WTB: x61t battery

#1 Post by Khatoblepas » Tue Jun 12, 2018 12:48 am

I use my x61t quite a lot, and am interested in getting a refurbished battery for it so the battery life on my laptop isn't at most an hour. Anyone in Europe up to putting new cells in a battery? I am hesitant to extend it to the USA as the shipping would be killer.

a replacement genuine battery for it. Hopefully one that has quite a bit of charge on it.

Recelling or a new / good working battery itself?

Considering the age of the laptop, I doubt there are any batteries left that hold a good enough charge. Besides, I'm sure that battery technology has advanced enough that a recelled battery would last longer than a "new" one.

1. You never know what cells will really be used.
2. The opposite. Older battery quality is superior to the newer ones. And this is brought to you from X61t w/genuine, 9-years-old battery holding 4hrs of use ;)
