Thanks my laptop is not part of the recall.

Richardito you are a jackhole Have the guts to say why you red someone for an informational post!

FWIW, It's pretty difficult to manually check the battery as it's been an internal part for numerous years now.

Had to stand on 1 foot and use a magnifying glass to perform a manual battery check - my battery was not affected.

Thanks OP!  Appreciate the post.
