Charring, melting laptop batteries cause HP to issue voluntary recall


The company will replace the battery for free and send a technician to do so.

Those who have purchased a new HP laptop in the past two years should take note of the company's latest voluntary recall. HP announced that it's recalling batteries for select laptop models, including some in the ProBook, Envy, and ZBook families. The company received eight reports of these lithium-ion batteries overheating, melting, or charring, as well as one report of a minor injury caused by the malfunctioning batteries.

"We are taking immediate action to address this issue including a voluntary recall and replacement of the batteries," HP's statement says. "This action pertains to 0.1 percent of the HP systems sold globally over the past two years."

Just keep checking this recall. As it sometimes happens recall may be expanded and at this time your computer will qualify. If this happen just say "Yes" to new battery smile
