Notebook companies to determine li-ion battery standard

Posted on Sunday, September 24 2006 @ 11:16:15 CEST by

Notebook makers are discussing a new lithium-ion battery standard:
New lithium-ion battery standards were the topic of discussion at a meeting sponsored by the IPC's OEM Critical Components Committee and chaired by Dell this month. Among those in attendance at the meeting in San Jose were representatives from Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Polycom, Inc., and Lenovo.

Notice someone missing? That's right, Apple did not appear on the IPC's list of attendees despite having announced a recall of nearly 1.8 million lithium-ion batteries last August. Apple was originally expected to attend the meeting, so it's unclear as to whether they simply did not or whether the IPC just left them off the list in the press release. Sony, whose batteries stand right at the center of this year's battery recall debacle, was not invited to the meeting, according to a spokesperson for the company.
