Sorry, no commercial sellers allowed here without asking Bill
All I'd require is the cost of the cells, return shipping, and something for my labor/testing ($50).
Several have commented that the cost of the cells sometimes exceeds that of the machine. This might be true, but you can enhance the collectibility of these old machines and now use them as they were originally intended, which is not tethered to a power supply. Plus, you can install the latest BIOS update, something you couldn't do on the older machines with a missing or dead battery.
Just shoot me a PM if you're interested.

that came with my recent eBay (SafeDate/d) T61 finds ...
are BOTH ... "kaput(t)/kapot" ...
Is there any kind of ... "AfterMarket"/"AfterLife" ... at all ...
for such T61 batteries
You ask about their afterlife I see...
Oh yes, quite useful items.
Let's see....well it could be used as a paperweight...quite useful.
Oh, I know, a bludgeon, in case anyone tries to steal your T61/p.
Well how about as a primitive explosive by cutting it open and exposing the lithium to air or water?
Maybe recycle the plastic and 3D print a new object?
Sell it for scrap metal and use the money to buy something new?
And of course the most useful thing, filling the ugly gap in the back of a T61p that has no battery.
Oh ,you meant actually using it as a battery, well I think you saw this coming.
The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
