Wanted: Slim 4-cell prismatic battery for X60s/X61s

Is someone out there willing to part with an X60s/X61s slim 4-cell prismatic battery (Battery 31 / 40Y6999)? Dead is okay. Thanks

I managed to find one on AliExpress for $40 shipped. This one: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/14-4v-2 ... 27518.html

I received the battery pictured. It appeared to be genuine in markings and construction. Battery info showed a manufacture date of 2007-12-05 and a first use date of 2008-01 with one cycle. After 8 cycles and a gauge reset, it reports a capacity of 23.51Wh out of a design capacity of 28.80Wh. Not great, but better than a new ebay standard 4-cell that I had to return.

I expected to receive a re-celled or knock-off, but this one looks like it might be genuine(ly old). It will be interesting to see how long it lasts.

On second thought, I can't see how an original battery could still be kicking after a decade without topping up. Doesn't add up. The important thing is that it exists :)

I have a 600E with a battery at 75% capacity, and my X301 and W701ds came with batteries at 100% in 2019 so it's very possible
