Default Battery Recall for Nokia mobile/cell phones with BL-5c battery

If your one of the millions of users who have a Nokia phone then use the below to check your battery for being one of the recalled ( Mine is on my N70 )

Dear Nokia Customer,

This is a product advisory for the Nokia-branded BL-5C battery manufactured by Matsushita Battery Industrial Co. Ltd. of Japan between December 2005 and November 2006. This product advisory does not apply to any other Nokia battery.

Nokia has identified that in very rare cases the affected batteries could potentially experience over heating initiated by a short circuit while charging, causing the battery to dislodge. Nokia is working closely with relevant local authorities to investigate this situation.

Nokia has several suppliers for BL-5C batteries that have collectively produced more than 300 million BL-5C batteries. This advisory applies only to the 46 million batteries manufactured by Matsushita between December 2005 and November 2006. There have been approximately 100 incidents of over heating reported globally. No serious injuries or property damage have been reported.

Wow, my battery is in the description, but fortunately my "battery identification number" isn't one of the ones being advised about. For those who have one of the recalled batteries, there's an area in which you can key in the "battery identification number" to submit to see if includes yours or not.

Thank you for posting this!

Thank you for posting this. I had heard about it at work, but looked on Nokia's website and couldn't find where to see which battery it is.
I do not have this battery, but was nice to be able to check
