Sony Knew of Battery Explosions Eleven Months Ago, Ignored Dangers?

. It’s been sitting on the down-low for eleven months in hopes that there would be no trouble with non-Dell laptops. Sadly, that has not been the case.

The Yamiuri goes on to state that had Sony addressed the issue correctly almost a year ago, when it discovered the flaw in the manufacturing process responsible for the explosions, they could have avoided the costly recall. As it is, Sony is looking at a loss of millions of dollars as it recalls between 7-and-10 million batteries that use their powercells.

It’s still unclear which if any other Sony personal electronics are prone to killing our readers, but we’re suggesting keeping an eye on your PSP for now.
