The way the story on the news spoke, this problem goes beyond Dell laptops and could potentially affect any devices that contain Lithium batteries.

Kind of scary.

More research went into this.  Lithium Ion technology is safe.  It was the way Sony manufactured these batteries on the recall that made them unsafe.  There was loose metal inside the batteries that could cause a short and possibly a fire.
