Default HP Recalls Notebook Computer Batteries

HP Recalls Notebook Computer Batteries

If you own a HP / Compaq laptop, you should know that there has been a voluntary recall of more than 70,000 batteries. U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission warns that the batteries in question can overheat and cause a fire.

The firm and CPSC are aware of two reports of batteries that overheated and ruptured, resulting in flames/fire that caused minor property damage. No injuries have been reported.
