Flex 5 14" (Yoga 520) battery upgrade?

Hey everyone.

So in Brazil we can only get the Flex 5 (Yoga 520) with the 35Wh battery, but in the US the Flex 5 with an i5 or above comes with the 52.5Wh battery. I really need the extra run time for work requirements, and was wondering if I can replace the battery for the higher one, or will this cause other issues (explosions and such)?

 

The hardware maintenance guide (link below) has both battery models listed with no restrictions and I can probably get the battery shipped down to Brazil.

 

Any thoughts or comments?

 

Thanks in advance, RK

Hi RK, have you found if it is OK to upgrade the battery? I have the same problem with you, my battery is 2 cell with i5 main board. I want to upgrade to the 3 cell battery.

 

Thanks.
