[UPDATE: Other people having the same issue. do maybe it is a defect inherent to this capacitor]
Using my laptop to post this.
Best Buy was closed; I think because of the snow.
Found my newer camera to take this shot in my laptop bag. Still need to find the battery charger for it.

At a June 2006 conference in Japan, a Dell laptop suddenly exploded into flames. Luckily for its owner, the explosion occurred while the PC was sitting on a table and not in his lap. Gaston, a reader of the Inquirer, witnessed the malfunction and reported that the notebook continued to burn, producing several more explosions over the course of about five minutes.

Japan and South Korea occupy the top three laptop battery
Due to quality issues , but also greatly affected Sony battery industry ‘s development , because apart from compensation, Sony manufactured batteries battery be his core Xianzai also refused to have contact module manufacturer ‘s . Song Fuxiang said in the past almost every battery module factories and Sony have procurement relationships , but Sony’s problems , it is now almost all manufacturers are no longer on the Sony purchase, Sony batteries so large shipments of core contraction , leaving only Shipments are mainly used to meet the required recall .
Japan and South Korea occupy the top three laptop battery
From a cost point of view, the cost of laptop battery is about 30-40 U.S. dollars , second only to processor (CPU), hard drives, so the laptop works , Dell 312-0306 Battery such as Dell , Hewlett-Packard (HP), Apple , etc. regarded as a direct battery Procurement of parts and components . Which accounted for the highest proportion of lithium is barrel core , in general the most common six -cell battery of view , accounting for more than the overall cost of Qi Cheng , and the battery core owing to the heavy chemical industry , have very high technical threshold , and Require high-cost investment, mainly to South Korea, Japan -based manufacturers . The past is also important to Motorola, an American manufacturer lithium core , however , to compete against Japanese, Korean manufacturers, with industry risks are too high , it will also sell the battery core sector , and now Japan’s Sanyo , Sony and Samsung in Korea Lithium is currently the world’s top three core companies .
Downstream of the battery core is a home battery module plant , the plant has its own battery core module plant , however , Taiwan’s notebook PC as a complete upper and lower village , so although there is no battery core plant , it still developed a battery module industry . Taiwan notebook battery module two major new plant P , Shunda that with a laptop on behalf of the factory and close relationship with the mainland at low wages ,Dell Inspiron 710m Battery, Dell F5136 Battery, Dell 312-0306 Battery, Dell 312-0305 Battery Dell Inspiron 500m Battery, scored the industry.
Although manufacturers will purchase the right to revert to NB grasp, but , for the attitude module plant is still quite a space, the notebook computer makers will do to the battery core factory certification , each with several core works with the battery . In addition, the requirements for the battery module factory design a series of standards is not mandatory for each model with a solution, the module works as long as the proposed safety standards in line with manufacturers specifications , then the battery to the core by certified battery plant procurement Core can be assembled into modules .
Dell and Apple are the victims
The large-scale recovery, just in Dell announced second quarter earnings expectations may not be as time , Dell’s growth rate over the past year has slowed down, so many people to the recovery movement and Dell recently the plight of more than a year associate , question whether a series of Dell adjustment, in the past for the quality control has been relaxed.
The large-scale recovery, just in Dell announced second quarter earnings expectations may not be as time ,Dell F5136 Battery, Dell’s growth rate over the past year has slowed down, so many people to the recovery movement and Dell recently the plight of more than a year associate , question whether a series of Dell adjustment, in the past for the quality control has been relaxed.
However, with the Song Fuxiang has been working with Dell , said Dell’s standard is almost the most demanding , the new general became the first scored the supply chain, Taiwan Dell battery module plant , through Dell ‘s certification is representative of the new common technology Recognition , this time in the past , Dell’s security requirements and not reduced .
Later, when Apple Computer announced that follow-up recall , Dell’s market concerns ease only slightly . But the trade, these defective cells from the second year of the new production ? ? these four years during the first half of this year , for up to two years, during which various laptop brands that use Sony’s battery cell battery case overheating occurs frequently , I believe Sony over the quality of these manufacturers are still to blame .
In fact, in a few months ago , the battery module factory on receipt of Dell, Apple batteries in response to recall the necessary orders , and when one after another ship in August . But manufacturers say , Dell, Apple , the other is also produced by Sony ‘s laptop battery manufacturers are still waiting to see , and no further action . The number of foreign news coming one after another , such as Sony ,Dell Inspiron 710m Battery, Dell F5136 Battery, Dell 312-0306 Battery, Dell 312-0305 Battery Dell Inspiron 500m Battery, announced that only Dell and Apple have such a large-scale recall of action . Some also use Sony batteries core brands such as Lenovo , Fujitsu and so on , announced that the products are heat-resistant design , it will not have overheating problems .
But things really as bad as manufacturers said, Dell, Apple , after all it will survive without you? The company strongly disinfection , the battery R & D staff is very concerned to express , including Dell , Apple included, all laptop brands have heat or overheating shutdown of the design , but still there was overheating .
In fact , these security problems will not only in these two companies , Dell Inspiron 710m Battery, only because Dell is the sales of Sony’s purchase of the largest notebook vendor, so it might give the impression Dell’s poor design . In fact, any use of Sony laptop batteries , such problems are likely to occur .
However, for consumers, because the battery does not indicate a general supplier of the battery core , you want to identify the battery manufacturer, is actually unlikely . Battery R & D personnel on condition of anonymity suggested that not address the safety concerns , several major brand notebook computers , in addition to already announced the recall of Dell, Apple and Sony ‘s own VAIO, Lenovo ‘s ThinkPad are also used in all current virtually Sony notebook computer batteries , consumer use, the best time of purchase must also pay attention . As for another fight with the Dell PC maker Hewlett-Packard led , not because of Sony’s purchases , but unexpectedly become a relatively safe choice .
