X1 Carbon 20A7 battery replacemnt

#1 Post by fish72 » Sun Apr 02, 2017 3:37 am

Hello,

This is my 1st post, So I hope I post it in the right forum.
I've bought battery replacement for my client's X1 Carbon 20A7 on aliexpress.
The orginial battery is 14.8V 3.04Ah/45Wh while the one I was sent is 15.2V 3.29Ah/50Wh
I wanted to know if I can install it instead of the original one.

Thank you for the clarification.
The battery I've attached pictures of, Seems to be fake.
I'm returning it to seller and getting on original one in my country (israel).

Thank you

Better to get it (expensively) directly from Lenovo; good call ;)
