If you read the tech news lately you would have had to be living under a rock not to know that Dell were recently forced to recall a large quantity of laptop batteries following safety concerns. The bad news from Dell was followed by Toshiba making a similar recall around a month ago. Now, you can add my beloved Thinkpads to the list. The link above takes you to a page where a free utility can be downloaded which will check your battery to see if it is one of those being recalled. Both my Thinkpads checkout fine. So I’m not going to get blown up just yet!
