Another laptop battery problem has hit Apple. This time the problem, in MacBook and MacBook Pro lines, is not said to pose a fire hazard. Apple recalled 1.8m laptop batteries manufactured by Sony last year because they posed a fire hazard, an exercise that also had to be followed by other major laptop manufacturers.
The latest problem involves laptop batteries not charging properly from a power outlet, and other symptoms. Apple said it "has recently discovered that some batteries used in its MacBook and MacBook Pro notebooks may have battery performance issues. Apple is offering a software update that is designed to improve battery performance". Apple added, "The factors causing the performance issues do not present a safety risk. You may continue to use your current battery."
