HP Canada recalling certain lithium-ion batteries

HP's Envy 13

The recall is in response to eight reports of batteries "overheating, melting, or charring", HP says. "For this reason, it is extremely important to check whether your battery is affected".

According to the recall notice, around 50,000 units are affected, representing batteries shipped with notebooks and mobile workstations sold from December 2015 through December 2017. As these batteries are sealed inside the laptop, a qualified technician will be called upon to carry out the replacement. HP strongly recommends accepting Battery Safety Mode so that the notebook or mobile workstation can be safely used by connecting to an HP power adaptor.

HP is recalling lithium-ion batteries for its notebook computers and mobile workstations after learning they may pose burn and fire hazards.
