Nokia warned consumers that 46 million batteries used in its mobile phones could overheat and offered to replace them for free while it negotiates with battery maker Matsu#*$!a over who would bear the costs.

"Nokia has identified that in very rare cases the Nokia-branded BL-5C batteries ... could potentially experience overheating initiated by a short circuit while charging, causing the battery to dislodge," it said on Tuesday.

Nokia said it was working closely with Matsu#*$!a Electric Industrial Co. Ltd., which made the batteries in question between December 2005 and November 2006, to investigate the problem.
