HP announces huge battery recall

We keep on presenting bad news today (unfortunately) and this time it is the turn of HP notebook owners to feel some pain. It turns out that this US computer maker has issued a major battery recall that affects a number of HP notebooks. These notebooks use Panasonic batteries that may overheat and cause a fire, destroying the notebook and possibly hurting you in the process.

Here’s a list of the affected models – people who have purchased an HP Envy, ProBook, Presario or Pavilion notebook within the past three years may be affected. There’s a free utility that checks for this problem too but if you own one of the aforementioned notebooks and your battery starts with 6BZLU, 6EBVA, 6CGFK, 6CGFQ, 6CZMB, 6DEMA, 6DEMH and 6DGAL there’s a serious chance you may be a “lucky” winner.

If this is the case, get in touch with your local HP representative and request a new battery before it is too late.

Good luck!
