Fujitsu details Sony battery exchange plans

Fujitsu will offer owners of some of its laptop computers replacement batteries as part of Sony's global battery exchange program, it said Saturday.

Sony announced the program Friday in response to growing consumer concerns about its laptop PC batteries, which are used by many companies. Since mid-August, about 6.6 million laptop batteries containing Sony-made cells have been recalled by computer makers because of a potential fire hazard.

Fujitsu said it believes there is no danger in using Sony-made batteries in their machines, but following recalls from other PC vendors the companies are offering replacements to ease customers' concerns.

The Fujitsu Japanese-market models are: FMV Biblo Loox P-series P70R and P70S and the Biblo Loox T-series T50M, T50R, T50RN, T50S, T50SN, T70M, T70M/T, T70MN, T70R, T70R/T, T70RN, T70S, T70S/V, T70SN and the FMV-P8210.

Those sold outside Japan covered by the exchange are: Lifebook P1510, P1510D, P7120, P7120D, S7020, S7020D, S7025, S7025D, C1320 and C1320D.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
