HP is now taking steps to recall its laptops, therefore asking laptop owners to send their batteries and replace them to ensure that their devices don’t catch fires.  The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a notice about the recall of 101,000 computers.

The customers who purchased  HP, Compaq, HP ProBook, HP ENVY, Compaq Presario and HP Pavilion laptops between March 2013 and October 2016 should return their batteries so that the company will be able to check lithium-ion battery.

If the batteries bar code starts with  6BZLU, 6CGFK, 6CGFQ, 6CZMB, 6DEMA, 6DEMH, 6DGAL or 6EBVA, the company states you can replace it with the new one.

According to the CPSC notice, the company has received “an additional report of the battery overheating, melting and charring and causing about $1,000 in property damage.”

Back in June 2016, the electronic maker announced a recall for 41,000 batteries, but this new report force it to recall more batteries. Lithium-ion batteries are likely to overheat and catch fire and Samsung Note 7 is a good example.
