Sounds like the Dell PS for laptops that had issues 5 or 6 years ago. I'm glad that Google and HP are ontop of this but where is the quality control? Ahhh  made in China... say no more.

If i am not wrong, in January HP agreed to pay $425,000 in a civil penalty for not reporting the problems with its lithium-ion battery packs. I hope none of the other devices are affected by this recall.

I'm always surprised more lawsuits don't come out of these overheating battery instances. You'd think someone would get hurt and get a lawyer gunning for punitive damages.
