yet another battery recall

After Dell, Sony and Apple its now Nokia’s turn. Nokia has today announced a battery recall program for the BL-5C batteries manufactured between December 2005 and November 2006, after incidents of an overheating battery during its charging. Though Nokia claims that there have been no reports of serious injuries or property damage, it would be a good idea to replace yours if it is defective.

Lucky guys get to replace their dying batteries ;)

    Thanks for the update! We found one of our colleagues having one that was on that list! She got it replaced at the Nokia center…

    apparently nokia would also ship in the replacement battery to your home, if you call and let them know.

    wonder what would be the case if this were to happen to your iPhone, where the battery is in a moulded case!! ;)
