I put my code in, and it says I don't have a defective battery. Mine was shipped just 2 weeks ago I might add, so yeah...
Here's a quick way to determine if the battery in your Dell Laptop is part of the massive recall. (mine was... I probably won't be able to sleep for the 20 DAYS they say it may take to receive the new battery.)
Punch in the code from the barcode sticker on the battery. It will tell you if you are part of the recall and connect you to an order form if you are.
It was quick and painless. Now if I can just survive until the replacement comes in the mail.
They say they are sending a return package and instructions for the recalled battery. I presume this will be a standard mailer. Hmmmm.... thousands of potentially defective batteries being sent through the mail. Doesn't Homeland Security have enough to worry about?
