Gateway Recalls Batteries For Fire Hazard

Gateway recalled laptop batteries that can overheat and pose a risk of fire. Owners of Gateway laptop models 400VTX with battery part number 6500760, and model 450ROG with battery part number 6500761 should discontinue use and submit an exchange request to Gateway.

Unlike the glut of Sony recalls in months past, this one is “not an internal battery cell defect.” — BEN POPKEN
