Lenovo Ideapad 520S Battery Change

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
