flex 5 (14") -- 2 cell battery upgradable to 3 cell?

Hello everyone.

 

I have bought this flex 5 with 7th i5 CPU, 256G SSD, and 2 cell battery. The laptop is great for me except the battery doesn't last enough. I wonder if I can replace the 2 cell battery with a 3 cell battery? From the HMM, I find some 3 cell batteries. But I don't know if they are compatible with my computer as the voltage is different. And If the battery is upgradable, do I need to upgrade the AC adapter as well? mine is 2.25A, while 3 cell battery versions have a 3.25A adapter.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi deepthoughts,

Warm Greetings & welcome to Lenovo Community, happy to have you here.

 

Battery is upgradable, and the current AC Adapter will work with your system but battery will charge slow with 45 AC Adapter. 

 

I hope the above information helped you.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

 

Regards,
Prabhansh
