HP Expands Laptop Battery Recall Amidst Injury Reports

first_img As soon as Rami Tabari sprung out of the College of Staten Island, he hit the ground running as a Staff Writer for Laptop Mag. He reviews every shape and form of a laptop as well as all sorts of cool tech. You can find him sitting at his desk surrounded by a hoarder’s dream of laptops, and when he navigates his way out to civilization, you can catch him watching really bad anime or playing some kind of painfully difficult game. He’s the best at every game and he just doesn’t lose. That’s why you’ll occasionally catch his byline in Tom’s Guide, taking on the latest Souls-like challenge.

The original recall was actually announced January 2018 by the CPSC due to “eight reports of battery packs overheating, melting, or charring, including three reports of property damage totaling $4,500 with one report of a minor injury involving a first degree burn to the hand.” Therefore, 50,000 battery units were recalled.Despite that, the CPSC has recently stated that HP received “eight new reports of battery packs in the U.S. overheating, melting, or charring, including one report of minor injury and two reports of property damage totaling $1,100.” As a result, the recall now brings us to “about 78,500” units.According to the CPSC, the batteries were “shipped in notebook computers and mobile workstations sold from December 2015 through April 2018 for between $300 and $4,000 and were also sold separately between December 2015 and December 2018 for between $50 and $90.” If you have one of the products listed in HP’s recall, you can go to this site which will guide you on how to validate your battery and provide you with the next steps to return it.The Best Laptops for Every NeedCredit: Shutterstocklast_img
