Panasonic has expanded its H2 Toughbook battery recall for Nov. 2015 by another 98,520 bringing the total number up to 314,926 batteries following all of the other recalls. This new one includes batteries manufactured between June 2011 and September 2012, this is on top of the other ones that were produced between June 2011 and May 2012.

You have to admire Panasonic for getting on top of this issue the moment they learned of them, although we have to wonder why there would be such an issue in the first place?
