Here at HP, we take our customers – and your safety – seriously. A couple years ago, we issued a voluntary recall on a select number of notebook batteries. That’s why I wanted to share that today, we’re expanding a voluntary battery recall and replacement program. It includes certain model series manufactured from July 2007 through May 2008 – and we want to make sure that your batteries aren’t affected.
If you haven’t already checked to see if your laptop’s battery pack could be listed, please do so. And even if you’ve checked your battery during our previous recall announcements, it’s important to double check since this expansion includes additional battery packs and one additional notebook model series. Just go to the program Web site – in this case, the May 26th update – and click the “Validate Your Battery” button.
To be extra clear: This isn’t a recall of notebook PCs, just the affected batteries. Even if your notebook is listed as part of the recall, it does not guarantee that your serial number is impacted. Those eligible will receive a replacement pack for each verified, recalled pack at no cost.
Here’s a quick list of the affected laptops
Again, this is a voluntary effort. HP fully stands behind its products and we want to ensure your safety – so please check today.
