Check your HP battery!
Following “hot on the heels” (pun intended) of the previous Toshiba battery recall, we have Hewlett Packard’s “Hot Potato” over-heating batteries….
The affected laptops run the full HP gamut, including their popular Compaq branded units. Over-heating can not only damage the battery, but the computer as well.
The link above allows you to download & run a file to check if your battery is affected. Personally, I prefer to do the manual check, as it’s only a matter of reading the details on the battery/battery compartment & typing it in.
To be on the safe-side, check your HP battery, today!
