Mobile Phone Recalls

Sometimes it seems like you can't hardly get a product cut out of a master pack with box cutters before someone is issuing a recall these days.

Beside laptop batteries being recall, it was only a matter of time the batteries for the mobile phone would be recalled.

On the 14th of August 2007, Nokia issued a 'product advisory' (the company does not call it a recall) for the BL-5C battery manufactured by Matsushita Battery Industrial (BEI). The Matsushita Battery Industrial revealed faulty manufactured batteries that could explode after short circuit. 

It has been estimated that there are over 45 million BL-5C batteries in the hands of users.

What does one do when the batteries for the laptop and the mobile phone do not work? 

The question is your phone battery working ok?
