U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission
CPSC Releases Tips on Notebook Computer Use
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Notebook computers are now a part of modern life. They can be found in offices, schools
and homes across the country. There are tens of millions of portable computers in use. The U.S. Consumer
Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is aware of at least 47 incidents involving smoke or fire associated with
notebook computers, from January 2001 through August 2006. To promote safe use of notebook computers,
batteries and chargers, CPSC offers the following tips:
Do not use incompatible computer batteries and chargers. If unsure about whether a replacement battery
or charger is compatible, contact the product manufacturer.
Computer batteries can get hot during normal use. Do not use your computer on your lap.
Do not use your computer on soft surfaces, such as a sofa, bed or carpet, because it can restrict airflow
and cause overheating.
Do not permit a loose battery to come in contact with metal objects, such as coins, keys or jewelry.
Do not crush, puncture or put a high degree of pressure on the battery as this can cause an internal short-
circuit, resulting in overheating.
Avoid dropping or bumping the computer. Dropping it, especially on a hard surface, can potentially cause
damage to the computer and battery. If you suspect damage contact the manufacturer.
Do not place the computer in areas that may get very hot.
Do not get your computer or battery wet. Even though they will dry and appear to operate normally, the
circuitry could slowly corrode and pose a safety hazard.
Follow battery usage, storage and charging guidelines found in the user’s guide.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting
the public from unreasonable risks of serious injury or death from more than 15,000 types of consumer products
under the agency's jurisdiction. Deaths, injuries and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the
nation more than $700 billion annually. The CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from
products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical, or mechanical hazard or can injure children. The CPSC's work to
ensure the safety of consumer products - such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters, and household
chemicals - contributed significantly to the 30 percent decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with
consumer products over the past 30 years.
