HP withdraws notebook-computer batteries

HP recalled lithium-ion batteries because of fire hazard

By CBR Staff Writer

Hewlett-Packard has recalled lithium-ion batteries used in about 70,000 HP Pavilion, Compaq Presario and HP Compaq notebook computers because of fire hazard, according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. “The recalled lithium-ion batteries can overheat, posing a fire and burn hazard to consumers,” quoted in Denver Business Journal.

The company said it was aware of two separate reports of batteries which got overheated and ruptured leading to flames which resulted in minor property damage.

Users were asked to remove the batteries straight away and contact the company to determine whether their battery is included in the recall and to order a free replacement.

The models, sold between August 2007 and March 2008, which could contain a recalled battery are HP Pavilion (models dv2000, dv2500, dv2700, dv6000, dv6500, dv6700, dv9000, dv9500 and dv9700); Compaq Presario (models A900, C700, F700, V3000, V3500, V3700, V6000, V6500 and V6700); HP (models G6000 and G7000); and HP Compaq (model 6720s).
