Computer maker Hewlett-Packard next month will offer batteries that could outlast the laptops they power. The batteries are made by Boston Power, the first American company to break into a market dominated by the Japanese. The batteries don't have to be replaced as often as others and that is expected to reduce the impact to the environment.

Curt Nickisch reports for member station WBUR.
