Thinkpad's overheating batteries spark recall alert by Lenovo

[quote= www.theregister.co.uk/2014/03/27/lenovouch_thinkpad_batteries_recalled_over_overheating_risk/]"On March 27, 2014, Lenovo voluntarily recalled certain lithium-ion batteries. These batteries were manufactured for use with ThinkPad notebook computers that shipped worldwide between October 2010 and April 2011," the company said. "Lenovo is offering replacement batteries free of charge regardless of warranty status."
