Thinkpad 600 and aftermarket batteries
Anybody pleased with buying re-manufactured batteries for the TP600?
I bought one. It charged in an hour but got less than 9 minutes
operation on battery (said ATB brand). Tried several full
charge/discharge operations to no avail.
Store promptly sent a replacement (no name on this one). It took
forever to charge (nearly 4 hours) but worked and I got about 1-1/2
hours on the battery (doing nothing but letting it run down with full
power on LCD screen). Did a couple full charge/discharges for good
measure. Subsequent charge times were about 3 hours, battery lasted
about 1-1/2 hours. Ne...Thinkpad X21. Battery ok, thinkpad does not power on
I have a problem with my Thinkpad X21. I have two batteries, which both
deliver (as soon as the system is running) approx 3 1/2 to 4 hrs of
operation time, so the batteries are ok. But something strange happened to
me. Since a certain date it is not possible to turn the x21 on if only the
battery is inserted (no AC power). Only a few minutes after charging the
battery it can be powered on from battery. As soon as it is running (when
pluggin AC and Battery it can be turned on), the battery is working fine
and the system can be disconnected from AC (and send to sleep mode...THINKPAD Batteries -
I need to replace a battery in a Thinkpad 380
The existing battery is Ni-MH at 8.4 volts
I notice however that replacement Li-ion batteries for the 380 (which
I'd prefer) are listed as 10.8 volts.
Probably a dumb question but are these Li-ion batteries compatible?

I have replaced my A22m battery cell with 6 pcs 2200mA new cell. Does
anyone knows how to clear/reset the battery control circuit? because the
computer is not reporting the right battery status, including full charge
capacity, design capacity, cycle count etc.
...Thinkpad X21 Batteries
question about batteries for the Thinkpad X21... Poking around, I have
found the following specifications for batteries that suppsedly work in
the X21 :
now, apparently the 10.8V version will not work with the X30 series,
while the 14.4V does. my X21 came with a 10.8V 3600mAH. is there a
definitive source of which of these really exist and what their FRUs
are ? Do the higher capacities batteries really exist ? the on-line
store does not specify the capacity of the battery they sell for the
X21, what are you likely to get ?

I just bought a used thinkpad x23. The battery is for all intents and

overnight, but that has not worked....

A friend of ours has an ibm thinkpad. He leaves the battery in even
though he has the laptop plugged in to the ac. A few days ago the
computer got left on overnight (he usually turns it off after using it)
and in the morning the battery was dead, even though it was plugged in
to the ac. It took a long time to recharge the battery (after turning
the computer off). Now the computer is having alot of problems freezing
and programs not functioning right.
Any ideas what's wrong other than a virus, etc.? Could the battery have
caused this? There are still problems when the battery is removed.
...thinkpad battery dies
hi just picked up 2nd habd thinkpad 600 when using battery the meter gets to
aroun 60% then drops straight down to 4% and asks me to shutdown, I know
battary is getting on but is there anyway to reset/revive batteries?????
because a new one is going to be �80 laptop/wifi card only cost me �140
Battery life sucks on the thinkpad, at least on the 600 series. Even a brand
new batt will do that within a year.

...Thinkpad with 2 batteries
I�m working on a Thinkpad T43 with a second battery in the Multibay slot.
I want this second battery to be used only when the main battery got emtpy,
so that the PC still got power to change the main battery during operation.
It really think, this would be a great feature IBM should be interested in
- besides it�s not hard to implement in the engery manager.
Does s.o. know where to put this suggestion for improvement to IBM /
Is there an extenstion or third-party tool? Maybe does someone know where
to post this request better than to this group?!
Greetings...IBM ThinkPad battery question
A friend gave me their old IBM ThinkPad T22. Although it runs fine off of
the AC power supply, it won't run at all off the battery. I thought even a
worn out rechargeable battery would hold a charge for a short time, but
except for the green battery indicator coming on, this acts as if there's no
battery at all. If I'm running it on AC and unplug the cord, it dies
Is there anything I could do to confirm that it's actually a bad battery,
and not something else, before forking out the $$ on a new battery?
Thanks for any help. I appreciate it.
&q...thinkpad 380ed battery question
I have been given an IBM 380ED laptop.
Whilst the computer works fine connected to the power supply, the battery
does not seem to hold the charge once the external power supply is removed.
The symptoms are as follows:
Orange light charging battery.
Green light battery fully charged.
Remove power supply/charger. Battery completely dead..
Reconnect power supply/charger.
Bettery indicator orange again.
Assuming correctly I probably just need a new battey?

I have a 600X--just a fantastic workhorse--that I bought used as part
of a lot that came from a business that went under. When it arrived a
little over 1.5 years ago, the battery didn't take a full charge and
the company I ordered it from sent me a brand new off-brand battery.
It has worked well, but is now down to about 35% max charge with a
working time of about a half hour.
There are an overwhelming number of battery options. I can't really
afford a new one from IBM (over $200) but don't want a piece of crap
that will die in a year for 90 bucks either. Has anyone had experience...about IBM THINKPAD A30 battery

...Source for Thinkpad 600 battery???
My college daughters IBM battery has died. If the battery is in the laptop
it wont even start. Take the battery out and it will run on AC power. So,
I'm looking for a battery. I see about $170 at batteries.com and $80 for a
"new" one on e-bay.
How do I know if the battery I buy is "new"????
Any suggested sources?
I'm new to laptops and have never bought a battery for one before so any
advice is greatly appreciated.

GARBAGE, a fact IBM refused to fess up to. Panasonic plac...Thinkpad 760 battery replacement ?
I give up. I have a TP 760 and cannot understand how to access and
replace the CMOS battery. Any clues ?
While I'm at it, it may be futile anyway. I am assuming a Power On
error signal that sounds like a siren starting high and falling low and
repeating indicates either a low CMOS battery or low regular battery ?
Or is it more serious indicating a failed motherboard or whatever... in
which case, please disregard this entire post.
Any help would be much appreciated...
...thinkpad freezes on adapter but not on battery
This is an ibm thinkpad i series, model 1492. Some of the power adapters
for this model were defective and caused fires or burned out mainboards.
This one started freezing after about 20 minutes plugged in. The ibm
tech people thought the mainboard was burned out.
Dr. Dos said nothing was wrong.
I saw a post where someone was advising to try using just the battery,
which we did, and it hasn't frozen after 1 hr. 15 minutes.
I was wondering if replacing the power connector (on the laptop) might
fix it. (IBM already replaced the power adapter - it was on recall.)

Go to the web and buy a new one?
Seriously, these batteries have controllers that record their history
and protect the cells from being mishandled. Mishandled cells
can result in fire or explosion. This is a real risk with the
type of cells used!
Of course the manufacturers er...
