Even though it is currently under investigation by the CPSC, Sony says there will be no more recalls

Even though we've seen two major recalls from Apple and Dell concerning Sony-manufactured notebook batteries, Sony proclaims that there will be no more battery recalls in the future. Rick Clancy, a spokesman for Sony Electronics, says that the VAIO line of notebooks have only been involved in two reported incidents of overheating -- he was also quick to point out that one of those incidents involved a counterfeit battery.

“As far as Vaio PCs are concerned we don’t anticipate any need for a recall at this time, and that’s true from our understanding of other manufacturers we supply this technology to as well...there’s no indication that there’s an excessive number of situations that have occurred that would warrant this type of action,” said Clancy.

The previous two recalls of Sony-manufactured batteries involved nearly 6 million units – 4.1 million from Dell and 1.8 million from Apple. Sony has stated that the recall will cost the company between $171 to $258 million USD. And even though Sony doesn’t anticipate any further recalls of its batteries, the company is currently under investigation by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
