T6x - Models & Battery Life

#1 Post by Edward » Wed May 10, 2006 2:34 pm

I've search this forum and have not found an all encompassing thread that lists model and battery life.

I am thinking about a T6x and battery life (vs GPU) is important to me.

Would you please fill in the following information?

1. Model#
2. Screen size and resolution
3. GPU chip
4. Battery (6 or 9 cell)
5. Battery life

6. Any special settings (ex. brightness level)?

Thank you.

Use Power Manager, Battery Information (tab) and look under the Battery details...

I've got the express 15" T60p (2623DDU) and it comes with a 9 cell Panasonic...at least mine did.

EDIT: Forgot to answer poster, sorry!

1. Model 2623DDU
2. Screen 15" IPS UXGA
3. GPU ATI FireGL V5200
4. Battery 9 cell Panasonic
5. Batt life 3 hours
6. Full LCD brightness and ALL devices in Device Manager with Power Management options OFF (all devices always on). Basically when I unplug NOTHING changes except current begings depleting the batt. I can run 4 hours with the 12 cell config (9 cell + 3 cell ultrabay).
T60p 2623DDU / 2GB DDR2 / Dual PCIe Gigabit NICs! (OB & ExpressCard) / CardBus 5-in1 / 3, 6 & 9 cell batts / travel 65W & dual 90W AC adapters / Kensington Pilot Mini BT Mouse

802 what?!? I Use EVDO every day and it rocks, man!

Umm... Don't think he actually has the laptop yet.

creed, there are probably 2 or more suppliers for the 9-cell batteries. You will have to order the machine first, and when they allocate a serial number, you can look that up on the parts lookup page.

Have a look at the FAQ.

I'm running a 6 cell @ 4 hours with everything at full performance including screen brightness. Just as though it was plugged in.

Then when I ad the ultrabay battery I get between 9-10 hrs.

See below for the specs of my T60.

Thanks to everyone that has replied so far.

I had to turn my X41 back to my former employer yesterday and have placed an order for a T60 2623-D4U. My new employer will give me a Latitude to use (hope its the new D620) but its time to get my own personal laptop.

Decided to purchase it from www.costcentral.com. It comes with a 6 cell so I purchased an additional 9 cell and will probably ebay the 6 cell (I hate how you can't swap a simple accessory like that).

The 2623-D4U comes with a 14.1" 1400 x 1050, video of x1300. I'll post the battery life with the 9 cell as soon as I get it.

Battery

#9 Post by stephenaron » Sun May 14, 2006 9:27 am

I see someone says they get 9-10 hours of life out of their t60. They are the only person i see getting this type of time. Ihave a t60p and with 2 batteries get 5-6.

When asking a question like this you will always get someone who will "stretch" the truth. On both my T43p and T60p 5-6 hours is not uncommon. MUCH depends on your settings and habits but 5-6 hours is not hard to get.

Quick update, costcentral.com inventory is dubious. Cancelled my backordered 2623D4U order from them and went with the Lenovo special 1953D6U w/6 cell. It was the 'buy today, ship today' deal ... I'll post my battery life soon.

This is exactly the same frustrating experience I had with CostCentral. I even called to place my order. The person who took it said they had the computer in stock. Late the next day I get a confirmation email saying the computer would be shipped in 2-3 weeks!!!

So I went to Euclid Computers, the web site said they had it, I called in and they indeed had it in stock. I received it the next day!
They were very courteous and I saved sales tax as well.

If there are any new T60 owners please feel free to reply with your battery times.

So far, would it be a valid conclusion that the FireGL uses more juice than the X1400? So much that your lose +/- 1 hour of battery time?

Woo hoo! Finally got it and (1) no dead/stuck pixels (2) fan is on all the time but minimal steady hum.

1. 1953 D6U
2. 14.1" XGA
3. GMA 950
4. 6 cell
5. about 4:40+ (initial, will update after a little real world use and optimization)
6. Thinkpad max battery life w/4 of 7 brightness

A little disappointed about how thick it is. Side by side with the Latitude D610, there's little difference. I think the T4x series is more thin.
