Important – Lenovo Battery Recall

Lenovo is voluntarily recalling approximately 208,000 9-cell lithium-ion batteries. These batteries were manufactured for use with ThinkPad notebook computers that shipped worldwide between November 2005 and February 2007. In the interest of public safety, Lenovo will offer customers free-of-charge replacement batteries for all recalled batteries.

Lenovo sold the batteries with new notebook computers or as optional or replacement batteries on the models listed below. If a recalled ThinkPad battery pack receives a strong external impact, the battery pack may overheat, posing a potential safety hazard to users.

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

These models may have shipped with either 6-cell or 9-cell batteries; only the 9-cell batteries with the part number FRU P/N 92P1131 are being recalled.

Until a replacement battery arrives, if you intend to transport your ThinkPad or use it in a manner that may subject it to a strong external impact should turn off the system, remove the battery, and only power the ThinkPad by plugging in the AC adapter and power cord.
