If you or someone you know owns a Panasonic Toughbook CF-S 10 laptop, the company might have just recalled its battery pack.
Apparently the defective batteries were contaminated with flammable materials during the manufacturing process, resulting in a potential fire hazard.
The batteries affected by this recall have the following designations:
- Model number CF-VZSU61U or CF-VZSU61R
- Manufacturing lot numbers that begin with either BAW, BBX, BC, C1 or C2
If you own a Panasonic Toughbook CF-S 10 laptop and its battery is marked with one of the above designations, this web page and this PDF file provide more details about the recall, including how to request a free replacement battery pack for your laptop.
I strongly recommend that you remove the recalled battery from your laptop immediately and run it via wall power until your replacement battery arrives.
