Lenovo has issued yet another battery recall, affecting 208,000 units.
The company has recalled nine-cell lithium-ion batteries manufactured for use with ThinkPad notebooks shipped between November 2005 and February 2007.
Lenovo sold the batteries with new notebooks or as optional or replacement batteries on the ThinkPad R60, R60e, T60, T60p, Z60m, Z61e, Z61m and Z61p series.
The models may have shipped with six-cell or nine-cell batteries but only the nine-cell batteries with the part number FRU P/N 92P1131 are being recalled.
"In the interests of public safety, Lenovo will offer customers free-of-charge replacement batteries for all recalled units," the company said.
"Until a replacement for a recalled battery arrives, if you intend to transport your ThinkPad notebook PC or use it in a manner that may subject it to a strong external impact, you should turn off the system, remove the battery and only power your ThinkPad by plugging in the AC adapter and power cord."
The move follows a previous battery recall for 526,000 lithium-ion batteries manufactured by Sony in September last year.
