Explosive battery issue with HP Pavilion

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion x360 - 14-ba104na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Recently I received an email from Amazon where I purchased the product from that the battery of the laptop I bought was explosive and that I should take it to the nearest HP store near me. Unfortunately, HP has no store and the people who sell HP laptops cannot exchange the batteries.So am requesting to find out if his information is correct if so can you exchange the laptop and give me one with a non explosive battery

We cannot comment on email from Amazon.

 

I can provide you with the data from HP that includes documentation and information about your notebook battery.

 

If you wish to skip the first parts, scroll down to Recalls and Advisories  (checks / "what to do").

 

If you battery is on the recall list, HP will replace the battery.

 

If your battery is not on the list and you still have concerns, you may replace the battery on your own.
