Boston-Power Sonata Green Super-Battery

Nathan Simon Nathan Simon Profile: Nathan Simon

I wanted to post a follow up on Boston Power from a previous post I made, you can check that out here.

I stated that HP would be the first to utilize this new technology, and guess what, they have been named one of the Top 50 companies on “Going Green East” Boston-Power fell under the category of “Energy Storage Systems” Full story here.

The “Going Green East” Top 50 will be honored on March 10th, 2009 in Boston, MA.

I would also like to mention the fact that HP will charging a premium of 20-30 USD on the new batteries, well worth the cost considering these new batteries will be able to handle 1000 cycles before starting to loose life(current Li-on batteries are about 300 cycles).

I know im a bit late with this last bit of info, but Boston-Power has since tripled production of its laptop battery, and on February 24th Boston-Power expanded mass production of its Sonata rechargeable batteries through a 5 year partnership with GP Batteries from China. GP Batteries is the top consumer battery manufacturer in Greater China. Full Story here.

It would be interesting once Net-books start to ship with these new green batteries. Ill keep my eyes on it and report back here.
