Lenovo 6 cell battery 45K2178 $89 with a new sustem - $129 if ordered as a spare?

Lenovo lists the 6 cell 45K2178 S-10 battery as an option with purchase of a complete S-10  at $89 but if bought as a spare its $129?

 

Huh?

 

I called and the Sales PWA* insisted theat is Lenovo policy...- "Well, your SHOULD have bought one when you ordered your S-10, Buddy" and then directed me to Ebay of all places if I didn;t like the price ...(like I enjoy my batteries a la flambe!).

Whoa. I had a coupon and got a spare for $68 as a separate shipment.

 

Don't get those eBay batteries. Rumor has it that they use a lower quality cell that will not last as long. I think I read somewhere that Lenovo batteries use Sanyo cells. The ebay ones use cheaper ones.

 

Take that for what it's worth.

It may be they replace the original 3-cell battery with the 6-cell battery. Thus they deduct a small amount. If you buy the 6-cell separately, you will have both the 3 and 6-cell. Not really sure as I have not purchased a S10.
