Lenovo Ideapad 520S Battery Change

2018-07-03, 15:03 PM

Hi there,

 

I have a couple of quick questions regarding Lenovo IdeaPad 520S battery change.

I purchased a new unit in May 2018 (type 81BL009-GUS) and only realized that it came with a 2 cell 30Wh battery. I understand that some of the 520S comes with a much larger battery like 3 cell 52.5Wh, which is much more attractive with 8 - 10 hour life.

 

I further looked into it:

The 2cell battery model is type L14L2P21 (30Wh, 8.4V voltage) 

The 3cell battery model is type L15L3PB0 (52.5Wh, 11.4V voltage)

 

Can I check if anyone know:

1. Where to get authentic lenovo battery? The sales team wont sell it to me

2. Whether I can directly change these 2 batteries given the difference in voltage. Would this have any impact on laptop performance?

 

Thanks!

Same issue here, the 30Wh battery is laughable, what a terrible battery. Really need to know if its possible to upgrade to the better battery, else I will return my laptop

Hi guy!

I have the same problem. I've searched on internet, called lenovo and gone to some technical shops and they said me that is possible to replace battery. I found this shop: www.laptop-parts-shop.com/ideapad-520s-114v-525wh-battery-for-lenovo-laptop-p-328226.html.

the battery is with this code: 

L15C3PB1.

 

It is compatible with my 520S 14IKB-80x2  


Do you replace your laptop's battery? there is difference about duration? how long does the charge last?
