Nokia users heed this call

PETALING JAYA: If you are using a Nokia cellphone, check its battery to see 
if it is the BL-5C type.

Nokia said a batch of BL-5C batteries was prone to overheating when the 
phone was being recharged.

Those affected should go to the webpage
www.nokia.com/batteryreplacement
for instructions on how to check if their battery is from the troublesome 
batch.

The webpage provides pointers on how to get a replacement battery. Nokia 
said the replacements would be free of charge and that the new battery would 
be
couriered to affected users.

According to Nokia, there has been about 100 reported incidents worldwide of 
the battery overheating, with no instances of serious injury or property 
damage.


Nokia has several suppliers for BL-5C batteries who have collectively 
produced more than 300 million units.

However, the company said the advisory only applied to 46 million batteries 
manufactured by Matsushita between December 2005 and November 2006.
