What will happen to the recalled batteries? suggests that all those Sony/Apple/Dell batteries that are being recalled are really rather hazardous and will end up in some 3rd world landfill.

Well how about they give me a few thousand to use in my home brew electric vehicle? Mmm, cheap as chips high density LiOn batteries that probably won't explode. Lovely.

In fact why don't they just sell them on eBay with no warranty?

Thinking more about this, I bet a significant number end up in those slightly dodgy Tottenham Court road electrical shops that sell second hand computer bits.
