I don't know where "Regent Street" is, but anyone that will give you a $129 battery for free has got to become your best friend.

There isn't anything wrong with the design of the batteries - the recall was for the Sanyo LiPo cells that were being used by every laptop manufacturer (Lenovo, Dell, HP) at the time.

Maybe yours fell under the recall umbrella. Very nice of them.
