Toshiba and Dell add more batteries to the recall list

It seems as though the fears of exploding Sony batteries is spreading to more and more notebook manufacturers and is affecting more product lines. Today, Dell announced that it is recalling another 100,000 notebook batteries in addition to the 4.1 million recalled last month.

To compound matters even further, Toshiba made an announcement today that it is recalling another 830,000 batteries at Sony's request. And if you recall, Lenovo made an announcement yesterday that it was recalling 526,000 batteries used in its ThinkPad T43, T43p, T60, R51e, R52, R60, R60e, X60 and X60s models.

Here's the current tally on the "Total Recall" of Sony-manufactured batteries:

Dell: 4.2 million
Apple: 1.8 million
Toshiba: 1.1 million (340,000 batteries were already recalled earlier this month)
IBM/Lenovo: 526,000
Matsusita/Panasonic: 6,000

We're sure this isn't going to be the last that we hear of Sony battery recalls. The next recall is just another explosion away.
