HP Recalls Another 162,000 Laptop Batteries

HP has just recalled 162,000 lithium-ion batteries after discovering a product model series that was missing in last year’s worldwide recall, ITNews Australia reports. The laptop batteries were shipped between July 2007 and May 2008 and are prone to overheat and rupture, which may result in fires or burns, according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The new model series was discovered on the HP Compaq 6520 and one of the HP Pavilion models. The recent recall of 162K batteries adds to the already 124K previously recalled within the past two years, bringing the total up to nearly 300,000 recalled batteries, ouch!
