Nokia Battery Issue

Nokia, the worlds number one cellphone maker has issued a notice regarding 46 million batteries that could overheat. The company is offering to replace the "BL-5C" batteries made by Matsushita Electric Industrial Co. Ltd. (manufacturer of such brands as Panasonic, National, and Technics) between December 2005 and November 2006. Nokia said in a statement "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."
