Toshiba has released a program that will check the battery type in use on laptops and tablet PCs manufactured by the company, and inform the user if any action is required for a battery replacement, as part of a worldwide recall.
The subject battery packs identified by Sony were used in certain batches of the following Toshiba notebook computer models:
Satellite A50, R10
Tecra A2, A3X, M3, M4, M5 and S3
Portege M300, M400, M500
Qosmio G30, F30
Only some of the battery packs used in these models are subject to Sony’s global battery pack replacement program.
