HP Issues Recall of 50000 Laptop Batteries Due to Fire Risk


The battery packs were sold at Best Buy and other stores and authorized dealers nationwide and on Amazon.com, HP.com and other websites.

Earlier today, the company announced that it is commencing a worldwide recall of lithium ion batteries for its notebooks and mobile workstations due to flaws that could cause them to overheat and catch fire.

These batteries have the potential to overheat, posing a fire and burn hazard to customers.

Affected laptops include the HP Probook 65x, HP x360 310 G2, HP ENVY m6, HP Pavilion x360, HP 11 notebook computers, and HP ZBook mobile workstations. The batteries were shipped in notebook computers and mobile workstations sold from December 2015 through December 2017 for between $300 and $4,000.

Naturally, none of this will come at any cost to the customer, except for the inconvenience of temporarily having your battery disabled.

In September, the Security Council put a cap of 2 million barrels a year on refined petroleum products exports to North Korea. According to the report , Russian ships conducted ship-to-ship transfers at least three times during October and November.

Consumers are encouraged to immediately stop using these batteries and to visit the Health Canada website to recall the HP batteries to determine if their product is covered and to order another free battery, if applicable.

HP issued a statement to stay: "The quality and safety of all HP products is our top priority". The most important thing users can do is check to see if their notebook battery is affected.

The voluntary safety recall was initiated this month, with HP offering replacements for affected units.

This mode will discharge the battery and prevent it from being recharged until the battery is replaced.
