HP’s exploding batteries are back, new recall for notebooks

Just when you thought you were safe from exploding batteries, the fire-blasting wonders have risen back to the surface. Yup, the recalls are back and it’s starting with HP batteries catching on fire. Again. Not good.   The recalls didn’t exactly end, per se. HP has been pretty proactive with its recall process, calling in any batteries that it suspects might be dangerous. What makes today’s new a little more disconcerting, however, is that the list of recalled batteries continues to grow by the day.

The newest group to join the list come from the HP Pavilion line, as well as ones from the Compaq Presario and other lines. The manufacture dates are between August 2007 and May 2008. If you purchased an HP or Compaq laptop during that time, you’ll want to check the list.   Is your notebook affected by this recall? I think it’s time you call into the HP recall people or check the recall website to get yourself a free replacement. You’d hate to come home to a fiery blaze, I assume.

The battery packs in question were distributed worldwide in some of the following models:

HP Pavilion dv2000, dv2500, dv2700, dv6000, dv6500, dv6700, dx6000, dx6500, dx6700, dv9000, dv9500, dv9700. Compaq Presario, A900, C700, F500, F700, V3000, V3500, V3700, V6000, V6500, V6700, HP G6000, G7000, and the HP Compaq 6510b, 6515b, 6710b, 6710s, 6715b, 6715s and 6720s.
