Apple Battery Recall

Written By: Gary on August 26, 2006 3 Comments

So Apple has a battery recall going on right now for some of the 12 & 15 inch Powerbooks and iBooks. I qualify for two and it’s a relatively easy process. I’ll tell you the four problems with it:

  • The font size on the battery is about 3 pt, you need a magnifying glass or take a digital picture and zoom in.
  • When it asks for your county it’s county, not country.
  • The confimation e-mail I got didn’t mention two batteries, I’d have been happier if there was a good web or e-mail confirmation that listed my name, address and all the serial numbers.
  • I’m surprised that I didn’t get a warning to stop using the batteries immediately as part of the process.

    I’ve got an older third battery at work that I don’t think I ever disposed of, I’m hoping that might qualify too :)

      I was actually kind of thrilled about the recall, because one of my two batteries has lost a full hour of charge and now I’ll have a fresh one.

      Glad to know I wasn’t the only one stumped by the country/county thing… it took FOUR TRIES before I got it right. They should absolutely do something about that.

      You’ve got a problem with your template or something. I get a big pink box with an error when I leave a comment?
