    Sounds really interesting. As the sort of person who holds onto kit until it is truly dead, I would gladly pay £20 extra for a battery like this. My laptop is over 5 years old now and still does what it needs to perfectly, except for the battery. I just hope that the batteries become a common option or even standard fit for other companies too, as I'm not really a fan of HP kit.

    Not exaggerated, my laptop battery lasts 10 minutes before it runs out.

    Great idea. I had to get a new one for my last laptop, because after about two and a half years it didn't charge at all - not even 10 minutes. It was as good as not having a battery, so I saved the weight and didn't carry it :)

    I have a funny feeling it had something to do with me lending it to someone, it had an OK battery before he had it, then a couple of months later there was nothing, though what he could have done to it I have no idea.

    They just need to make Fusion battery packs already. The power of a nuclear reactor in the palm of your hand!
