Dell Inc. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission today announced a voluntary recall of Dell-branded lithium-ion batteries made with cells manufactured by Sony. Dell recalled about 2.7 million battery packs and an additional 1.4 million battery packs that were sold outside the U.S.

These lithium-ion batteries can overheat, posing a fire hazard to consumers. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. Dell has received six reports of batteries overheating, resulting in property damage to furniture and personal effects. No injuries have been reported.

The recalled batteries were sold with or sold separately to be used with the following Dell notebook computers: Latitude(TM) D410, D500, D505, D510, D520, D600, D610, D620, D800, D810; Inspiron(TM) 6000, 8500, 8600, 9100, 9200, 9300, 500m, 510m, 600m, 6400, E1505, 700m, 710m, 9400, E1705; Dell Precision(TM) M20, M60, M70 and M90 mobile workstations; and XPS(TM), XPS Gen2, XPS M170, and XPS M1710.

"Dell" and one of the following markings are printed on the batteries: "Made in Japan," "Made in China," or "Battery Cell Made in Japan Assembled in China." The identification number for each battery appears on a white sticker.

The batteries were sold through Dell's Web site, phone and direct sales as part of a service replacement program, and catalogs from April 2004 through July 2006. The computers with these batteries sold for between U.S. $500 and $2850 and individual batteries sold for between $60 and $180.

Consumers should stop using these recalled batteries immediately and contact Dell to receive a replacement battery. Consumers can continue to use the notebook computers safely by turning the system off, ejecting the battery, and using the AC adapter and power cord to power the system until the replacement battery is received.
