Lenovo Announces Battery Recall

Lenovo, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, announced the voluntary recall of approximately 205,000 extended-life, 9-cell battery packs. In the interests of public safety, Lenovo will offer customers free-of-charge replacements for all recalled battery packs.

Lenovo has confirmed that notebook computers containing the recalled battery packs may overheat, posing a potential safety hazard to users if the battery pack experiences a strong external impact. Lenovo advises customers to determine if they are using one of the recalled battery packs.

Lenovo sold the battery packs with new notebook computers or as optional or replacement battery packs on the models listed below.

  • R60 and R60e Series
  • T60 and T60p Series
  • Z60m, Z61e, Z61m, and Z61p Series

These models may have shipped with either regular or extended-life, 9-cell battery packs; only some of the larger, extended-life, 9-cell battery packs with the part number FRU P/N 92P1131 are being recalled.

Consumers who have battery packs affected by this recall and who intend to transport their ThinkPad or use it in a manner that may subject it to a strong external impact, should continue to use their computer by turning off the system, removing the battery, and only power the ThinkPad by plugging in the AC adapter and power cord. Customers should use only genuine ThinkPad battery packs obtained from either Lenovo or an authorized reseller.

Customer Contact Information
Customers should contact Lenovo to determine if the battery pack used in their notebook PC is subject to this recall. Please visit www.lenovo.com/batteryprogram or call the Service Center at 1-800-426-7378. International support numbers are available at www.lenovo.com/thinkpad/wwphonelist
