Dell-branded lithium-ion batteries made with cells manufactured by Sony have been voluntarily recalled. Consumers should stop using the products immediately as the lithium-ion batteries can overheat, posing a fire hazard to users. Dell received six reports of batteries overheating, resulting in property damage. No injuries have been reported. The batteries were sold through Dell's website, catalogue, phone and direct sales from April 2004 through July 2006. Dell advises the use of an AC adapter until a replacement battery is installed.
