Dell Batteries potential Fire Hazard

. By
Dell Inc. has voluntarily recalled 22,000 notebook computer batteries after the [U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission] issued a press release December 16th, 2005 stating that the batteries can overheat and potentially cause fire.

So far, Dell has received three reports of batteries overheating.

The recalled batteries were sold with the following Dell notebook computers:
• Latitude™ D410, D505, D510, D600, D610, D800, D810
• Inspiron™ 510M, 600M, 6000, 8600, 9200, 9300
• XPS Gen 2
• Dell Precision™ M20 and M70 mobile workstations.

The batteries were also sold separately. The batteries insert into the battery bay located on the underside of the notebook. "Dell" and "Made in Japan" or "Made in China" are stamped on the batteries.

Dell asks that customers have the identification number available when they contact Dell to determine if their battery is part of the recall. The number for each battery appears on a white sticker on the battery.
