Re: WTB: genuine working battery for X6x tablet

George,

I have what I believe to be a NOS 8 cell.

I loaned an employee my last x61t and it was "lost."


PM me your address and the post office will make magic happen.


Only worry is is it going to take a charge - I have no good way of testing.

Manufactured 2009-02-02.

Bob,

Any luck moving this?


I have a flaky x200 that might benefit from some of these parts.

Re: Tried Windows 10 on my X201 and went back to 8.1

I upgraded my Thinkpad Tab 2 to 10, and all the drivers that were buggy in 8.1 were reused and buggy - I killed it trying to reload the video driver. I restored to 8, then upgraded to 10 and it seems pretty good. I never saw all day battery life before and still don't, but the desktop seems better o...

Indeed, the advanced tab is how I know the cells have about 86% of their original capacity remaining, the 6 cell from the factory should have 43.2 Wh of capacity, I am at about 37 Wh or so (after a few run down cycles).

Maybe its the screen real estate? After looking at my X201 6 cell, it is obvious in that the cylindrical 6 cell of the X201 has a substantially higher capacity than the prismatic 6 cell I have for the X301. So I am thinking dialing down the screen brightness, and turning off WWAN and any other no es...

x301: New to me and is that really all the battery can do?

So I impulse bought an x301 the other day. It looks pretty good, just the 1.4 GHz and 64 GB SSD (mini PCI w/ 64 GB transflash to go in shortly), but with a battery pack with 85% of its original capacity, I maybe get 2 hours out of it, running Call of Duty for a load and some time on the web.

Morning all, before I head to Ebay and buy them, does anyone have a tight hinge and good bezel for a X61t available? I should be able to salvage my clearplate if you have the bezel without it or if the X60t screen bezel is compatible (is it?).
