HELSINKI (Reuters) – The world’s top cellphone maker Nokia (NOK1V.HE) said on Tuesday 46 million batteries used in its phones could overheat and the company would replace them for no cost to consumers. For details, please go to http://www.nokia.com/batteryreplacement/en/.

Nokia said the Nokia-branded “BL-5C” batteries were made by Matsushita Electric Industrial Co. Ltd. (6752.T) between December 2005 and November 2006.

“(The batteries) could potentially experience overheating initiated by a short circuit while charging, causing the battery to dislodge,” Nokia said in a statement.

Nokia said 100 overheating cases of batteries in question have been reported globally, but no serious injuries were reported.

The “BL-5C” is Nokia’s most widely used battery and several suppliers have made more than 300 million of them for Nokia.
