HP has issued a battery recall notice for a number of its laptops and mobile workstations sold over the last two years due to concerns that the battery inside these machines could be risky and a fire hazard. Canada is announcing the recall of lithium-ion batteries available with HP laptops and portable workstations as they may overheat, posing a risk of burns and fire. The batteries were shipped in the computers and workstations sold from December 2015 through December 2017 for approximately $300-$400. According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, affected models include HP "ProBooks" (64x G2 and G3 series, 65x G2 and G3 series), HPx360 310 G2, HP "Envy" m6, HP "Pavilion" x360, HP 11, HP "ZBook" (17 G3, 17 G4, and "Studio" G3) mobile workstations.
Naturally, none of this will come at any cost to the customer, except for the inconvenience of temporarily having your battery disabled.
