    Nokia warns over battery overheating risk

    Battery Industrial Co Ltd of Japan between December 2005 and November


    2006, saying that the batteries may overheat while charging.





    This product advisory does not apply to any other Nokia-branded battery.





    Nokia has identified that in very rare cases the Nokia-branded BL-5C


    batteries subject to the product advisory could potentially experience


    overheating initiated by a short circuit while charging, causing the


    battery to dislodge.





    Nokia is working closely with Matsushita and will be cooperating with


    relevant authorities to investigate this situation.





    Nokia has several suppliers for BL-5C batteries who 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, from which there have been


    approximately 100 incidents of overheating reported globally. No serious


    injuries or property damage have been reported, the advisory note from


    Nokia said.


     






    Consumers with a BL-5C battery subject to this advisory should note that


    all of the approximately 100 incidents have occurred while charging the


    battery.





    While the occurrences in the BL-5C batteries produced by Matsushita in


    the time-period specified are rare, concerned consumers can request a


    replacement for any BL-5C battery subject to this product advisory.





    It is important to note that the BL-5C battery is not used in all Nokia


    products and that only a portion of the Nokia BL-5C batteries in use are


    subject to this advisory.





    How to identify a BL-5C battery manufactured by Matsushita during the


    relevant period





    In order to determine if a battery is subject to this advisory, it is


    necessary to remove the battery from the device. A Nokia battery will


    have 'Nokia' and 'BL-5C' printed on the front of the battery.





    On the reverse, the Nokia mark appears at the top and the battery


    identification number (consisting of 26 characters) is found at the


    bottom. Consumers should refer to this identification number to


    determine if their battery is among the batteries manufactured by


    Matsushita between December 2005 and November 2006.





    A comparison of that number with those subject to this advisory will


    determine a consumer's ability to obtain a replacement free of charge.





    Consumers should visit the website www.nokia.com/batteryreplacement or


    contact their local Nokia call centre.









    Product Advisory: Nokia BL-5C battery





    Please select the language: English











    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.





    Consumers with a BL-5C battery subject to this advisory should note that


    all of the approximately 100 incidents have occurred while charging the


    battery. According to Nokia's knowledge this issue does not affect any


    other use of the mobile device. Concerned consumers may want to monitor


    a mobile device while charging that contains a BL-5C battery subject to


    this product advisory.





    While the occurrence in the BL-5C batteries produced by Matsushita in


    the time-period specified is very rare, for consumers wishing to do so,


    Nokia and Matsushita offer to replace any BL-5C battery subject to this


    product advisory.





    The BL-5C batteries which are subject to the product advisory were used


    with the following Nokia models or separately as accessories:

    N71, Nokia N72, Nokia N91, Nokia E50, Nokia E60









    "Nokia" and "BL-5C" are printed on the front of the battery. On the back


    of the battery, the Nokia mark appears at the top, and the battery


    identification number (consisting of 26 characters) is found at the


    bottom.





    If you are interested to know if your battery is part of this product


    advisory, please follow the two steps below:





    1) Switch off your mobile device and check the battery model. If


    your battery is not a BL-5C model, you are not included in this product


    advisory and your product will not be replaced.







    2) If your battery is a BL-5C model, remove the battery and check the


    26-character identification number from the back of the battery. Enter


    the identification number in the field below and you will be advised if


    your battery may be replaced.
