HP extends massive battery recall for overheating notebooks

HP logoThe U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission put out a bulletin this afternoon extending last year's recall of HP and Compaq Li-Ion notebook batteries that were prone to overheating.

The recall in May of last year included 70,000 potentially defective batteries, and today that has been extended to approximately 54,000 more.

The extension of the recall is due in large part to consumer complaints of overheated and rupturing batteries. The commission said that HP has received 38 more reports of overheated batteries; with 31 resulting in minor property damage, and 11 resulting in minor human injury.

The following notebooks are affected in this battery recall:

HP Pavilion: dv2000, dv2500, dv2700 (body style pictured below), dv6000, dv6500, dv6700, dx6000, dx6500, dx6700, dv9000, dv9500, dv9700.

Compaq Presario: A900, C700, F500, F700, V3000, V3500, V3700, V6000, V6500, V6700 HP: G6000, G7000 HP Compaq: 6510b, 6515b, 6710b, 6710s, 6715b, 6715s, 6270s.
