Finally in what in a nation where saving face is of primary importance, and public embarassment is a disaster, Sony is about to announce its own LI ION battery recall.

Having moved from claiming it was a Dell charger design problem to an industry widespread recall, based on insiders claims of poor quality control and design defects, Sony finally seems to be willing to publicly face the obvious,1895,2022275,00.asp

The question still remains, is this a problem that is also found in camcorder batteries?

While people may find fault with the excessive lawyer activity in the US and the massive damage awards, it is interesting to see that it is the US consumer protection agency that has taken this initiative. As Bob C says, the UK and the rest of the world seems unwillling and unable to take any sort of action.
