3/02/2007 09:18:00 AM Eastern

Raleigh, N.C. — Lenovo has issued a recall for 205,000 notebook batteries warning they might overheat and cause a fire.

The batteries were manufactured by Sanyo Electric Co. About 100,000 of the batteries were sold in the United States, the company reported. The models affected are the:

  • ThinkPad R60 and R60e series;

  • ThinkPad T60 and T60p series; and

  • ThinkPad Z60m, Z61e, Z61m and Z61p series

These models may have shipped with either six-cell or nine-cell batteries; only the nine-cell batteries with the part number FRU P/N 92P1131 are being recalled.

This is Lenovo’s second battery recall. In September, 526,000 Sony-made batteries sold with the company’s Thinkpad notebooks were brought in after one caught fire.
