HP Battery Pack Recall

For those of you who are using HP notebooks check whether you are eligible for a battery pack replacement. HP is recalling battery packs that came with their notebooks.

In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, on October 14, 2005, HP announced a worldwide voluntary recall and replacement program for battery packs used in certain HP notebooks.HP customers affected by this program will be eligible to receive a replacement battery pack for each verified, affected, recalled battery pack at no cost.

HP and the battery pack cell manufacturer have identified a defect in assembled battery packs manufactured between March 2004 and September 2004. HP considers the defect to pose a potential safety hazard to end users.

Notebook models that were affected can be found at HP Mobile Battery Pack Replacement Program site.

Unfortunately the site’s validator is not working. I was going to have my battery pack validated but I keep on getting runtime errors. I hope they fix it as soon as possible.
