Return to the age of Battery Apple's doing a iBook G4 and PowerBook G4 battery recall. I just checked and my battery's serial number is on the list. This means that I'll get a nice new battery (in 4 to 6 weeks). The process for getting a replacement was really easy, so kudos to Apple for that. In fact, it seems like it could be abused - adding 1 to my serial numbers validated, meaning I could have gotten them to send me another battery for my non-existent other computer (of course, you have to provide a valid mailing address to them).
My powerbook only ever gets really hot when the battery is re-charging. I wonder if the replacement will be any different.
(Apple also has a separate battery recall for 15-inch MacBook Pros, and Dell has a massive battery recall going on too)
| thanks for the heads-up. This will be my second free "safer than the last one" battery for the same computer. Why is it so hard to make batteries right the first (or second!) time?|
| The Li-Fiber cell is completely safe and with $1 million the company can produce enough cells to prove that it has a laptop battery that is not only completely safe but also outperforms all existing laptop batteries. The 2006 massive recall by DELL, Apple, IBM, Toshiba and Lenovo of over 7 million notebook computer batteries made by Sony would be a thing of the past. Contact me Edward Anderson at TRU Group Inc if you have $1 million to invest. |
