Dell wants its batteries back

Some of Dell’s customers have not been heeding its advice to return laptop batteries that could potentially explode.

A few months ago, Dell had to undertake a massive recall of laptop batteries after a few of them began overheating and then bursting into flames. The company then issued notices with details of every serial number on every relevant battery so customers would know if their battery was affected and that they needed to return it.

On Wednesday, users started reporting that Dell had been sending out the same notice again. With its state-of-the-art manufacturing and distribution systems, Dell has a pretty good handle on who buys their computers and where. What it can never know is exactly where the equipment ends up.
