X60s vs. X61s battery - cover & foot are different? I there an adapter plate?

[ Edited ]

 

I just aquired an X61s and the installed battery (8 cell - it extends out the back) is a bit odd.

 

It snaps in fine and works OK, but there is a gap at the left end (with laptop upside down) about 1/4" wide, and the battery pack that stands a bit proud of the bottom of the unit only has one foot on it which is on the right side...

 

It was suggested to me that I may have an X60s battery instead of the X61s style....

Looking on the Lenovo site it seems they take the same P/N

(actually I could not find a battery marked for the X61s, but only for the X60 "series" )

 

Has anyone else run into this?

Is there an adapter plate that might fix this?

 

THANKS!

It's been a long time since I've owned a non-tablet X6x machine, but does this look like a solution:
