Fujitsu LifeBook Overheating Batteries

Okay, you guys are fantastic. Thanks for all the quick responses. At this rate, no batteries should ever explode again! IBM-LENOVO code is now in hal-info.

Can anybody with a Fujitsu LifeBook  C1320D, P1510 / P1510D, P7120 / P7120D, Q2010 or S7020 / S7020D please email me the lshal output. (richard_at_hughsie_dot_com)… yet more overheating batteries to find.

Thanks. I'm sure someone will complain on p.g.o but this is really a public service announcement with intent to commit code.

EDIT: Please stop the Fujutsu emails, I have enough data now. Many thanks to all that sent emails. Fujitsu is now listed in hal-info.
