HP has reported that some of its batteries in laptops are subject to a safety recall. These are all models with integrated batteries that users cannot change. HP will pay for replacement batteries at authorised service centers.

Check if yours is on the list.

HP ProBook 640 G3
HP ProBook 645 G2
HP ProBook 645 G3
HP ProBook 650 G2

HP ProBook 655 G2
HP ProBook 655 G3

ZBook:

There's a handy utillity on the recall page which tests your battery to see if it's one of the affected models, and then, if it is one of the models, gives you the option of turning the battery off, making the product usable only with power connected.

So make an appointment with your Galaxy Note 8, jump on your iLive hoverboard and take your HP laptop down to repair.
