    Toshiba recalls 100,000 laptop batteries risk of melting

    Owners of Toshiba laptops take note - the company is recalling over 100,000 laptop batteries because of a risk they can overheat and melt.

    The recall covers 39 models of Toshiba Portege, Satellite, and Tecra laptops fitted with Panasonic lithium-ion battery packs. Not only were the battery packs installed into new laptops, but they were also sold separately and also installed by Toshiba as part of a repair.

    A complete list of battery pack part numbers included in this recall can be found on the firm's website at Battery Replacement Information.

    Consumers are urged to go to Toshiba's website and click on the battery pack utility link...
