                     Due to Fire Hazard

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Com-
mission, in cooperation with the firms named below, today 
announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer 
product. Consumers should stop using recalled products 
immediately unless otherwise instructed. 

Name of Product: Rechargeable, lithium-ion batteries 
used in ThinkPad notebook computers

Units: About 168,500 battery packs (an additional 
357,500 battery packs were sold worldwide).

ing, posing a fire hazard to consumers.

Incidents/Injuries: Lenovo has received one confirmed 
report of a battery overheating and causing a fire 
that damaged the notebook computer. The incident, 
which occurred within an airport terminal as the user 
was boarding an airplane, caused enough smoking and 
sparking that a fire extinguisher was used to put it 
out. There was minor property damage and no injuries 
were reported.

Description: The recalled lithium-ion batteries were 
sold with or sold separately to be used with the 
following ThinkPad notebook computers: T Series (T43, 
T43p, T60); R Series (R51e, R52, R60, R60e); and X 
Series (X60, X60s). The recalled batteries have the 
following part or model numbers, which can be found

distributors between February 2005 and September 2006 
as an accessory for between $150 and $180 and as part 
of a ThinkPad notebook computer for between $750 and 
$3500.

Manufactured in: Japan and China

Remedy: Consumers should stop using the recalled 
batteries immediately and contact Lenovo to receive 
a replacement battery, free-of-charge. Until a 
replacement battery arrives, consumers can continue 
to use their computer by turning off the system, 
removing the battery, and plugging in the AC adapter 
and power cord. Consumers should use only genuine 
ThinkPad batteries obtained from either Lenovo or an 
authorized reseller.

Consumer Contact: Customers should contact Lenovo at 
(800) 426-7378 anytime or log on to
