Hitachi is the latest to recall Sony batteries

Hitachi has decided to join Sony's Global Replacement Program despite the fact that there have been no reports of battery fires with its notebooks. The company announced today that it plans to recall 16,000 batteries used in Japanese market Flora 210W and Flora SE210 notebooks.

Hitachi recalled the batteries as a precaution so that its customers could have the peace of mind that its laptops weren't in any risk of danger. By recalling the batteries early, Hitachi can get financial and logistical help from Sony on replacing the batteries and the company can hopefully stave off any potential fires by getting replacements in a timely fashion.

So far we've seen a total of over 7.5 million Sony batteries recalled with Dell leading the pack at 4.2 million units. That being said, we can't help but wonder if Hewlett Packard will eventually cave in and place its batteries on the recall list. A recall from HP could easily push the total to over 10 million units.
