Fujitsu Siemens is recalling quarter of a million notebook batteries which might just burst into flames. The recall, sorry "proactive exchange program", concerns Amilo notebook computers with a battery model number ending G1L1. There are problems with batteries on Amilo O, A and Pro machines.

Anyone with such a machine should stop using the battery immediately and only run it from AC power.

Fujitsu reassured punters that only four reports of overheating have been received. Replacement batteries will be free of charge.

The batteries have been on sale through resellers, catalogues and retail since October 2004. More details on Fujitsu's website here.®
