Boston-Power promises better, safer lithium-ion batteries

Startup tech company Boston-Power seems to think it has a solution to the many woes plaguing lithium-ion batteries, emerging from stealth mode today (otherwise known as issuing a press release) to announce that it's raised more than $8 million in Series A financing. Not surprisingly, they're keeping most of the details on the batteries themselves under wraps, saying only that they employ "novel chemistry with groundbreaking innovations" to provide longer life, faster charging and -- most importantly to laptop manufacturers potentially looking to buy 'em by the truckload -- greater safety. The first cells using the company's seemingly cure-all technology are set to be available in the first half of next year, although we're guessing that we'll have to wait a little while longer than that for public consumption.
