Months after joining other PC vendors in a massive recall of faulty notebook batteries, Lenovo Group Ltd. said today it has found a different problem with some models, and will recall 208,000 notebook batteries worldwide. Lenovo made the move after five customers complained their batteries overheated after they had dropped or hit the notebooks. The defect caused minor eye irritation for one user, and damaged the property and computers of the others, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
