    Apple, Dell and Lenovo Working on New Battery Standard

    Leading notebook makers Apple, Dell, and Lenovo will hold a summit meeting in San Jose, Calif. next month to begin development of new standards for the manufacture of lithium ion batteries for portable and handheld electronics. It comes as a result from the massive 4.1 million lithium-ion batteries recall from Dell, which is the largest consumer electronics recall in history. The notebook batteries manufactured by Sony, may overheat and could pose a fire risk.
    said John Grosso, chairman of the IPC OEM Critical Components Committee and director of supplier engineering and quality at Dell.
    he also noted.

    "Without a doubt, standardization can and will address the issue of operation and safety called into question by the use of lithium ion batteries"

    negative, not paying people penuts in wages to work in sweatshops will adress the issue

    companies like these three are always looking to save just that little bit extra but this time it cost them for being cheap
