HP recalls another 15,000 laptop batteries

HP IS ONCE AGAIN blazing into the headlines with the firm embarrassingly having to recall thousands more laptop batteries which could spontaneously combust at any given moment.

A Chinese government website said the world’s biggest computer maker would have to recall 15,000 laptop batteries distributed throughout China, owing to dangers they might overheat and explode into flames. HP Pavilion, Compaq Presario and HP Compaq laptop users are advised to check the website if they bought their machines in China between late 2007 and early 2008.

The announcement comes just a short while after the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) made HP recall about 70,000 laptop batteries, also for fear of them dying a fiery death.
