Is there a battery that doesn't stick out for the ThinkPad Edge 11?

#1 Post by RetroGamer87 » Wed Jun 28, 2017 5:03 pm

I just bought a ThinkPad Edge 11. It's a wonderfully small laptop but the battery sticks out the back. Is there a model of battery compatible with this laptop that doesn't stick out the back?

Which battery model is it? It should say it on the battery inside. The number should be in a red circle like for say 44+ battery. You should have extended 17+ battery as you described which has 6 cells, and you need a slim 17 battery which has 3 cells.

This eBay link should suit the battery you are looking for. Just confirm you have a 17+ battery by ejecting it and looking in the same location as in the picture in the eBay link. The X100e, X120e, and Edge 11 use the same exact battery so do not be alarmed.

FYI: You will have reduced capacity due to the battery change.

I sourced one of these before, and found this thread on Lenovo's forums very useful as it has past numbers for three cell batteries https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-1 ... d-p/361579
