Getting new x2100 display and accessories

#1 Post by gevor » Mon Feb 13, 2023 8:27 am


I got my x2100 two years ago from XYtech, a 6-core version with 12.2" FHD display, and now I want to upgrade it a bit.

Looks like Xue Yao is not responding to the emails, and I am a bit lost with all the x2100 manufacturers, so I would appreciate if you could guide me on how to:
* get the new 13" 3:2 display, ideally already with the lid (preferably the reinforced one, like https://www.xyte.ch/2020/08/04/x2100-august-update/), so I can just replace my old one
* get a spare display cable
* choose the right USB-C charger. GaN, I guess, but which one? Can I use the 65W one if I turn off fast charging in BIOS, or shall I get the 90/100W anyway?
* choose the right 6-cell battery

BTW, my battery was ok-ish until recently, showing 88% left capacity and working fine, +/-, but a couple of weeks ago it started going from 40% charge straight to critical 4%. I guess, it might be just the battery decay (it's not the original one), but if it has something to do with software / calibration, I would appreciate any help in fixing it. I was using laptop mostly plugged in, so it should not have that many cycles.

Other than Xue Yao the only guy I'm aware of selling the x2100 outside of China is Jacky of LCDFans/CNMOD. His website is below. Back in 2021, a month or two after getting my x2100 from Xue Yao, I had to send it back to him for a motherboard replacement, and I ordered a backup x210 3rd generation from Jacky, and it arrived in about a month. He was very good about responding to my emails and answering a question after it arrived. I'd start by contacting him and see if he can help.
