HP Issues Another Round Of Notebook Battery Recalls

Remember back last year when HP recalled overheating and exploding batteries? No? Here’s our coverage. Apparently a series somehow escaped the net and now HP is recalling another 162,000 notebook batteries. These batteries were included on laptops sold between July 2007 and May 2008, which according to the CPSC, “can overheat and rupture, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers.” Yeah, it’s best to protect your baby making region and ensure your notebook isn’t packing a time bomb.
