Nvidia issued a recall on its Shield gaming tablet, citing a potential fire hazard caused by faulty batteries.

Not all batteries are affected by overheating, but users are asked to check their device to see if it falls under the recall. The recall allows customers to submit a claim and receive a replacement unit through Nvidia?s website.

If your battery is categorized as ?B01,? you?re in the clear. ?Y01? means you qualify and you sort of win a new tablet, but should probably turn off the Shield device and send it to Nvidia first.
