HANOVER, N.H. — In the fall of 2008, police departments in York County received new batteries and chargers from M/A-COM as part of the new 911 system the county was having installed.

But officers soon discovered what they believed was a major shortcoming with the new Nickel-cadmium batteries - their charge didn't hold for an entire shift, which for police departments can last as long as 12 hours.
