HP Battery Pack Recall

by | Jul 27, 2011 | News | 2 comments

HP has issued a recall on a series of battery parks, adding to the recalled products previously expanded on May 19, 2010. These battery parks are now said to have the potential to overheat, posing a fire and burn hazard to customers.

HP says that if you have not replaced your original battery, you must validate your battery, even if previously validated. Validating your battery will determine whether your battery pack is affected.

Please follow this link to validate your battery:

HP will provide a free replacement battery park if validation indicates that your battery is affected.

Please be aware that the validation process may indicate that your battery pack is not affected, as approximately 5% of PC products sold between July 2007 and July 2008 were not affected.

First identify your notebook’s product number and serial number, located on the service tag at the bottom of your notebook.
