[Wired] HP Powers Notebooks With Longer Lasting Batteries

Boston Power says its batteries, called Sonata, charge much faster than conventional batteries and they don't lose capacity over time. Sonata batteries charge to about 80 percent capacity in 30 minutes compared to the two hours that typical notebook batteries take currently, says the company. It also claims its batteries will prevent overheating and related fires.

About 18 HP consumer PC models will offer users the option to include the Sonata batteries instead of the standard batteries. And it cost consumers just about 20 percent more than current batteries. Separately, the Sonata batteries will be priced at $150 as an accessory for existing notebooks.
