Does X270 built-in battery fit X260?

#1 Post by Nickolai » Mon Oct 26, 2020 6:54 pm

A built-in battery has died on my brother's X260, so he found a replacement one for X270 (extended capacity, to boot). Does anyone know if it will fit?

Some context: suddenly, laptop switched off in the middle of working on battery and refused to turn on, no matter what. My bro turned the laptop over to the technician who said that the laptop won't work with the built-in battery installed, and removed it, for now. Should the extended capacity battery for the X270 work in a X260?

Sorry for the lack of further details.

Yes, they will work.
Actually all batteries from X240-X270 will work.
You should download the frubom (=parts list) from each of those machines, to see more of those P/N or FRU.
Still NOT a great day for a Guinness! (the Real Black Stuff). And I have TWO (closed) pubs within 500 meters/yards!
