Panasonic CF-H2 Battery RecallPanasonic is recalling battery packs for it’s Toughbook CF-H2 tablets, sold between June 2011 and May 2012. It is also recalling accessory battery packs bought or changed during service between June 2011 and November 2011.

Check if you are affected and follow the advice given in their product recall mesage.

This follows Sony’s and Lenovo’s recent product recalls of their laptop batteries. All affected laptop batteries overheated and in some cases ignited. It must be said that in Panasonic’s case they are recalling it as a precaution.

Laptop batteries at DuracellDirect do not suffer from the same problems faced by Panasonic, Sony or Lenovo. These batteries are developed and manufactured independently. The manufacturing process is not carried out at the same factories. Also, further in-house testing is carried out by engineers to ensure that the products are safe and conform to the highest standards.
