Re: Project result report: Re-celling 8-cell X6x (non-tablet) battery

would love to see them pictures of the process of recelling. Just can't trust what you buy nowadays, even if it looks legit and all internally you cannot see it.

SDD V14X with which Thinkpad?

I need to use SDD diagnostic software V14X, and would like to know which is the best thinkpad to use? Light and portability is priority and I have a X200 tablet unless there is another model that members have used and tested on the field.

Re: Rebuilding an X220T, which battery and display upgrade?

Both batteries are Chinese knock-offs and both have different shapes. No idea how good/bad they are. I suggest you download the X220T manual from the above HMM -link.
