- HP will provided affected customers with a replacement battery at no charge. HP will also provide onsite battery replacement service.

- If the validation process indicates that a battery is affected, customers should cease use of the affected battery immediately by enabling Battery Safety Mode and connecting to external power with an HP power adaptor.
- Battery Safety mode is available through a BIOS update. Accepting Battery Safety Mode causes the battery to discharge and to cease future charging until Battery Safety Mode is disabled.

- We encourage customers to work directly with HP on this recall for the fastest turnaround; however, we are available to assist as needed. CTComp customers with a Help Desk agreement covering their HP endpoints may submit a ticket to firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with the battery recall at no charge. CTComp customers without a Help Desk agreement should also submit a ticket to email@example.com if assistance is required, but will be billed hourly for any time spent helping with the battery recall.
