T61 with brand new battery that died in a few months.

#1 Post by devinfriday » Mon Sep 12, 2022 7:00 am

Hi, i have putted together a T61 with a T9300 and 8Gb of DDR2 ram with a brand new compatible battery. This battery died a few months after first turn on, if unplugged from AC it did not power on and if it's on AC the notebook insta-turn off if disconnected from the wall outlet. The weird thing is HWMonitor reports 0% wear level and 103% of capacity, the same with BatteryInfoView. What has gone wrong with it?
Is the battery simple a piece of crap?

After a few tests i found that the battery is good, i have a spare one with less than 10% of charge that is reported as is from batteryinfoview, so this software is ok, it's the T61's fault, it won't power on only with battery, if i power on AC it starts, but if the AC fails the notebook insta-power off. Maybe some fuse blow up :(
