ThinkPad X1 Carbon Recalled Over Fire Hazard

Lenovo X1 Carbon 5th-gen recalled over fire risk a screw is to blame

Lenovo has announced a voluntary recall of four models of its ThinkPad X1 Carbon 5th Generation notebooks. If affected, people are asked to immediately stop using the laptop and to then locate a repair center for inspection and fixes. Users can visit Lenovo's to check if their laptop is included in the recall.

So far, there haven't been any reports of fires caused by this defect, but three device failures have caused Lenovo to investigate and issue a recall.

Said loose screw could potentially damage the battery pack's lithium-ion polymer layer and cause a short. The Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon received similarly positive receptions, but it turned out to be a fire hazard too. The recall could affect as much as 83,500 devices. And they will also do repairing if necessary free-of-charge.

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon is one of our favorite laptops, and we praised it for long battery life, a attractive display and unbelievable design. Having taken the time to fully understand and correct this manufacturing issue, Lenovo is fully confident that its current ThinkPad X1 Carbon laptops meet Lenovo's high quality and safety standards.

To note, only the fifth-generation model of the said laptop is affected by the recall, not any previous ones.

Lenovo added that they regret any inconvenience caused. USA and Canada residents can also contact Lenovo Services at 1 800-426-7378 for help.
