For the batteries that are refered to as for the "T40" series, it is compatible with all T4x's right? I'm confused because I wanted to buy a FRU #08k8193 ("T40 series battery") from someone, which I found on the Lenovo website that its compatible with two models of T40's but no mention of anything else. I called Lenovo to ask, and for my general question, "My friend has a battery for T40, will it work with a T43?" and the answer was no (???)....
I'm browsing around the EPP website to find battery options for the T43 I want to get (2687-DSU), though, and all batteries are referred to in the format [Letter][integer][zero], such as A30 series, T40 series, R50 series, etc...
Thanks in advance.
Do I have this right?
"T40 series battery" (like FRU 08k8193, FRU 30R4955 "ThinkPad T40/R50 Series 6 C,ell Li-Ion Battery," 92P1101 ThinkPad T40/R50 Series 6 Cell Li-Ion Battery" 08K8214 ThinkPad T40/R50 Series Li-Ion Battery).
Physically - fits
Capacity - lower
T43 specific battery (any examples?)
Capacity - higher
BTW, if your not too familiar with batteries, both operate at 10.6v, so electrically, they're compatable. The amp hour (capacity) is like the size of the fuel tank on your car, you can drive your car regardless if it has a 6.6 gallon fuel capacity or a 7.2 gallon fuel capacity...you just won't make it as far with the lower capacity.
Thinkpad T43 (2687-DSU) | PM 2.0GHz @ 1.068v | 100GB Hitachi 7K100 | 2.0GB Dual-Channel | X300 64MB | 14.1" SXGA | DVD+RW | Intel 2915 ABG | ThinkDock II & Mini-Dock |
Will the new T43 batt work in a T42? and would I in turn get longer battery life?JHaislet wrote:I believe so. The T4x one is like 6.6amp hour, whereas the T43 6-cell (the new one) is 7.2amp hour.
