Lenovo is recalling 205,000 of its 9 cell batteries. The batteries were sold as replacement or optional batteries for ThinkPad R60, R60e, T60, T60p, Z60m, Z60m, Z61e, Z61m, and Z61p notebooks. The batteries with the part number FRU P/N 92P1131 are being recalled.
The batteries, made by Sanyo, could catch fire if hit hard in the corner like from a fall, the batteries could over heat causing the fire. Sanyo is defending the batteries saying “the problem resulted from strong external impact to the battery and was not a problem with the batteries themselves.”
