    I was wondering where I could look up the latest recalls concerning ASUS ensemble and built-on notebooks? Which page in the ASUS website specifically?

    Thanks.

    There are none, so there isn't a page. The only recall Asus had in the past in terms of their notebook line at least was a voluntary recall on Z71 main batteries made between March of 2005 until November of 2005 and ONLY if they won't hold 90% of their charge...... most people who had a problem saw their battery drop to a max of only 60% over a matter of a couple months. I know we saw 2-3 dozen batteries get replaced by Asus, with the entire replacement paid for by Sony, but it was only for those with the problem.

    The Dell and Apple battery problems all stemmed from Sony batteries. I was wondering the same thing - My Z63A has a Sony battery - has anybody had any problems?

    I realize that..... it doesn't make it funny. I answered that question in another post.

    Although I'm going to mention this to you over im in a second...... the Z71 batteries that had problems used cells from Sony... I ripped apart one of the batteries this evening with a 56xxxxxx serial number that was outside of the warranty period and had this problem and it had Sony's model numbers on it.

    Do any of you guys know how many RMA's are on V6(V) batteries relative to other model's batteries?

    I am asking this because my battery is acting funny again... 4% wear level but the battery never charge beyond 86%, and I already quit calibrating it because the process never ended after 10 hours. I'm waiting for a prepaid shipping package from ASUS.

    The V6J batteries are showing the same symptoms as the Z71. ASUS has exchanged my batteries twice already but the fault still exists. In less than a month, battery wear has jumped to 30% :eek: I'm not the only one who has issues with the V6J batteries; there are so many V6J owners complaining about their batteries. I love my V6J, but this battery glitch just drives me insane. I used to squeeze 4hrs out of it, but now it can barely manage 1.5hrs :( I'll have my batteries replaced a third time, but i guess with my luck that'll be a temporary relief before they start crapping on me again!!! x_x

    Justin? Eddie? Anyone?
