Sony gives up and recalls everything

Sony gives up and recalls everything

Ars Technica reports that Sony is issuing a "worldwide recall of all of all Sony-manufactured lithium-ion batteries used in notebook computers." About time. This comes on the heels of Lenovo announcing a ThinkPad battery recall. It won't be every Sony battery ever made. Forbes reports Sony is working with the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission "on a worldwide recall program for certain battery models [that] may involve additional recalls."

Sony says a flaw in the manufacturing process is to blame.

It's a little late for the 43 batteries that have gone up in smoke this year, but hey, better late than never?
