>> Our HPs get plenty of off-mains power work, and one I'm responsible for is on its fourth battery and third power pack in the three years I've had it. It was 12 months old when I started work here.

A variety of models, or are these all the same? (subtext: Bad apple, this model, or does HP turn out lots of junk?)

Have you looked into third-party batteries and power supplies? A few companies make power bricks that can be used with several different devices. I've got a Kensington thingie that can power dozens of different laptops (and charge an iPod or cel phone or PDA at the same time). Depending on how much you want to spend, you can get one that runs off mains, car or (if your budget takes you to a better class of seat than mine does) airplane power.

iGo is another one to google.
