HP has announced that a new laptop battery recall is now underway owing to the notebooks being at the risk of overheating. The latest recall covers the HP Compaq, HP ProBook, HP ENVY, Compaq Presario, and HP Pavilion notebooks that were sold across the globe from March 2013 to August 2015. Those who purchase any of these notebooks during the time period defined should reach out to HP to get information on how to get a replacement battery.

Not all of HP’s product lines were affected so even if you purchased one of the company’s notebooks over the last couple of years, you should really check the list and confirm whether or not your laptop is among those that have been recalled due to the battery being at the risk of overheating.

There is a very simple way to check that. Just download a utility that HP has created which will automatically tell you whether or not your laptop has been recalled. If it has been recalled then you will be told to stop using the battery inside your laptop immediately.

Get in touch with HP if you find that your notebook has been recalled for this issue. The company promises to provide customers with a replacement battery at no cost to them.
