Acer recalls 27,000 notebook batteries

Posted on Friday, April 27 2007 @ 03:39:59 CEST by


Acer, world's third biggest PC shipper, announced a recall of 27,000 laptop batteries:
More than 10 million notebook batteries have been recalled worldwide since the problem was traced to Sony Corp. last year. Other major computer makers, including Dell Inc., Lenovo Inc., and Apple Inc. have also issued similar recalls.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has logged dozens of reports of lithium-ion batteries overheating. Taiwan-based Acer said none of the known incidents involved its laptop models but the company still worked with the consumer agency to conduct the voluntary recall.

The affected Acer models were sold in the U.S. and Canada from May 2004 through November 2006 for between $500 and $1,500.

The laptops possibly containing the recalled batteries were the TravelMate series with 4-digit model numbers beginning with 242, 320, 321, 330, 422, 467, 561, C20, and the Aspire series beginning with model numbers 556, 560, 567, 930, 941, 980.
