This from CNN.

Sony lithium-ion batteries

PC makers have recalled 9.6 million Sony-made notebook and laptop batteries so far this year for a rare but spectacular tendency to overheat and burst into flames. In money terms, the recalls cost Sony 51 billion yen (about $433 million). In reputation, though, the cost was higher: Sony's reputation for quality went up in flames.

They should correct that.

Technically speaking, they don't go up in flames. They vent with flames. I love that distinction!!!

Makes the RC ones seem tame in comparison.

Sony is a product that has always been priced higher than competitors. Sony products have been of average quality.
