WTB Thinkpad X60T Battery and CMOS Battery

#1 Post by thinkandtinker » Fri Feb 21, 2020 4:30 pm

Happy to buy either 4-cell or 8-cell.
On ebay, I see $200 OEM batteries and $30-40 Chinese batteries, and I don't know if I ought to trust the ones from China.
Any advice on the topic would also be very welcome, as my laptop only currently works when plugged in... :D
I also have a dead CMOS battery, so I'd like to buy one of those, too.

Thank you!

Just as FYI, X60T shares CMOS battery with most other ThinkPads, so that should be an easy find.

As for the main battery, I was in the same boat a while ago and ended up getting a re-celled original battery through a friend of mine and a fellow forum member, all the way from UK.

Be mindful of the fact that OEM batteries for these have a higher than usual DOA rate. I've seen quite a few in which controller had decided that the battery was "dead" although the box was unopened.

Good luck.

ajkula66, thank you for the info about the CMOS battery, and the DOA rate on the OEM main batteries.

Dave, I have posted on the other thread - I would be happy to buy one of the X6X tablet batteries as soon as you have info on them.

Is it a good idea to buy used CMOS batteries, like the following?
