ISO 72wh battery supplier for X250

#1 Post by elray » Sun Sep 29, 2019 7:22 pm

I discovered that my "six cell" battery is but 48wh, not the 72wh I inferred when I purchased.

Searching the Ebay, there are plenty of sellers listing 0C52862's, but they're all just keyword-spamming, selling 48wh batteries.

The only "genuine" parts come from Chinese sellers.
That might be perfectly legit, but I'd rather not risk it, as prior experience is mixed and returns are complicated.

Lenovo is sold out, not that I was intending to pay $120.

I can live with the remaining 30wh capacity yielding 5 hours for a long time (no internal battery) while I sort things out.
But I'd like to find a reputable domestic source for a new 72wh battery, if such exists.

Suggestions welcome.

AFAIK x240/x250/x260 and possibly x270 can all use the same batteries, so expand your search.
Lovely day for a Guinness! (the Real Black Stuff). And pigs CAN fly!
