Hot stuff

It seemed like Chiana had been a lot hotter than she used to be. I just assumed that with more stuff running on her and my tendency to have many things open at once that I was just working her hard.
I never made the connection that it was since I bought the new battery that she had been getting hotter...
Apple Announces Recall of Batteries Used in Previous iBook and PowerBook Computers Due to Fire Hazard




The recalled lithium-ion batteries were used with the
following computers: 12-inch iBook G4, 12-inch PowerBook G4 and 15-inch
PowerBook G4. Consumers should remove the battery from the computer to
view the model and serial numbers labeled on the bottom of the unit.


Computer model name Battery model number Battery serial numbers

12-inch iBook G4 A1061 ZZ338 through ZZ427
3K429 through 3K611
6C510 through 6C626


12-inch PowerBook G4 A1079 ZZ411 through ZZ427
3K428 through 3K611


15-inch PowerBook G4 A1078 & A1148 3K425 through 3K601
6N530 through 6N551
6N601

No other Apple notebook computers are involved in this recall.

Sold Through: Apple's online store, Apple retail stores nationwide, and
Apple Authorized Resellers from October 2003 through August 2006 for
between $900 and $2300. The batteries also were sold separately for about
$130.




Chiana's new battery was A1078, 3K526...

So I'm now back to the old battery that doesn't hold a charge very well while I look into getting this one replaced. An ideal situation would be to be able to just take it into an Apple store and walk out with a new one.

That's easy, you just need big pockets and a decoy.

Yeah - but having to use one that doesn't work as well is better than being set on fire! Mine is plugged into the AC most of the time unless I leave the living room :)

Man! Shit!

I haven't checked the serial number yet since I have to check the manual on how to remove the battery but it's an 12" G4 bought in December 2005.

Shouldn't matter where I bought it, should it? It's Apple's responsibility to get me a new one, right? Because it's bought in the US where I'm obviously NOT.

Fuck. I need porn.

Dell's got a battery recall for the exact same reason. I have to check yet to see if mine's included.

Just checked. Mine's fine! Scary to think of it catching fire, though.
