I have been using this genuine X60T battery for a couple of months now, I got it in very good condition, with 3+ hours of discharge time. Unfortunately, when I was trying to boot my X601T up yesterday from battery, the laptop could not power up anymore. After plugging in the charger, the infamous blinking orange battery LED came on indicating its death. Since then I am only using the laptop from the PSU.
I believe that the battery cells are still in great condition, as they were performing wonderfully a couple of days ago.
I suspect something might be wrong with the supporting circuit of the battery. I also have some shady memories about programming the battery eeprom could extend the batteries life, but I could be completely wrong here. Any ideas what I could try here? Is this even worth the trouble? I just simply find it strange that such a good X60 battery dies like this from one day to another.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
Reminds me to do it again soon, W7 had new updates recently!

I hate to tell you but this approach doesn't guarantee that you won't wake up to a dead battery the very next time. All batteries seen in *60/61/*00 are notorious for dying out of the blue. It's the controller in them that decides the time of death. I've had them DOA right out of the box, NOS examples, never charged.
Just make sure that you know what's in them before you download and install them...Reminds me to do it again soon, W7 had new updates recently!

I usually have a sniff about, KB4493132 has already been hidden (it's the W7 End of Life notifier update, no thanks!)
Battery still fine too!
