Fire Risk: Some HP Laptops Need Battery Replacements

HP recalls computer batteries over fire risk

HP recalls many laptops due to fire hazard batteries

HP is recalling 50,000 computer batteries because of reports of overheating. Affected batteries pose a fire threat and could burn users, so if you've bought such an HP device since late 2015, you should check to find out if you're impacted.

HP has announced a recall on batteries in select notebook and mobile workstations sold in recent years.

If so, there are also instructions on how to put your notebook into "battery safety mode" for the time being - effectively discharging and disabling the battery, meaning you'll have to use the portable plugged into a power socket - while a replacement battery is arranged.
