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.

Re: Power
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.

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.
