G4 PowerBook, Battery Recall, Over-Heating Batteries

20050211070616633_1If you’re using a G4 PowerBook, this is for you – sit up and pay attention. Apple has been and is conducting a battery recall program for G4 Powebooks.

The affected batteries were sold worldwide from January 2004 through August 2004 for use with 15-inch PowerBook G4 (Aluminum) notebook computers.

Apple has received four reports of batteries over-heating with no injuries reported. Erring on the side of caution as this may pose a fire hazard, Apple’s battery exchange program will replace eligible batteries free of charge.

NOT all batteries are affected.

“The recalled batteries have the Model Number: A1045 and serial numbers that begin with: HQ404HQ405HQ406HQ407, or HQ408. Batteries with the affected serial numbers contain cells that were manufactured by LG Chem, Ltd. of South Korea during the last week of December 2003 only. “
