Hitachi Recalls 16,000 Sony Batteries

All those battery recalls of late has been making Hitachi feel left out, so what’s a boy (company) to do? Recall its own Sony batteries, of course. They’ve just issued the recall in their Flora 210W and Flora SE210 laptops in order to get them back before a fiery incident gets publicized all over the internets.

Oh, and unless you bought your Hitachi laptop from Japan on a business trip – or if you live there – you should be safe. As of this recall, the count is up to around 7.5 million batteries totally recalled by various laptop vendors.

The reader that can guess the company issuing the next recall gets a picture of John hunched over at his computer. Topless.
