Enviro laptop batteries are eco-friendly, economical and efficient
Since solar powered laptops are still out of reach, most of the eco-geeks can switch to Hewlett-Packard’s new line of “Enviro” batteries for laptop. These batteries not only boast of long-lasting power but are also exceptionally eco-friendly. Eliminating the use of PVC plastic or heavy metals like cadmium, arsenic, or mercury in the manufacturing process, the company asserts that the batteries can also be recycled. Also the fact that it can last for at least three years makes its clear that such batteries reduce the e-waste burden on landfills. It has also received a number of “green” certifications.
Unlike the usual laptop batteries that drop significantly after 150 or so charges, this line of green batteries can be charged 1,000 times and get “like new” performance. Being tested for the last three years in conjunction with Boston Power, it has been established that the batteries will be able to keep 80 percent of their initial charge.
Though it is estimated that the cost will exceed by about $20-$30 over the traditional batteries, its sustainable feature overrules the price difference. in the near future, the company also plans to release a portable lithium-ion battery for adding charge to cell phones or other gadgets and intends to enter the auto battery market too.
