X60s/61s Prismatic

#1 Post by SynbiosVyse » Sun Jan 28, 2018 1:13 pm

These batteries are so hard to find, I finally found one and it was DOA despite it being new old stock. It was manufactured in 2013 and dead as a doornail.

Why aren't there any 3rd party batteries with the prismatic form factor? I imagine the modern day cells could pack a lot more mAh than back when they were first produced. Any options if I don't want a hump? Maybe giving this one a jolt to revive it?

(a) Probably modern day cells are not so much more efficient as you would hope.
(b) Probably no one cares.

Take the existing dead battery and re-cell it (yourself or take it to a specialist). See how much total Wh you can get, I'd be curious to find out.
