third-party and not necessarily IBM/Lenovo. Even so, IBM is now investigating.

    The post can be found @ http://zeniv.linux.org.uk/~telsa/boom/

    Also, a battery recall notification feature may be added to HAL and GNOME Power Manager. See here (with notification screenshot) @ http://hughsient.livejournal.com/4509.html

    That's great... nice to see things like that implemented. Good to give heads up to those who may not pay attention to the news.
