Default Toshiba battery woes continue: another recall

Toshiba has issued its second battery recall in less than a month. This particular announcement focuses on the Satellite A100, A105, and Tecra A7 models. The number of laptops affected is relatively small (Toshiba estimates the recall at 1,400 units), but the description of the recalled product as stated by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is ominously familiar: ''Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries containing Sony cells used in Toshiba notebook computers.''
