HP Chromebook 11 charger recall detailed by Google

Google and HP have recently begun the recall process for the Chromebook 11 charger. The charger was one of the reasons this particular Chromebook attracted some attention at launch, it is microUSB and similar to the one you already have for your smartphone or tablet. But at the same time, that charger was also prone to overheating and after some "guidance and approval" from the CPSC, the recall process is now underway.

HP released the Chromebook 11 back in October, only to have it pulled from the shelves a month later. The Chromebook was pulled due to issues with the charger. At the time HP had said a "small number" of user reports showed the charger being "damaged due to over-heating during use." While HP has yet to say when the Chromebook 11 would return to an available status, there has been some testing done on one of those chargers.

HP officially announced the Chromebook 11 back in early-October. This model arrived as a Chromebook with an 11.6-inch display and while there was some mention of the color options at launch, there was something slightly more interesting. The HP Chromebook 11 used a microUSB charger, just like you would see with a smartphone or tablet. But as we later learned, that caused an issue.
