Toshiba Laptop Battery Recall

Toshiba is recalling 340,000 batteries for the Dynabook and satellite laptop models.

They were made from March through May of this year.

The batteries sometimes stop recharging or run out of power.

The defect is not directly related to the problem behind last month's recall of Sony laptop batteries by Dell and Apple computers.

Dell and Apple batteries were recalled because of concerns that they could over heat and catch fire.
