Apple, Dell and Lenovo to develop notebook battery standard

Posted on Wednesday, August 30 2006 @ 00:50:41 CEST by


Notebook makers Apple, Dell and Lenovo will hold a summit meeting in San Jose next month to develop standards for the production of li-ion batteries for portable and handheld devices.
The move comes on the heels of Dell's announcement this month that it is recalling 4.1 million lithium-ion batteries -- the largest consumer electronics recall in history. The notebook batteries, which include cells manufactured by Sony, may overheat and could pose a fire risk, Dell said.

"Without a doubt, standardization can and will address the issue of operation and safety called into question by the use of lithium ion batteries.," said John Grosso, chairman of the IPC OEM Critical Components Committee and director of supplier engineering and quality at Dell. "While the Committee had identified lithium ion batteries as the next product for standardization, we are going to accelerate our activities now."
