HP to sell laptop battery with 3-year no degradation claim

HP might have a solution to laptops batteries slow death thanks to a Boston-Power-made battery. The battery, dubbed Enviro by HP, should hit select platforms in early 2009 features with some kick-ass features. Allegedly, the battery can be be charged to 80% in just 30 minutes and will not degrade before a 1,000 re-charges. HP is backing the battery with a 3-year warranty to ensure consumers know this battery means business. Truthfully though, we have heard and been burned by fanciful battery claims in the past so while this sounds great, we’ll wait until we can test it ourselves.
