Again! I recall there was a similar recall a good few months ago, Topcat: when was this info that you have posted released?

and yes there was another one earlier. TC.

'Apple is voluntarily recalling certain lithium ion rechargeable batteries that were sold worldwide from October 2004 through May 2005 for use with the following notebook computers: 12-inch iBook G4, 12-inch PowerBook G4 and 15-inch PowerBook G4. These batteries were manufactured by LG Chem, Ltd. of South Korea...'

Yes there was a previous recall sometimes in August last year. One of my two PowerBook laptop batteries was affected and was exchanged. Thankfully, the two I have now are not affected.

Must be costing Apple a lot of do$h. Better safe than sorry, though
