For customers with further questions, HP has set up a detailed FAQ on the battery recall.
If you want to check whether your HP laptop battery is affected, you can find out by visiting HP's website. The website has instructions about what to do if the battery is included in the recall, including how to enable "battery safety mode".
If you do have an affected battery, don't remove it yourself, HP warned. "HP is providing battery replacement services by an authorised technician at no cost", it added.
Astros acquire pitcher Gerrit Cole from Pirates
The Yankees' rotation now includes Luis Severino, Masahiro Tanaka, Sonny Gray and CC Sabathia . ESPN Jerry Crasnick is saying that no deal is done for Cole and that a deal is "not imminent".
Late last week, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced that HP Development Company, a subsidiary of Hewlett Packard, would be recalling the lithium-ion batteries found in HP Notebook computers and mobile workstations. We are taking immediate action to address this issue including a voluntary recall and replacement of the batteries.
HP says, "Many of these batteries are internal to the system, which means they are not customer replaceable". The process involves downloading and installing the Battery Program Validation Utility provided by the company to quickly and easily determine whether or not the battery needs to be replaced, and the whole process only takes up 30 seconds of customers' time.
All in all, the company has been swift in responding-a total of $4,500 in property damage, as well as one instance of a customer experiencing first-degree burns to the hand, were reported among the first group complaints filed before HP took action-and it is clear that a proper support and information network has been set up to help the process go smoothly.
COOL VIDEO! Alligators poke their noses through ice to survive the cold
In extreme cases, they get frozen into the surface of the pond for several days and then swim free when the ice melts. The rescued alligators are fine - they're cold-blooded and can regulate their own body temperature.
Why this matters: Battery recalls happen every so often, often due to manufacturing issue.
The list of machines with the problematic lithium-ion batteries included Probook, Envy, Pavilion, Zbook, Studio G3, and HP 11 models. If the validation tool indicates your battery is affected, HP said you should "discontinue use of the battery immediately by placing it in Battery Safety Mode". We recently learned that batteries provided by one of our suppliers for certain notebook computers and mobile workstations present a potential safety concern.
