HP Battery Recall Expanded: How to Find Out if Your Battery is Bad

HP Battery RecallHP launched a battery recall back in 2009, which covered a broad range of notebooks with the HP and Compaq labels, and now thanks to additional investigations HP is expanding the battery recall to a larger number of notebooks and batteries. Because of the increased recall, HP is asking customers to re-verify that they are using a safe battery by checking their battery on the HP Notebook PC Battery Pack Replacement website, even if they have already checked.

The Battery recall is due to a safety hazard affecting a small number of batteries shipped in HP and Compaq notebooks. The issue with this recall is that the batteries could overheat and cause a fire or burn users. If you have an HP notebook, you should spend a few minutes to make sure your battery is not part of the recall. Continuing to use a recalled battery is a safety hazard. The Battery Recall website provides easy to follow instructions for identifying any affected batteries.
