Would you recommend this battery for T400?

#1 Post by Think43p » Thu Sep 19, 2019 8:12 am

Not sure which one to buy. Im concerned about the manufacturer and cells used.

Might go for either the 6 or 9

Or this:

Any input is appreciated. Thanks.

Both are knockoffs and really should be avoided if possible. The cells are surely going to be complete garbage, and especially given its a power hungry T400, your at the draw of a lottery to see if you get even a half-usable battery. Get yourself an OEM one and save yourself the hassle.

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.

Thanks for the tip however I searched and was unable to find an original lenovo battery seller.

Any recommended sellers that you know of in the EU zone?

I'd recommend you to look for one with MITSU label on it. And in regard to the knockoff argument - most of newly produced non-OEM products will be at least as good as 10 year old OEM one.
