For a small business that relies on mobile technology to stay productive on the go, battery life is a critical factor. That’s why HP’s Elite PCs utilize advanced battery technology to keep your small business powered as long as possible.
In the last two weeks you’ve seen video of HP’s Elite product testing, including an electrostatic shock test and a crush test. This week, you’ll see the key ingredients that go into the batteries that power HP Elite PCs.
The video below shows footage of HP battery technician Dr. John Wozniak explaining the research behind developing PC batteries of all shapes and sizes. You’ll see how HP uses “jelly rolls,” “pouches” and other battery forms to keep technology juiced.
Dr. Wozniak pushes battery cells beyond their limits through extreme usage conditions and temperatures. Not only are the technicians looking for a “safe fail,” but they are also investigating results of several battery examinations that ensure your battery will withstand some intense failures without long-term damage.
