Ignoring battery recalls? Think again.

As you are probably (or should be) aware, both Apple and Dell have issued recalls on millions of laptop battery packs, due to risk of fire.

I know of some people who are choosing to ignore the recall. This is incredibly stupid. Gizmodo ran an article from someone whose laptop caught fire. Another person posted some photos showing the aftermath of a laptop battery-fire.

(Note: This applies equally to Dells. My links show Apple laptops only because I've been getting my information from Mac user groups.)
